When I said Cabrera would be in contention, I meant with respect to the fact that he's in the group of people at the top of the list who aren't so far off the lead that they can't garner votes.

I do still think Trout should've won for all the reasons you stated, but while Cabrera might have had multiple factors working against him this isn't a travesty to the level of, say, Maury Wills over Willie Mays or Juan Gonzalez over Alex Rodriguez. Or even (and I know it's going to sound like blasphemy to say it) Justin Morneau over Derek Jeter or David Ortiz.
