I definitely don't think a 0.3-point differential between three guys is a debate-ender, but when I see WAR stats that look like this...

1. Trout (LAA) 9.3
2. Cano (NYY) 6.2
3. Verlander (DET) 6.0
4. Cabrera (DET) 5.9

...and someone tries to tell me that Miguel Cabrera is hands-down the American League MVP, I have to chuckle a little bit.

But please don't get me started on the AL MVP front
