Watching the Angels and Nationals play today will be equal to my tearing open a retail pack of baseball cards as a 12-year-old.
Last night I wrote a piece on Bryce Harper. In that story, I said I would be glued to my television screen when Harper makes his Major League Debut versus the high flying Los Angeles Dodgers.
When I first heard Harper was coming to the show, I could not help but feel for Mike Trout, who still had not gotten the call.
I could see Trout sitting at his locker in Salt Lake and screaming to the heavens, “What more must I do to get the call?”
To this Trout is right. He is hitting .403 with 31 hits and an OPS of 1.091 through 20 games with the Bees.
Apparently, the baseball gods heard Trout’s question and were like, “yeah, what the heck are the Angels thinking?”
