    Cabrera again?

    Probably. That he nearly repeated the Triple Crown is impressive.

    Yeah, but he DIDN'T win the TC, he fell off dramatically the final month of the season, and the Tigers, who were supposed to bulldoze the division by 20 games, had to straggle to the finish line to win it by a single game.

    Agreed, no big debate needed this year. Trout is again the best player in the league. :D

    Even hobbled by injuries most of the final month of the season, Cabrera was the far superior hitter again and he did it on a playoff team. Cabrera should win it again.

    Xan goes with Jim Johnson, the O's would have lost 51 more games without him. :)

    Except Trout was the better player. Just as he was last year.

    Also, Starman brought up the Tigers winning the division by a narrow margin as if it was a negative for Cabrera. If anything, that works in his favor. They needed every bit of his production to win the AL Central.

    Remember, they had some key hitters underachieve, including Prince Fielder. Peralta got suspended for 50 games. Victor Martinez did very little the first half of the season as he returned from a blown out knee. If the Tigers disappointed at all, it certainly wasn't because of Cabrera. He was the main reason they got through it all and won the AL Central anyway.
