MVP by Jake Lueck

1 Dec

Miguel Cabrera is a baseball player on the Detroit Tigers who has just won the Triple Crown. The Triple Crown has not been won in around thirty years. The Triple Crown is when one player has the most homeruns, RBIs (runs batted in), and the highest batting average in their league. The league though is still wondering who should win the Most Valuable Player award. The two main contestants are Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera. Mike Trout is personally my favorite baseball player but I do not believe he is leading in this race because, yes, he does have the most stolen bases and the second best batting average and he is a rookie but compared to Miguel Cabrera’s statistics he has no comparison. The reason why there is no contrast is because Miguel Cabrera has dominated and led his team to the playoffs, and Mike Trout and the Angels did not make the playoffs. The Angels are my favorite baseball team but this is the one time I will ever go against my team because Miguel Cabrera has just set a milestone for his career and he is the only player that deserves this award. Mike Trout will win the rookie of the year without another player even being mentioned. It would be absolutely stunning if Miguel Cabrera does not win this award because Mike Trout has his whole career ahead of him and since Trout missed the first month of the season who knows what his stats could have been like with another thirty games. Mike Trout is without a doubt the Most Valuable Player of the Angels and maybe in a year or two he will have the title of “Most Valuable Player”. Hopefully he will also earn a World Series championship ring and many more captivating milestones! Once the winner has been chosen there will be no surprise who it is and the player will have deserved it indefinitely.

    I believe that though Miguel Cabrera had a historic year and accomplished something that wasn’t done for thirty years, Mike trout had a bigger impact for his team. He lead the league in stolen bases,second in batting average and had one of the best defensive years in history and had the highest WAR (wins above replacement) since Barry Bonds.Cabrera won because he took his team farther into the playoffs.

    I agree that Miguel Cabrera should deserved the MVP award. Its hard to give an award to a player who plays for a team who didn’t make the playoffs especially when that team has the best player of our time (Albert Pujols) on it. If the Angels didn’t have Mike Trout then they still would have been irrelevant come playoff time so it doesn’t make much of a difference. If the Tigers didn’t have Miguel Cabrera they wouldn’t have made the playoffs or have gone on to make the World Series.
