However, the real crime will be that Cabrerra will win the MVP if the Angels dont make the playoffs and DET does.
Its just pathetic, but Scoscia should be fired (and then hung) if this happens.
Better overall player?
I think Mike Trout has a great future....but look at Miguel Cabrera's resume to this point and then try telling me Trout is a better overall player in almost every way.
Trout has done it for 89 games, Miguel Cabrera has done it for 10 years.
Also....Trout hasn't missed 1/3 of the season.
He was called up on April 28th. He probably missed 15 to 20 games total.
Kid is a special talent, but it doesn't negate the fact that Miguel Cabrera is having an awesome year as well.
