DeWayne Mann: There has never been a 45 gap between triple crowns (so no precedent there)


Right. That's why I cited the home run chases as precedent. The precedent doesn't need to be identical to be persuasive, it just has to be analogous.

DeWayne Mann: and 40% of eligible triple crown winners DIDN'T win the MVP.


So doesn't that mean 60% of them did? And Robinson won the MVP after a 10 year gap, which was the longest since Ty Cobb.

DeWayne Mann: And it's not like Trout isn't setting history, either.


75% of the players who had 40 stolen base, 40 home run seasons did not win the MVP.

DeWayne Mann: If I wasn't boycotting the thread, I'd explicitly point out the 1934 AL MVP voting.


for someone boycotting this thread, you are doing quite a bad job of it.

IAmRight: If Derek Jeter had Mike Trout's stat line, Miguel Cabrera wouldn't even be in the MVP discussion, either. What's your point? Oh, you don't have one.



Thread should have been over here.

If Derek Jeter won the triple crown year with Miguel Cabrera's stat line he would probably test positive for every steroid known to man.

Yeah. I was gonna come in here and ask who that says more about: Cabrera, Trout, or Jeter?

That said, Cabrera should win the MVP. Talk all you want about WAR. It's the goddamn Triple Crown. This shiat doesn't happen every goddamn year.

And he's doing it without PEDs either. You would think baseball would be all over this, to try and wash the bad taste of the late 90's/early 00's out of everyone's mouth.

Miguel Cabrera is going to win the Triple Crown and yet Mike Trout is still in the running for MVP. There's something fishy about that.
