The OBP was virtually identical for the two. Of course he scored more runs, he was a leadoff hitter (and runs scored is entirely determined by the rest of your team to drive you in, RBIs, something that Cabrera dominated at).
Played at a very high level right through university actually.

I don't know what you're looking for. You're using antequated stats. You seem to think that Cabrera had some influence in ensuring he had baserunners in scoring position when he stepped to the plate.

Trout made a large impact on the basepaths... 49sb's is incredible. He also played Gold Glove calibre defense, something that Cabrera didn't do.

Maybe you're marred by the fact that Detroit made the playoffs and the Angels didn't. But this shouldn't really have an effect on the decision (even though it does). The award is judged based on the Most Valuable Player to his TEAM. And simply put using modern statistics Trout is clearly the most valuable to his own team.

Do you still use a typewriter? Do you use a telephone with rottary dial?
