The Month That Could Doom Trout’s MVP Bid
I want you to take a look at a month that could be the difference between Mike Trout winning the AL MVP, and him not winning: April. How can you call yourself an MVP candidate when you batted .091/.167/.182 in the first calendar month of the season? For a guy who’s calling card has been a mix of power and speed, he has no HR, and no SB in that month. Just. Horrible.
