WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- If the baseball season ended today, 20-year-old Angels outfielder Mike Trout would more than likely be American League MVP. He's batting .355 with 13 home runs, 44 RBI's and 30 stolen bases.
Let's repeat this again for all the not-so sharp people out there: Mike Trout -- not Albert Pujols -- more than likely will win the AL MVP.
On Wednesday, Trout called into the esteemed Dan Patrick show to talk about baseball and life in the majors at such a young age. Obviously, Bryce Harper came up. Read the exchange below, or listen to the audio here at around the nine minute mark.
DP: How often are you compared to Bryce Harper, and how do you feel about it?
Trout: Everyday, I'm compared to him.
DP: Got a problem with it?
Trout: No, no, no. It's all good stuff. There's always some negatives. It's two young kids chasing their dream. I shoot him a text every once in awhile if he has a good game -- I think he had an RBI triple last night, I [saw] on ESPN. We're both just out there having fun, just like everybody else.
DP: Has he ever said to you, that's a clown question, bro?
Trout: No [laughs] but after that I sent him some texts and stuff messing with him.
