Who's Hot/Not - Week 4 - 2021
Before we start this weeks Who' s Hot/Not, there's one player that needs to be mentioned. He usually doesn't make the list, given he's usually the best hitter in baseball and always hot. Mike Trout has been absolutely on fire. Here are his stats so far in 2021:
7 home runs/16 RBI's
Trout is currently on pace for the 6th best season ever by OPS standards. Here's an even more insane stat; Trout is on pace for a 14.2 WAR this season, good for BEST EVER (Babe Ruth finished with a 14.1 WAR back in 1923.) While we wouldn't think Trout would reach another level, there needs to be discussions about him making the Hall of Fame now. We all know he won't finish the season batting over .400, but this current pace is worth being noted. Now that we've recognized the best hitter in baseball, let's move on to the feature presentation.
