Google preemptively named Angels' Mike Trout 2014 AL MVP

Thursday August 14th, 2014

A Google search for "2014 AL MVP" turns up Los Angeles Angels slugger Mike Trout thanks to the search engine's ability to see into the future.

The glitch has since been fixed and For The Win reports that it was likely a function of the web browser confusing his 2014 All-Star Game MVP with the year end award.

Or maybe the search behemoth just used a little bit of its computing power to take a peek at Trout's impressive numbers so far this year and just made an educated guess.
