boxiebrown: Mike Trout is the MVP. The end. If you do not understand this, you need to learn more about baseball before you give your opinion.


Except he won't be. The end. You can say that the Texas Rangers are the 2011 World Champions, but they aren't.

Does anyone honestly think that Trout is going to win the MVP? If yes, were you also saying that Verlander wasn't going to win last year?

There's no equation that can do that for you. There's no getting it right. It's a vote of opinions.

How awesome would it be if we had access to facts that made choosing correctly much easier and less subjective? That would be swell.


OPS+ is not "Fact".....WAR is NOT "Fact". It is loosely based probability.

Daniels: Also, until Keith Hernandez is in the Hall of Fame, we should really stop pretending that we give a shiat about defensive stuff when handing out awards.


Well shiat. You win this round.

If we discount Miggy's RBI because he bats 3rd we also have to discount Trouts runs for batting 1st.

thomps: IAmRight: Or "our team may have been the 7th best team in the league, but we won our sh*tty division, so our player is way more clutch!" While ignoring that the other team was 6-14 before the other guy got there and that their winning percentage since his arrival would be good enough for best in the league.

you're going to use a sample size of 20 games in april to show what the angels without mike trout were capable of?


You must be new here.

No one...and I repeat NO ONE moves the goalposts more than this knucklehead and rails on people for using the same argument philosophy that he readily uses.

He is the Ultimate Internet Know It AllTM.

I like that sabrematicians have gone so far now that we are pretending being the best hitter in the league over 162 games does not matter any more.

If you're looking for people to award the MVP based on baserunning and defense, you're fooling yourself. I'm sorry. Maybe if it was close between Trout and Cabrera at the plate, but it isn't.

Perhaps we, as a nation, are putting too much stock in a stat that is black-box generated differently by every publication?

Also, until Keith Hernandez is in the Hall of Fame, we should really stop pretending that we give a shiat about defensive stuff when handing out awards.

3B is infinitely harder to play than CF.

Trout is batting 80 points lower since August 1st than he was batting on August 1st. MVPs don't do that.

Joe_diGriz: Someone, somewhere, is attempting to get DeWayne Mann's head to explode before the end of the week.


That wouldn't be too difficult. He has a very tenuous hold on reality as it is.

Dead for Tax Reasons: No, I'm not a Miggy hater because he's a drunk.

then why did you even bring it up moron


especially since the article he linked to paints miggy smalls as showing heroic restraint despite being literally doused in alcohol. he's not a drunk, he's a recovering alcoholic, asshole.
