Trout has played 20 less games also. The reason that I would pick trout at this point is because he is a big reason as to why the teams is where they are, pujols wasnt hitting and he was helping the team get to where they are at this point. I am not saying cabrera didn't with the tigers, but if you try and compare rbi's and hrs well 20 less games and Trout hits LEADOFF. He does his job and he does it damn well. Cabrera has more rbi's but look where he hits in the line up. I thought josh hamilton was going to run away with it but his past few months has knocked him out of it. There is still 1/4 of the season left and I think that if the Angels don't make the playoffs then Cabrera is going to get it. Also im looking at the tigers playing 19 games still against the indians, twins, and royals where vs the angels playing 3 against the royals and the rest of their schedule some pretty good teams. I think if cabrera keeps going then he will win it but im hoping for trout because he got me wanting to find Angels games to watch. He got me excited about baseball again. If cabrera is playing then meh ill see him on sportscenter but trout and what he had been doing has got back to feeling like a kid again watching games. Trout at this point has impacted the league the most in my opinion.

Not many people know this, but most standard WAR formats include a "durability constituent" for positional players that dock as much as a half-point for each game they exit before the 3rd inning.

Trout wins MVP & ROY, his defense pushes him over the top.

Cabrera is a feared hitter, he is constantly intentionally walked to pitch to Fielder, and that is saying something. Just some controversy to get this thread going again

Has anyone on here heard of Josh Hamilton? 40 HR's and 119 RBI's. Yes, I am a Rangers fan, but I don't think this is a 2 player race for MVP. The Rangers will possibly be the only team out of the 3 that makes the playoffs and Hamilton is starting to hit again. All 3 are great players, but I don't think any of them have it locked up at this point.

It's a three-way race alright -- for second place. It's Trout...and then it's Cabrera-Hamilton-Cano duking it out for number two.

Then he went 0-3 today. He is batting 287 so no. Without trout the angels would not even be close to the playoffs. I pick trout. Now is the time for cabrera and he is not showing why he should be mvp, trout is.

Feels good Angels took this crucial series- both teams needed the win just as bad- but Trout put up a defensive clinic- MVP

It's September 10, 2012 and your American League MVP is still Michael Trout.

Despite Cabrera's push for the triple crown, it's September 24th and the WSJ makes an MVP case for Trout. 10.4 WAR is no joke! His lead in WAR over Cabrera/Verlander/McCutchen is the largest disparity in the top two WAR per season since 1913 (99 years!!!)
