How is this relevant? Henry Aaron only won one MVP in 23 seasons, and he was one of the greatest players in the history of baseball. Willie Mays, who may have been the greatest, only won two in 22 seasons, and they came more than a decade apart.

Ted Williams had a better opening to his career than Trout did, following up his first two seasons with a third hitting .406 with an on-base percentage of .553 while leading the league in home runs, and he didn't win the first of his two MVPs for another four years.
