Wanna see Mike Trout hit a spring training grand slam? Of course you do.

Feb 28, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT

The return of baseball also means the return of Mike Trout, two-time defending AL Most Valu — ahem — two-time runner-up for the AL Most Valuable Player award. Trout appears to be in top form already, as he took James McDonald deep to left field for a grand slam in the fourth inning of this afternoon’s game against the Cubs.

Thoughts on the above clip: such bat speed; many loud.

Trout also had an RBI single in the second inning, finishing the day 2-for-3 with five runs batted in as the Angels stomped the Cubs 15-3.

Could Trout win his third consecutive first MVP award in 2014?

    He cured my leprosy. Then he hit a double and stole third.

    Of course I do.

      You’re missing out then. This kid is something special.

      What’s the point of liking baseball?

      • doctorofsmuganomics - Mar 1, 2014 at 12:02 PM

        Better than football.

        Trout would have been a damn fine football player, too.

    Trout is awesome

    That’s a whiplash moment.

    Born to play baseball…

    Why don’t they teach that swing to every youth baseball player? I know not everyone is that strong and quick, but seems to be the most efficient swing there is, eh?

    Get over it and continue the slurpfest elsewhere. Cabrera was and is MVP both years fair and square. The numbers were incredible and he was having a PSE Bonds season before the injury in late August otherwise we’d be talking about the greatest offensive season of all time

      Make up your mind, dude, should we get over it or continue the slurpfest elsewhere? Could you suggest some suitable alternative locations for future slurpfests? Don’t answer if you’re going to say something mean.

        Slurpfest.

    And yet, he’s still inferior to Miguel Cabrera until proving otherwise. Sabermetrics are the cancer that is killing baseball, go cry me a river turbo-nerds.
