It should be who is the best player, but just like politics they choose a party and pick their poster boy. It hurts the game way more than OPS and WAR.
What's funny is simply watching the games you can see who the better player is. Cabrera hits for more power, that's the only thing he does better.....i hate these idiots putting so much weight into RBI, FFS if Trout batted 3rd or 4th he'd be driving in 100+ easily

I view these old guys like the neo cons where they refuse to adapt and accept reality. WAR is not obscure, WAR is probably the best single stat to evaluate a player because it takes so much into consideration......meh whatever, I was reading an interview Trout did, and he felt he should win the MVP, that tells me he is going to have a great winter because he's going to feel like he got robbed.

I say .340/.410/.600 with 70 steals next year for him
