Keep on cutting your lines off just above where Elsbury was last year while cutting them just below where Elsbury exceeded him last year. That's a pretty solid way to make an 'historical' argument out of a season that was most certainly not without precedent.
Trout's 2012: .422 wOBA, 175 wRC+,
Ellsbury's 2011: .402 wOBA, 150 wRC+
Bit of a difference there offensively, it seems. A major one.
