MLB.com presents and article on the All Star Game, and despite neither 'star' rookie making the team (because write-in candidates never do well) the league has decided that only East Coast wonderboy, Bryce Harper, deserves a shout-out. I thought it was a certain CT-based organization that had this bias, not the league itself. The quote is:
Is it too early for Bryce Harper? The Nationals' rookie outfielder has created a lot of buzz and speculation in his relatively short MLB service time. If he is not announced as a starter or reserve, who knows, he could show up on your Final Ballot menu.
So, where is Trout? He who leads Harper in all categories, both batting and fielding, and is legimately in the MVP conversation (not only 'should be an All Star'). Hoping Ron Washington does the right thing here and name 5 Angels to the team, Weaver, Wilson, Frieri, Trout and Trumbo. Anything less would be a travesty!!!!
