Of course, this raises the following very good question: What does Mike Trout have to do to start getting linked to the New York Yankees in six years? I mean, come on, guys.
I get it. There are obvious reasons why Harper would be linked to the Yankees before Trout. Harper was on the cover of Sports Illustrated when he was 16 years old, he was the first overall draft pick, and most importantly, he would rank high on the Nana Index. And don’t even get me started on the East Coast bias.
However, let’s not forget about Mike Trout. He’s every bit equally deserving, if not moreso, of being linked to the Yankees in six years.
Note: I’m not going to link to the piece of shit in question. If you’d like to read it, you can Google the headline and I’m sure it will come up.
