Mike Trout could still win the MVP Award....but if he doesn't, I wouldn't sweat it, as I'm sure he will win multiple MVP Awards during his career if he stays healthy and keep his head on straight, which he should, as he sounds like a good kid.
I think this quote from Sports Illustrated sums it up.
If you believe in impacting games in more ways more often than anybody else, Trout is your MVP. If you believe in the greater volume of hitting stats, particularly down the stretch, Cabrera is your man.
