Yes, obviously a win in April counts exactly the same as a win in September in your final record.
But what does the win or loss in April have to do with how well or how poorly you play in the final month of the season when AT THAT TIME you are in a playoff race and THOSE GAMES AT THAT TIME are the only thing that matters as to who does or doesn't make the playoffs?
What happened in April is history, all it did was set up this final month of the season, it put them in a position to have a shot at the playoffs, and both Cabrera and Trout helped put their teams in a position to have a shot.
But in the end, when it came down to it, when the chips were all on the table and one had to perform better to make that final few feet in the race, Cabrera played better, and that is what should be the tie breaker in what was a great season for both players
Being totally serious here...if they ended up with the same stats as they have now, BUT Cabrera and the Tigers missed the playoffs AND he had a 'lesser' september (ie .280/.380/500), you would be more inclined to vote for Trouts wull body of work on the season? Or better yet, if they had the same september numbers (good or bad) and both teams made the playoffs, what would you say?
Looking for rare/low numbered Randy Moss rookies (IE E-X Credentials, Ultra Platinum Medallion, etc)
