By Jonathan Northrop, Columnist - A Bittersweet MVPIt happens sometimes: A great player misses out on an MVP award (or, in this case, two) for whatever reason, and then has an inferior campaign the following year and wins it. A classic case was Alex Rodriguez in 2003; in the previous year he was by far the best player in the AL but lost out to Miguel Tejada. In 2003...

Los Angeles Angels: Mike Trout the obvious choice for MVP

Many would argue that he, and not Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera deserved to win the Most Valuable Player award each of the last two years. The good news is that this year, Trout’s time has finally come. At age 23, Trout has once again delivered an incredible...

Mike Trout made a ridiculous leaping catch because of course he did

The Angels had nothing to play for on Friday night, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t giving it their all out ther. Mike Trout most definitely wasn’t mailing it in when he made this ridiculous running, leaping catch: That’s levitation, Holmes. Trout’s defensive highlights have been a bit sparse this year for whatever reason so we can overlook the fact that he didn’t...

WATCH: Mike Trout robs Kendrys Morales of extra bases

What else can we really say about the defense of Mike Trout aside from “holy crap”? This twisting, leaping catch in the eighth inning of Friday’s Angels-Mariners game at Safeco Field robbed Kendrys Morales of extra bases. However, it wouldn’t end up matter too much – Seattle still hung on to win 4-3 and keep their minuscule playoff hopes intact. The post Mike Trout made...

Mike Trout: Thrice an AL MVP bridesmaid?

Mike Trout is the best all-around player in Major League Baseball. There are decent arguments he should have won the American League MVP during his first two full big league seasons, which is remarkable, and he’s probably the front-runner in 2014. But my vote this season goes to Victor Martinez. When he wasn’t being chirped at by Chris Sale Wednesday afternoon, Detroit’s first...
