Question of the Day, 6/20 …
Angels’ MVP so far — Mark Trumbo or Mike Trout? — @markscelfo
That’s a tough one, but if I have to pick one, I’ll go with Trout. No disrespect to what Trumbo has done, but he’d probably tell you the same. The root of the Angels’ turnaround points almost directly to Trout’s April 28 call-up. He’s the guy who sets the table, who does it all on the field and who provided this team with the spark they so-desperately needed. As he goes, so does the offense. You saw it on Tuesday night. Trout went 3-for-25 over his previous six games, and the Angels totaled 11 runs in that span. Then he goes 4-for-4 and the Angels score 12. It’s hardly a coincidence.
Both deserve to be in the All-Star Game, though.
