Plus, I'd bet that the voters don't feel like dealing with the tons of backlash they will get from the general baseball fan population that knows nothing about WAR or other advanced metrics - to the casual fan, it seems just as obvious that Miggy should be the MVP as folks at the Cafe believe Trout should be.
