Of course, the Angels’ surge this season has featured iconic young talent, Mike Trout.
“I’d compare him more to Willie Mays,” said Spencer. “He played every inning like it mattered, and that’s how Trout plays. Even more than unbelievable talent, it’s his attitude and demeanor that makes him unbelievable.”
Staying within the AL East, Neyer pointed out the glaring gap in the Orioles’ roster—one that many speculate they might trade for to find a solution.
“The Orioles are like every other team in the division–they’re flawed. Not fatally, because of the division they’re in, but they need an ace [pitcher] badly.”
Sonny Gray struck out eight to win his fifth consecutive decision, and the Oakland Athletics pounded the Baltimore Orioles 10-2 on Sunday.

Manny Machado silenced the boos in Oakland with one swing. Josh Donaldson ignited the roars with another.
