They both have the intensity, Trout's is just expressed with a smile. In both cases, the only thing that could derail their careers is that they are too intense.

If I had to pick right now I'd take Trout. But, yeah, Harper could definitely have the better career when all is said and done.

Harper hit another upper deck homer today.

If it weren't for Trout's emergence, he would be the SI cover boy at this point. Trout was in the minors at 19. Not taking anything away from Trout, good grief - he is putting up epic numbers - but Harper at 19 is putting up historic numbers as well. He has an arm in CF that is unmatched right now in my view, and he makes sh*t happen, scoring runs on infield ground outs and has incredible baseball instincts at such a young age.

Give me Harper. He has done it right and I love the intensity.

Oh, I don't disagree Rotoman. Just pointing that out.

Yes you did, though I didn't remember just how similar. Mea culpa.

Didn't I post the same thing here 6 weeks ago?

I think that's part of the point. This is a list of uniform excellence. And that while he's not Trout, Harper has been pretty darn good. As you might imagine, his recent rebound has been a relief to me.

One of the problems with this is that the sample size of 19 year old hitters with 500+ PAs is woefully small.

I would be interested to see a study comparing 2nd half rookie year that had at least 1 full season in the minors in the same classification(where they have to make adjustments from facing the same teams multiple times) compared to the ones that jumped up 1 or 2 and didn't get that same experience of having to make adjustments.
