They knew it was coming. Angels outfielder Mike Trout and Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper have been compared to each other for years: Same approximate height, weight, age.

Mike Trout and his Los Angeles Angels teammates come to Washington for a three-game series at Nationals Park, the first time that Trout and Harper will be on the field as Major League Baseball competitors.
Harper, for his part, said that while he doesn't try to see how he matches up with Trout, he understands why others will.
"If they like him, they like him. If they like me, they like me. If they like both of us, then they know the game," Harper said. "And if they don't, then they're crazy."
