Will Leitch, writing in New York Magazine, tells the story of one Mike Trout, unquestionably the greatest baseball player of all time and now nobody knows his name.
There was a time that being the best baseball player made you one of the most famous human beings on the planet. That time is not now.
Trout just earned the largest contract in professional sports history and I bet most of you probably have never watched him play more than a half a dozen times.
Even though Albert Pujols burned me by taking the money and moving to the Anaheim Angels many moons ago, maybe I should call the Angels my American League team just to root for an underdog of a club with the greatest baseball player of all time manning the outfield.
