MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred put the blame on Mike Trout for the pisspoor way the league has marketed their best player.  As if they really need his participation to shine a spotlight on him.

It must be Trout’s fault that the Angels aren’t given more primetime TV slots.  The idea that he has to push products or do a bunch of promos for the MLB proves they don’t know anything about marketing their players.

The Angels released a statement on social media backing Trout and taking a shot at Manfred for calling baseball’s best player out.

That’s a great move by the Angels.  They let Trout know that no matter who comes at him they have his back.
