It's much harder to motivate yourself when playing for a team that sucks, so Trout's performance is even more impressive.

I totally disagree with that. I think it's much harder to play under the pressure of a tight pennant race then it would be if your team is completely out of the race. If your team is 20 games out of a Playoff spot and you go 0 for 4 or you have a bad night on the mound it's not really a big deal but if your team is in the middle of a Playoff race and you go 0 for 4 or have a bad night on the mound then it's definitely a big deal.
