If you’re well versed on baseball superstar Mike Trout, then you probably know that he’s a big Philadelphia Eagles fan. So it was no surprise that in his chat with Yahoo Sports MLB writer Tim Brown, the two discussed, well, football.
“As a sports fan in general, when your team wins the championship, it definitely pumps you up a bit.” Trout said of the Eagles’ recent Super Bowl crown on the Yahoo Sports MLB Podcast.
The other topics in the discussion included Trout’s Eagles fandom and Philly’s recent drafting of a rugby giant.
Another portion of the football discussion that stood out was hearing Trout play fantasy general manager, assigning current MLB players to three skill position roles (at the 2:04 mark of the podcast). His choices:
QB: Max Scherzer (“He can put it probably anywhere he wants.”)
RB 1: Giancarlo Stanton
RB 2: Aaron Judge
Perhaps this will change as the Phillies’ rebuilding process takes root.
