Completely Ridiculous- Jered Weaver & Mike Trout

It must be fun to be a Los Angeles Angels fan right now. You have all-world first baseman Albert Pujols, just acquired Zack Greinke for the stretch run, and have the best pitcher and player currently in baseball on your favorite team in the form of Jered Weaver and Mike Trout.

Jered Weaver is now 15-1 on the season.  That's a pretty damn good winning percentage.  His awesomeness doesn't stop there, he also has a 2.13 ERA and 0.92 WHIP.  Imagine the contract he would have signed this offseason had he waited to hit free agency.  His wins, ERA, and WHIP all lead Major League Baseball.  Suffice to say, he's the leading candidate for the AL Cy Young award.

Then there's rookie 21 year old rookie Mike Trout.  He's no normal rookie struggling to find his niche.  Oh no, he's the freakin' man!  He's batting .348/1.009, with 86 R, 21 DBL, 5 TRPL, 19 HR, 59 RBI, and 36 SB in only 87 G...and he plays Gold Glove worthy defense.  Not only is he the hands-down Rookie of the Year, he's likely the AL MVP if the Halos make the playoffs (which they should).
