Mike Trout, MVP

Mike Trout will win the AL Rookie of the Year. The only question will be where the 20-year-old Trout’s season ranks with the greatest rookie seasons of all time.

He also deserves the league MVP.

When Trout was called up on April 28, the Angels were in last place, standing at 6 wins and 14 losses, and riding a 5-game losing streak. Since then, the Trout-led Angels are 51-33 and leading the wildcard race.

Trout himself? Leading the league in batting at .353, leading the league in stolen bases with 31 (and caught only 3 times), second in OPS (Slugging Average plus On Base Average). And when you factor in his hard-to-hit-in home park and look at his road numbers, he leads everyone—by a lot.

And he plays Centerfield.

Trout is clearly the best player in the league, and has spearheaded the Angels to a playoff run.

Trout deserves the MVP.

Not bad for a rookie who cannot legally drink.
