Mike Trout is basically Michael Jordan in the 1990s. You can justify making him the MVP every year, but it gets boring, I guess. Before Trout, no baseball player had ever finished within the top two in MVP voting in 6 of 7 seasons, per Elias. Should've probably won his first Gold Glove this year, too.
