The Baseball Writers Association doesn’t even need to vote for the 2014 American League MVP award because according to Google, Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout has already won.
A quick query on Thursday revealed that the popular search engine already considers Trout as the winner.

Trout has finished second in the AL MVP voting over the last two seasons, losing twice to Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera.
He’s currently the favorite in 2014. The 23-year-old superstar is hitting .294 with 27 home runs, 85 RBIs and a .382 on-base percentage. Trout ranks in the top 10 of the AL in runs, doubles, triples, home runs, RBIs, hits, on-base percentage and WAR. He’s also among the best defensive outfielders in the league.
Google may have gotten ahead of itself by crowning Trout, but it would be a huge shock if he didn’t win the award when the BBWAA voting results are announced in November.
