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.
He has a war of 10.7 Without him they are not in contention to make the playoffs... Hes the only reason they were in the hunt. Yet again the angels had a better record then the tigers im not going to penalize trout because he plays in the best division in baseball.
