and here is tonight's lineup courtesy of the Twitterverse...
Today's lineup: Trout CF, Hunter RF, Pujols 1B, Trumbo LF, Morales DH, Callaspo 3B, Kendrick 2B, Aybar SS, Hester C, C.J. Wilson P— Los Angeles Angels (@Angels) July 18, 2012
Personally, I do not see how Yu Darvish can win the Rookie of the Year award now, but I am sure a few grumbling fans of the Rangers have some convoluted run differential analysis to show why their overpaid #3 starter equivalent is superior to the best position player in baseball, but for those of us who live in that zone called reality it is an easy call.
As it stands today the only competition Trout has for MVP is teammate Mark Trumbo, who is such a nice guy he's probably scratch his name off the hardware and give it to the kid.
