Also, If Trout's "slump" is a very good .257/.380/.455 line (September) then it just tells you how incredibly good he was this year. Best player in the entire league by far this season.
I think Buster Posey might have a legit argument for being super, super close to Trout in terms of value.
He was virtually Trouts equal on offense and I feel like Posey's positional value and defensive ability are not truly reflective in his WAR, which was still a quite impressive 8.
