Mike Trout finishes No. 1 on Player Rater

• Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout had two hits in Wednesday's season finale, finishing with an incredible .326 batting average, 30 home runs, 129 runs scored and 49 stolen bases. He's the champ on ESPN's Player Rater, beating out Ryan Braun and Miguel Cabrera. Yes, Cabrera won the Triple Crown, but the steals separate Trout and Braun. Trout-Braun-Cabrera is precisely my early 1-2-3 for 2013.
