American League Wins ASG, Will Have Home Field In World Series Loss To Giants
The American League won the MLB All-Star Game 6-3 on Tuesday night and Mike Trout was named the Most Valuable Player of the game. The results are eerily similar to last year's game that featured the same MVP and a final score of 5-3 in favor of the AL.
Trout, who was AL Rookie of the Year in 2012 and the MVP of the American League in 2014, is the first player in the history of the game to win back-to-back All-Star Game MVPs. That would be really exciting if it weren't for the fact that the Angels keep blowing it in the playoffs so he keeps just securing the home field for another team to lose on.
The American League has now won ten of the last thirteen All-Star games, which is all just pretense considering the fact that the San Francisco Giants of the National League have won three of the last six World Series Titles. That includes just last year when they won on the road in Kansas City.
Maybe the new rule should be that whichever team makes it to the World Series for the American League gets to have Mike Trout. That would be the real advantage.
