The September 19th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Mike Trout talks MVP and WAR, Grant Green won't play 3B this season and much more…
The Monkey Says: He basically punts on it and gives a media-friendly cliched answer, but he seems to be aware of the basic tenets of his game that make him an MVP caliber player and how it differentiates him from typical MVP winners.
The Monkey Says: Sure, they have no problem throwing Mark Trumbo their with almost no prep time, but they won't give Green a shot. I guess it makes sense that they want him focusing on second base since they will likely trade Howie Kendrick this off-season, but since Green will be riding the pine the rest of the way because Howie is still around what is the harm in letting him screw around at the hot corner?

The Monkey Says: Close, but it needs more Josh Hamilton striking out.
The Story: Luis Jimenez is likely done for the season.
