Bryce Harper is getting all the love from the national media, but the best rookie in baseball is Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels—hands down.

Trout's presence has made a difference in Anaheim. The Angels were in a funk when they called Trout up, and now they're sitting just three games behind the once-unbeatable Texas Rangers.
So it's time, my friends. This is the week Trout finally gets some American League MVP love. He's waited long enough.
