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.

As long as he's playing golf on October 4th,



Cabrera's a great hitter.I knew that 9 years when he was a rookie with the Marlins.This is no surprise to me.He can have the Triple Crown as long as the Sox go to the playoffs.

What i heard was that the players all think Cabrera should be mvp and the front office personnel think that Trout should win .. of course they won't be voting

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?

We are seriously debating whether a guy who wins the triple crown should be the MVP?

Uh, there's no possible way you could have read through the links provided and felt it endorsed your position unanimously, right?

It's very simple. If Cabrera wins the Triple Crown, he will win the MVP Award. If he doesn't, Trout will will win. I'm struggling to see what of that is unclear.

Many baseball people are still of the belief Trout should win regardless.

Although i see the argument - 15 hrs difference between the 2 will greatly outweigh 50 SB and defense. Maybe not fair, but true. Especially with the triple crown.

I'm sorry, but considering when the last time someone won the Triple Crown was, if Cabrera wins it he should get the MVP. Hell, even if he doesn't win the Triple Crown he should win the MVP.

Trout is the MVP at this point because he's had the best season, and I honestly don't think it's that close (taking nothing away from Cabrera).

I believe Larrupin' Lou finished 4th or 5th during a triple crown year, and Ted Williams had a couple triple crown seasons where he did not win the MVP. I understand it's a different era and it's been a long time, but M-Cab cashing in on timely injuries to Dunn and Hamilton does not mean he should vault Trout, who has truly had a historically great season.
