Default Miguel Cabrera Triple Crown?

The Tigers 1B is currently atop the leaderboards in average (.333 to Trout's .327) and RsBI (130 to Josh Hamilton's 123) and just 1 behind the Ranger (Texas, not Rongey) in HRs (42 to 41).

Hawk will happily tell you who the last triple crown winner was.

Good for him. I love that he's turned into an MVP player. I'd love it even better if he missed the playoffs

He's a joy to watch at the plate, unless he's in a September pennant chase with the Chicago White Sox.

Did any of those players the Marlins got for him amount to anything?

Is it true that the Sox were on the verge of getting Cabrera before the Tigers got him?

Not really, no.

As for the second question, yes, there's a very long thread here on that. I forget what the proposed deal was.

Cameron Maybin is the best of a sorry bunch at this point.

One rumor had this package: Josh Fields, Brian N. Anderson, Gio Gonzalez, Lance Broadway or Adam Russell.

Drool! I would have given that up for Miggy to be a butcher at 3B in a heart beat!

That said, Cabrera is still one HR behind Josh Hamilton.
Not to mention Trout and the Angels are also currently on the outside looking in of the playoff picture

I hope he does it but the Sox take the division. I've always wanted to see somebody win the triple crown. I also hope to see someone hit .400 and win 30 games. Those two are much less likely.

Right, neither team will make the playoffs so it will come down to who had the better year and Trout has had the better year. He is a beast in CF and has like 50 SB.

If Cabrera wins the Triple Crown, I don't think there's any question he will, deservedly so, win the AL MVP.

You don't think there is any question? Seriously? Because most baseball guys I've seen or head have said that Trout is going to win the MVP unless the Tigers make the playoffs, regardless of the Triple Crown.

Trout has a 10+ WAR. That's Ruth and Bonds stuff. I think Cabrera is around 7 and a butcher in the field.

It's going to be close. There hasn't been a Triple Crown winner in forty five years, but Trout's also having a historic season.

If Miguel Cabrera wins the Triple Crown, no, I don't think there's even a question about it. You actually think any of the guys who vote on the MVP Award care about/know what WAR is?
