But look at Cabrera’s numbers; that’s ridiculous. That’s right up there with some of the best players in baseball (history).”
It seems like everybody is trying to turn this into a traditional numbers vs. sabermetrics debate when it really isn't.
Yes, Cabrera is having an MVP-type season offensively. However, Trout is having a better MVP-type season on offense alone.
FanGraphs and B-Ref agree that Cabrera has accumulated 5-7 runs more than Trout on offense
BBrefs batting runs doesnt include baserunning, or GIDP. Adding them in puts Trout ahead in total offensive value, and that incorporates playing time. At best you can say Cabrera is tied because of fangraphs.
