Congratulations on understanding that a sample size of 20 games means literally next to nothing.
You have no way of truly proving that Trout is the reason that the Angels turned their season around. Trout playing well didn't magically inspire Pujols to start hitting again. With such a loaded roster (Hell, they were my WS pick preseason before we even knew what Trout would do), they easily could have turned the season around without Trout. This argument that Trout turned the Angels season around is so flawed.
