Hypocrites drive me insane. This story today puts Angels star Mike Trout very much in the dog house. When MLB and the MLBPA were having negotiations to restart the season, Trout tweeted this out.
Trout appeared to be vocal about restarting the season. It was clear by this Tweet that the Angels outfielder very much wanted to play baseball this season. Seems simple enough, right?
Okay, let’s fast forward a bit. MLB and the MLBPA agree on terms to hold a 60 game season. Players are ready to go and are reporting to camps. BUT WAIT A MINUTE! Mike Trout now is “uncomfortable” about playing. Bro… what?
“Honestly, I still don’t feel that comfortable,” he said. “It’s going to be tough. I don’t want to test positive. I don’t want to bring it back to my wife. If I test positive and we have the baby, I have to be there. That’s my first child. If I or Jess don’t see the baby for 14 days, we’re going to be upset.
“It’s a tough situation we’re in. I have to play it by ear. You don’t know what is going to happen with the number of positive tests,” he said.
The coronavirus has broken a lot of people’s brains. Masks or no masks? Social distancing or living life normally? When it comes to Mike Trout, his brain is fried. This is someone that lives in la la land. He’s one of those guys that when the light turns yellow, he decides to go and then stops in the middle of the intersection. Is there anything worse than that guy?
Everything now makes me sense. No wonder why he signed a long term deal with the Angels despite the fact that they will never win with him on the roster due to terrible surrounding talent. I no longer feel bad for him playing for a terrible team. Hey, Mike Trout. We’re not asking for much. Just make up your damn mind.
