    It was still a monster season for him. And the MVP is definitely still in play for him.

    Mike Trout is a part of yet another record at still a young age. Trout only the second MLB player to win three MVP's by his year 27 season. The other was the great Stan Musial. He also has four second place finishes.
    I was watching the announcement and before he won they asked him about his season being shortened by his foot injury. He said he played with the injury for a month, before he had to have surgery. Seems like a pretty tough/courageous young man as well.

    I did not know Trout played through that injury. Stan Musial was another universally loved player like Trout.

    In all my years of watching sports Mike Trout has to be one of the nicest stars I have ever witnessed.

    The season was tainted for me because he missed roughly the last month. I couldn't relax after that. But after signing that big long contract he made Angels fans proud and I can't wait for next season. Trout has had minor injury setbacks the past few years and I hope those days are behind him.

    I believe the Angels are zeroing in on getting P Gerrit Cole.

    Fun Fact:

    Mike Trout and former Angel's All-Star Tim Salmon are the only players to play for same organization, win ROY and be named after a fish.
