The thing I hate most about the whole Miggy for MVP thing is that it makes me cheer against a guy that I really enjoy watching doing something that I really want to see.
Here's a question: Does Trout regress to the mean next year?
This seems equally silly. If you like a guy, root for him to do well. The other stuff -- Facebook, sportswriters, awards -- we should be able to look past that by now.
Here's a question: Does Trout regress to the mean next year? He's having a historically great season. Those tend to be hard to repeat. Then again, guys who are 20 usually get better but there's been very few guys as good as Trout at such a young age. It's going to be interesting to see how things work out for him.
Doesn't it often turn out that most players who are THIS GOOD at 20 have already peaked, or never get much better? They definitely don't usually follow the typical aging curve. First, for the obvious reason that it's nearly impossible to get any better. Second, because it probably means this was already their "everything came together" season and they can't count on everything breaking their way again. Although in Trout's case, he can expect to play 25 more games in the future
Cabrera 4-5, .329
Trout 3-3, .324 (still playing)
Mauer 1-5, .322
You'd think this was the 1927 Yankees who came out and limped to a division title they should have won going away.
There's just a little twinge in the back of my head that thinks, "oh boy, here come the idiots in force now".
#24 and #26: I haven't been following the Tigers that closely, but is this perceived under-performance the genesis of all the stories regarding Leyland's future with the team? Or is he just considering retirement?
Interesting choice for Miggy the next 2 days. Typically a good time to rest the star players. And, often a guy with a lead for the batting crown can take a day or two off to protect his edge. But NOT playing increases the chances that Josh Hamilton (who is gonna play, unless the poor guy sustains yet another most-weird injury or illness) passes him for the HR title. So I guess he plays tonight, and if he cranks another bomb, he takes Wed off.
Between the end of last fantasy season and April this year I traded both Trout and Harper. /keeperleagueregrets
There would be nothing idiotic at all about Miguel Cabrera winning MVP. And I say that as a guy who would vote for Mike Trout.
(bonus note: Giancarlo Stanton is going ot finish 2nd in the NL in home runs, despite missing almost a quarter of the season)
I feel a fat 0-8 coming for Miggy.
