end of story. that cant be taken away. and using sabermetrics doesnt take that away from him because that is not the only thing ppl use to vote for mvps.
i dont think you guys realize how crazy it is to lead your team in every offensive category except obp, and to also come clutch in key moments especially during the last few weeks of the season when it looked like the tigers were out of contention.
i get it, you guys love advanced stats, and that trout had a phenomenal season, and he should be duly rewarded, trust me i respect that, but im sorry, cabrera lead that team in rbis, hrs, batting average, slugging.
if that means nothing to you than obv this discussion is pointless.
