Are you restricting just to position players? Because in 1991 Glavine had a 9.0 WAR vs. 5.8 for Pendleton (Bonds was the highest position player at 7.6). It's a bit crazy that I always viewed Pendleton over Bonds as a historically poor choice, but that was only half as bad via WAR as the decision for Cabrera over Trout.
Did it not matter that the Angels only played Trout for five months?
Infinitely worse. It literally hurt your eyes to look at it. I've seen a lot of terrible web design, but the old BBWA site was in an entirely different league.
Followed logically, you can use that argument to invalidate any argument about a player leading in multiple categories being award-worthy. I don't see that as helpful.

I think that's part of it. I know WAR is a counting stat, but Cabrera did play 20 more games than Trout.
