Another example of the injustice of cover athletes. How has Trout, like Harper not made a cover yet? Trout is arguably the most talented young player in all of Major League Baseball. He has placed himself on everyone’s short list for best player in the game and in a yawn moment is once again putting up MVP caliber numbers. The 2012 Rookie of the Year has also finished second in the AL MVP voting twice to Miguel Cabrera before finally winning the award in 2014. It is rare air that most of the globe is taking for granted. Early in the year but Trout is on pace to break the WAR record set by Babe Ruth, think about that for a minute. For many it seems boring but what Trout is doing is frankly unheard of and the California import deserves a cover. It is honestly shocking he has not graced the cover already.
