Exactly but here goes freebird going straight to race rather than wanting MLB to do a better job at promoting there stars simple and plain in the 90's baseball had so many superstars who were recognizable now i wouldn't know Trout if he passed by me and thats a problem. 

You must not watch a lot of TV or go to the store that often as I've seen both on multiple products and commercials. Maybe you don't get the same stuff in your market. I know for a fact that Trout doesn't care for a lot of endorsements and focuses on playing baseball and hunting and fishing and his new wife. Harper seems to be everywhere.

Right now I don't think there is a face of baseball. Maybe a face of a region but not of all baseball.

The idea that the Angels fanbase doesn't care about its team is ridiculous. The team drew an average of 37,236 fans per game last season, 3,016,142 in total. That is better than every MLB club except the Dodgers, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Giants, Cubs, and Yankees.

The big issue for MLB is that it's done a good job of promoting teams and the MLB brand itself, but has fallen down badly when it comes to pushing individual players regardless of teams or markets.

I rarely follow baseball outside of my home teams (Baltimore Orioles, Washington Nationals) but I watched a bit of the SF Giants vs NY Mets game tonight on ESPN. I had never heard of Judge before tonight but they spent nearly an entire inning talking about him and his size. They were pushing for him to enter the home run contest and were predicting that he would win it all. They claimed he would be a much better home run hitter than Giancarlo Stanton.

Exit velocity is the new rage among sabermetricians, and Judge and Stanton are basically the 2 players who have exit velocity in a different stratosphere than everyone else in baseball. It's basically the speed of the ball right after it's hit. In short, he launches it a fucking mile and it goes there fast.

I got that issue a few days ago, but not sure if that's a national cover. Since SI has gone with mostly regional covers, the SI cover curse is dead.

I could give a shit less whether or not Madison Ave views Mike Trout as the face of baseball. He is easily the best player in the game at the moment. All apologies to Harper who is a great talent as well.
The one concern with Trout is that he keeps getting bigger.  We are starting to see that he may be susceptible to nagging injuries.

Can't wait for him to come back to Philly after his contract with the Angels is up. Also, Aaron Altherr of the Phillies is having a similar season as Judge. in 84 AB's, he has 8 HR 22 RBI's and hitting .333. Altherr has a better OPS then Judge and better OBP. Judge has a slight lead in Slugging.

Altherr is a lifetime .240 hitter and that is with his hot start numbers. Sure he is having a career year but he will peter out with more playing time. He'll end up with a nice .280 25hr year.

.@TheJudge44 received MVP chants last night.

While Aaron Judge's 435-foot, two-run home run Monday night wasn't as breathtaking as the near-500-footer from the day before, it still brought spectators to their feet.

The New York Yankees rookie smoked his MLB-leading 22nd home run in the top of the eighth inning off Los Angeles Angels reliever Bud Norris. MVP chants followed. On the road. On the opposite coast from the home confines of Yankee Stadium.

Many fans clad in Yankees gear were on hand to lend their support to Judge, who was born and raised in California. With the 25-year-old sporting a .347/.453/.728 slash line, perhaps the MVP chants aren't out of line, even if they may be a tad premature.

Aaron Judge slugged his way into the New York Yankees' record books Wednesday afternoon in the Bronx, smashing a two-run bomb off Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Marco Estrada for his 29th home run of the season, which ties Joe DiMaggio's franchise record for long balls by a rookie.

Judge, who's set to participate in next week's Home Run Derby, needed just 81 games to smack his 29th round-tripper, a towering, fourth-inning blast to right-center. In 1936, his first season with the Yankees, DiMaggio didn't go deep for the 29th time until Sept. 13, in his 128th game of the campaign.

Still a few days shy of the season's unofficial halfway mark, Judge sits 20 home runs short of the MLB rookie record for homers set in 1987 by Mark McGwire, who went deep 49 times in his first full season with the Oakland Athletics.
