Trout or Cabrera?

After reading an excellent article by Joe Posnaski making the case that Mike Trout deserves the AL MVP, I thought it would be fun to see what you guys thought.  Make your case below, or just throw out your ideas on the subject…

I’m not voting on a question for that “other” league. You know, the one with all the biggest payrolls that has lost 3 straight World Series and All-Star games. Now, with the Astros changing leagues the NL can start winning the inter-league play as well.

Truthfully, I was so disheartened by the Rockies season I just didn’t pay attention to what was going on with other teams like I normally would have.

MVP, ROY, and Gold Gloves are all politics and voted based on your loyalty. Tulo clearly was ROY over Braun cuz Tulo led the Rockies to the postseason and had a gold glove caliber defense while Braun made a ton of errors at 3B and the Brewers were nowhere near the postseason.

The Angels dug themselves too deep of a hole before Trout arrived on the scene to rally back into the postseason dance.

Voted for Trout hands down; the Angels were floundering until Trout burst on the scene. Cabrerra and Tigers are same old things. I don’t look at stats 100%; I look at how they influenced the team for the better.

I don’t have a problem with either one but…the Angels couldn’t make the playoffs with him in the lineup…the Tigs couldn’t have made the playoffs w/o Cabrera. All the awards (Players’ choice, ESPY’s, Rolaids, etc…) should be consolidated into an MLB only group of awards. Best Rookie overall (NL,AL combined) Best Rookie pitcher and position player Best pitcher overall Best pitcher in league Most valuable player each league Best performance by a player overall (combined leagues, Player of the Year)… Read more »

Body of work: Cabrera.

Remember Joe Charboneau.
