The award is Most Valuable Player, not Best Offensive Player. You don't even need sabremetrics to make the case for Trout.

Cabrera was more deserving of MVP in 2010 and 2011 than he was this year and IMO he shoulda won it those years. Aside from HR and RBI Cabrera was better in 2010 and 2011 in every other category.

2010: 150G 38HR 111R 126RBI .328/.420/.622/1.042 6.3 WAR
2011: 161G 30HR 111R 105RBI .344/.448/.586/1.034 7.2 WAR
2012: 161G 44HR 109R 139RBI .330/.393/.606/.999 7.1 WAR
