who is going to win the 2012 AL MVP?
Mike Trout is an obvious choice for rookie of the year, but does he also win the MVP?
1st in AVG - .343
2nd in OBP - .407
1st in SLG - .603
1st in OPS - 1.010
1st in R - 97
1st in SB - 39
13th in HR - 24
16th in RBI - 70 (despite only batting leadoff)
he also didn't play much of the 1st month. ridiculous numbers.
in April before Trout came up the Los Angeles Angels were 6-14. the Angels are now 64-60, which means they have been 58-46 with Trout.
Mike Trout - .343/.407/.603/1.010/ 24 HR/ 70 RBI/ 97 R/ 39 SB
who else is there?
Miguel Cabrera? .326/.394/.584/.978/ 31 HR/ 105 RBI/ 82 R/
Prince Fielder? 310/.406/.517/.923/ 22 HR/ 89 RBI/ 66 R/
Josh Hamilton? .285/.351/.576/.927/ 34 HR/ 102 RBI/ 80 R/
Edwin Encarnacion? .291/.387/.564/.951/ 32 HR/ 84 RBI/ 75 R/
anyone I'm forgetting? I don't think there is anyone else who could win over the guys mentioned, especially Trout.
last year I remember a thread with heated debate, mostly over Jose Bautista. injuries have hurt him this season, but if he didn't win it last year I don't think he had much of a chance this year.
