Mike Trout robs Yoenis Cespedes of a hit

Dear Mike Trout,

Please stop making tremendous defensive plays. You're destroying everyone with your bat, and your defense is just as impeccable. Yoenis Cespedes is having a damn fine rookie year, and you just had to go ahead and rob him of a hit on Tuesday night in Anaheim, in addition to blowing him out of the water in the AL Rookie of the Year race.

XOXO,
The American League

On an aside, we all have to admit that this play was incredible, and has become par for the course for Trout. The Angels would still fall 6-5 to the A's last night despite Trout's stellar defense and offense (3/4 with a run scored and a walk).
