Early All Star Game voting: Mike Trout, and a whole bunch of Royals (again)

Man, time flies when you're having some fun, but also a lot of headaches. I'm referring, of course, to the 2016 season; it seems like yesterday that we were preparing for Spring Training, looking over this team and getting worried, or putting on our best hype man faces, counting the days until the first pitch was thrown. Just like that, we're in June, and that means we are at that...

Bryce Harper Or Mike Trout? Looking At Top MLB Players To Start Franchise With

The Boston Red Sox probably didn’t know it at the time, but when they signed David Ortiz in 2003, they signed a franchise player. The Ortiz signing didn’t come with much fanfare, and the designated hitter didn’t even start at the beginning of his career with Boston. Fast forward 13 years, though, and Ortiz is the face of the Red Sox franchise, and he’s still one of the most...

Mike Trout at 40

After watching anything for a prolonged period of time, it is inevitable that that thing, no matter how incredible, will become normalized and lose some of its luster. Our brains can be a bummer that way. Given that, it’s important to take a step back from time to time with the point of re-instilling some of that initial sense of wonder that can get lost along the way. Enter...

Diagnosing the Angels: Mike Trout Can’t Do It All

Imagine having the best baseball player in the league and it mattering very little. That’s largely been the case for the Los Angeles Angels since 2012 when Mike Trout made his debut. In that time, he’s taken home the Rookie of the Year and was named the AL’s Most Valuable Player. He’s finished runner-up for the latter three times, and if Manny Machado has anything to say...

Angels GM says team has not discussed trading Mike Trout

No, folks, Mike Trout is not going to be traded any time soon. With the Los Angeles Angels off to an 18-22 start and looking nothing like a contender, some outsiders raised the question of whether the team would entertain trading Trout for a huge prospect haul to allow them to rebuild. Perhaps, they reason, the Angels would be willing to move their star center fielder. So, Angels...

Mike Trout runs over first base umpire

It’s Mike Trout’s world, and the rest of the players, coaches and umpires in Thursday’s Cardinals-Angels game were just living in it. Unfortunately, not everyone involved was aware of this, and the first base umpire got in Trout’s way after the Angels star ran through first base, and it didn’t end well for him. Some players would have tried to evade the ump and get out...

Mike Trout, Angels scoff at trade: You don't move superstars

The Internet got a crazy idea about trading Mike Trout, but, spoiler alert, it’s not going to happen. First of all, let’s get one thing straight. It wouldn’t be a terrible idea for the Los Angeles Angels to trade their star center fielder, as ESPN and FanGraphs suggested. Their rotation is keeping Dr. James Andrews in business, their payroll is funding aging players, their...
