Cabrera will most likely make history tonight against the Royals.
-Hamilton has to face one of the toughest pitchers in baseball right now (Griffin) who has only given up 10 HRs all year (three of them against the Tigers). Not to mention he would have to hit 2.
-It's pretty much assumed he's won the RBI title.
-Batting Average will most likely be won as well since 1 hit by Cabrera would nearly make it impossible for anyone to catch him. He will most likely get 2-4 at bats tonight and would have to go 0-4 while Trout would have to hit 4-4 to catch him. If Cabby hits 1 for 3, Trout would need 6 for 6 to catch him. So it's likely that one hit or one out by Trout all but guarantees the Batting Average title.
(ESPN is going to Air every at bat from him.)
The Crazy thing is that he still might not win the MVP!
Cabrera: 1st Triple Crown since '67, Playoff team, huge lead in OPS, SLG, and is 6th among 3rd baseman in Fielding percentage
Trout: Tied for 34th in assists among CF, did not make the playoffs, 9th in Fielding percentage among CF.
How is this not already handed to Cabrera and why is there even a debate... it's baffling.
Trout has four edges: stolen bases, runs, OBP, and WAR (which is the the most subjective Stat ever invented in baseball).
Not to mention Cabrera appeared in 161 of 162 games and trout only appeared in 139.
GO CABBY!! GO TIGERS!!!
MVP! MVP! MVP!
