With the Halos' season slowly vanishing into the deep, dark nothing like DiCaprio at the end of "Titanic," one can always turn to player development news and minor league stats for a small measure of succor. (This is what got me through a good deal of the 80s and all the 90s, by the way.) Mike Trout: Among his many glorious attributes, has an uncanny knack for getting on base. Currently nurturing a 22-game on-base streak. Unlike so many Halo prospects of late, the guy can actually take a walk. Which prompts the question: Where will he ultimately bat in the Angels line-up? With his modest power (7 HR) he seems like a prototypical three-hole hitter. Hmm... but that OBP... such a shame not to have it at lead-off. Hopefully, he will present the team with a sort of a Alfonso Soriano dilemma... except with higher AVG and OBP.
