There are several different adjectives that one could use to describe the season so far for the Los Angeles Angels, almost none of which are appropriate for anyone under the age of 16. It's been a rough start to the 2013 campaign for the Halos, with almost no exceptions.
Even Mike Trout, who went from rookie to legend in the span of only a few months in 2012, has had his struggles this season. Under the microscope after winning American League Rookie of the Year, and nearly (probably should have) taking home the Most Valuable Player award, Trout got off to the sophomore slump that many feared he would.
Good thing it's a 162-game season. It's almost impossible to judge anything off of what happens in April. In Major League Baseball, what happens in April, tends to stay in April. Just ask Chris Shelton. In recent weeks, the Angels have started to look like a real life baseball team. And it's no coincidence that Mike Trout is beginning to round into form over that same span as well.
Trout's April was certainly not what he was hoping for, nor was it anywhere near what the Angels were expecting, having come into the season as heavy favorites in the American League West. The Angels won just eight games in April, while Trout's numbers were largely unimpressive.no comments
