Darryl Strawberry Says Mike Trout Can’t Be Compared To Mickey Mantle [AUDIO]
"I think he's better than Mickey Mantle," Buster Olney said on Armen and Levack last Thursday, when comparing Mike Trout to Mantle, the Yankees legend.
"I don’t think you can compare anyone to a player like that who had a career like he did," said Darryl Strawberry on 104.5 The Team, Tuesday afternoon. "You have to be consistent. You don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know how long you’re going to be able to stay healthy and play as well as Mickey did.
"This is a different era. Let Mike Trout be Mike Trout. He’s a great player. Let him go out and play the game as well as he’s playing and see what happens. It takes a long period to be able to achieve the great things that Mickey Mantle achieved. I don’t compare players like that."
Buster Olney joins Armen and Levack every Thursday at 5:15pm EST on 104.5 The Team.
