    Yeah, I don't understand how someone can be labeled as a sabr guy that hates the triple crown just because he makes an argument that Trout should win a very close MVP race. Cabrera's having a great year and Trout is having a great year.

    Cabrera deserves the award, the last two months of the year Cabrera was on fire while Trout started to come down to earth a bit. The triple crown and taking his team to the playoffs is the icing on the cake.

    Note: I don't think taking your team to the playoffs is always necessary, but in a race this close it should put one candidate over the top.

Vote for whoever you want for the AL MVP, but at least give Cabrera credit for a monster offensive season.
    Why do declining offensive numbers make a Triple Crown more impressive? No matter what the offensive environment is, someone still has to lead the league in BA, HRs and RBIs.

    The Angels actually won more games than the Tigers. I have a tough time giving Cabrera extra credit for how bad his division is.
