Trout is currently leading the AL in WAR once again currently at 6.7
Last yr Trout came in 2nd in mvp voting despite his league leading 10.0 WAR. The award went to triple crown winner Miguel Cabrera who was third in the AL with a war of 6.8. Cabrera's team also made the playoffs, though the Angels had a better record than the Tigers.
This yr Cabrera is leading the AL in avg, tied for the lead in RBI's w/ Davis, and 2nd to Davis in HR.
Assuming the Tigers and Orioles both stay in the playoff hunt and Cabrera/Davis split the triple crown categories, does Trout have a shot at the MVP? will leading the league in WAR be more valued this season? will the Angels' poor season turn off voters?
