Re: AL mvp....
I don't disagree. Defense & baserunning most certainly matter. But if he pulls off the triple crown...which hasn't been done since Yaz...I just don't see how they CAN'T give it to him.
I just think it puts things in a very interesting situation. By the new standards, it's clearly Trout's to lose. But by the old standards, how can the triple crown winner (possibly) NOT be the league MVP? It just struck me as a very interesting scenario shaping up (if he pulls it off that is).
