Angels outfielder Torii Hunter posted this picture on Twitter after Sunday's Angels-Rangers doubleheader in Arlington of Mike Trout, the presumptive AL Rookie of the Year, potential AL MVP, and possibly the best baseball player living on Earth...dressed as a stereotypical baby, complete with bonnet, diaper, stuffed animal...and sneakers with red socks, of course.
Rookie hazing is the best.

Mike Trout should be the Rookie of the Year in a complete runaway. No one is even close. Best living baseball player on Earth? Well, he might be in the top 20: Miguel Cabrera, Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Justin Verlander. Also, I think Willie Mays is still alive, so no, at this time, Mike Trout is in a small group of players vying for the title of "Second Best Baseball Player on Earth". No disrespect to anyone, and especially none to Mike Trout, but this accolade might be a bit premature. Mike Trout has all the tools, and might well one day be the best, but for now, he will have to "settle" for being in the top 20 living Baseball Players on Earth.
