Re: AL mvp....
Triple crown or not could end up beside the point, the Tigers are only 2 back in that division with nothing but Twins and Royals left on their schedule, while the White Sox play the Angels next, then Indians and Rays. Right or wrong, if Cabrera stays hot and the Tigers get in, I think they vote him the MVP because of that, if they don't get in, I think Trout still wins it.
