Somewhere in the Stadium executive suites on Sunday, Yankee scouting director Damon Oppenheimer was surely cringing, if not covering his eyes. Angels rookie sensation Mike Trout was putting on another show, validating his status as the front-runner for American League MVP.

The kid tormented the Yankees all weekend, going 7-for-14 with three doubles and four stolen bases. And if Curtis Granderson hadn't made a spectacular catch at the center-field wall to rob him, Trout may have added an inside-the-park home run to his already-stunning portfolio.

You have a feeling these teams are going to meet again in October, after a rollicking series over the weekend in which the Yankees won two tight games before losing, 10-8, on Sunday.
