Miguel Cabrera Is The AL MVP [NoeBrainer]

Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera has solidified himself as the 2012 American League MVP this season.

There was a little portion that was missing in the sentence above. According to me, Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera has solidified himself as the 2012 American League MVP this season. Now, “according to me” doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. However, I’m not the only one who believes that Miguel Cabrera should be named AL MVP this season.

Miguel Cabrera batted .330 with 44 home runs and 139 RBIs. Cabrera won the AL triple crown for first time since 1967 when Carl Yastrzemski accomplished the same feat. On a side note, did you know that Carl Yastrzemski went to the University of Notre Dame? That’s an interesting nugget.

Mike Trout batted .326 with 30 home runs and 83 RBIs. He also stole 49 bases and played great defense. That’s not shabby at all. However, Mike Trout’s team didn’t make the postseason. The individual numbers between Cabrera and Trout this season are extremely comparable. Team success is the obvious tiebreaker. The AL MVP should go to Cabrera.
