Mike Trout at 10 WAR
 
Quote:


Angels oufielder Mike Trout has 22 regular season games left in what has been an all-time historic season. The best measure of Trout's greatness are the Wins Above Replacement that he has accrued. The WAR stat is a comprehensive gage of a player's complete accomplishments. It is the rare counting stat that follows the mathematical rhythm of rate stats.

There are many headlines today touting that Mike Trout is enjoying a 10 WAR season and that he is the first player since Barry Bonds to do so and one of a handful of players - the list is small and it is exclusively Hall of Fame caliber players. You get used to tossing the word Cooperstown around when you discuss Michael Nelson Trout.

I really can't say who I think is going to win the MVP, yet. Right now, I say Cabrera and Trout are tied.

Cabrera is going into a deep slump and the Tigers are just mere outs away from their season being over.

Alright. WAR is just one subject, though. The reason I still can't decide is because of Cabrera's home runs and RBI's. I'm not a home run crazy fan, but 34 (or 35?) home runs count for something in the MVP race. I'm beginning to lean to Trout, though.

Home runs are a terrible stat to base an MVP vote off of.

You do know that WAR represents a lot of things right? Why do you think Miggy has a good oWAR? Because he can hit.

That's what I meant..

I just think writers will be leaning towards Trout because he has the numbers to win a RoY and an MVP. But Cabrera also has the numbers. I just think the writers are going to be biased in the voting because they would like to see a RoY and an MVP in the same season instead of just an MVP.

But then again, if Trout keeps doing what he's doing, he will win the MVP. But if Cabrera keeps doing what he was doing before this 'slump', I really can't say who will win it.

Right now, Trout is a much hotter hitter then Cabrera, but Cabrera's stats have been holding up due to his past performances. It's basically this: Whoever slips up first loses the MVP.
