Re: 2012: The Season That Was
I agree that the A's season was just remarkable. What a strange team to win 94 games.
I've never seen anything like Mike Trout's rookie year. He was the best player in the world in 2012, and the best is yet to come for that kid. During my brother-in-law's bachelor party, one of the guys tried all weekend to trade some rookie named Mike Trout for a catcher, and it turned into a running joke about trading Mike Trout for everything in the city. My brother-in-law finally pulled the trigger and gave the guy Jesus Montero for him. Then, magic.
Joey Votto, three home runs. That's all I need to say there.
Ten straight wins and a bald Marty will always stick with me about this year.
