Looking at the stats, I'm substantially
less impressed with that OF than you are:

OPS+
Abreu: 104
Trout: 88 (obviously he is a stud prospect and very well could be big league ready now. You can't put too much stock in his past stats)
Hunter: 115
Bourjos: 115
Wells: 83

WAR
Abreu: 1.3
Trout: .9
Hunter: 2.2
Bourjos: 5.0
Wells: -.3

So you have Abreu and Hunter who are both aging and are fairly average. You have Wells who is below replacement level. Trout is a top prospect, but he is still only 20 and you can't be sure what he will bring. Bourjos is also a nice prospect, but he is still a prospect. I don't see anything stacked about that.
