Aww they pulled Granderson. Would've loved to see him get 4 HRs just to rub it in the faces of all the Cabera fanbois who think that the triple crown stats are the only three that matter and getting 87 wins in the Central is more impressive than 89 and the West. (Triple Crown is still pretty awesome. Don't want to take that away from Miguel. But Trout clearly had the better season as a whole)

No reason to pull Shelby Miller after only 72 pitches tonight. Another game, another day of me being frustrated with Matheny.

Question for those who support Cabrera's case for MVP:

If he fell one point/HR/RBI short of the TC, woul dyou still consider him the MVP?

Yes. Don't throw out the fact that he led his team to the playoffs as well.

Yes, he "led" his team that has three other top 10-15 most valuable players in the AL.

Does the fact that Trout "led" the Angels to a better record in a tougher decision not trump that?

He played on a team that grossly underperformed to expectations all year and ended up with the 7th-best record in the league. He didn't "lead" anything.

Mike trout definitely had more of an effect on his team's success than Miguel Cabrera did. I don't think that going to the playoffs or not should play into the conversation of who get's MVP.

It's only for this year because of last minute scheduling. I hate it too, but it will be gone next year. 2-2-1 is much better.
