    That's a very interesting way of putting it but even then I think Miggy wins it...

    • Yeah, fully expected Miggy to win it

      It's just discouraging how lopsided it was. I was hoping that the voters were starting to adapt and accept some of the new ways to evaluate a players worth, but it seems it's still status quo with a lot of them

      and some idiot from Cleveland had Trout 3rd lol

        Yeah, for some insane reason it sounds like some of these people voted for Miggy since his team made the playoffs

        I honestly can't see why this is even considered when you take into account that the Angels had a better record than the Detroit. It's just silly IMO

        Trout shouldn't be penalized because 2 other teams in his division won 93+ games

          Forget that. If Josh Hamilton hits 2 more homers, then Trout wins. How ridiculous is that?

          Also POSEY!!!!!!!!!
          The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

          • Guys, I don't think that would have been the case. I think Miggy would win even if he just barely missed out on the Triple Crown, because his team won their division and made the playoffs

            the Triple Crown was just the icing on the cake for voters who were leaning his way in the first place

            anyway, Miggy is one of the best players in baseball, so it's good to see him finally get that MVP award under his belt...just hate that it had to come at the expense of Mike Trout

            • Just out of curiosity, are Ichiro Suzuki and Ricky Henderson the only leadoff hitters that won MVP?

                Did Pedroia leadoff his year? He may have still hit 2.

                • Pretty sure Pedroia hit second.

                  • Pedroia has hit 2nd pretty much his entire career with short stints at leadoff and 3rd

                    • I feel like what Miguel Cabrera did this season has been completely under sold. He accomplished something nobody has done in decades and simply got a little golf clap and pat on the back.

                        ... and an MVP award. What more do you expect him to get for having the 2nd best season in the AL?

                            Maury Willis and Pete Rose too. 4 lead off hitters that won MVP so far I have found.

                            • Did Fred Lynn bat leadoff?
