Matching Mike Trout with his Los Angeles Rams parallel: Aaron Donald
LA Angels' franchise player Mike Trout is very similar to Los Angeles Rams' franchise player Aaron Donald. Both seem to never dip in production. Both are just world-beaters every single year.
Donald keeps chugging along, having won three AP Defensive Player of the Year Awards. Trout has a pretty great resume himself, winning three AL MVP awards. Both players aren't even close to being washed yet, and still already have all-time great resumes.
They've both been the best at their positions for as long as they've been in the game, and show no signs of stopping. They've been the leaders of their team, and just like Trout, Donald never displayed any negative energy when the team wasn't winning.
Donald is a sign of hope for Trout's career, as we hope Trout can eventually start winning despite the Angels having a slow start to his career. The Rams improved the rest of the roster to get their star in the postseason. The hope is that Perry Minasian will do the same for ours.
Donald went from being expected to lose the division, to being in the Super Bowl in just a matter of weeks. Hopefully the Angels can have a similar turnaround.
