If Cabrera wins the triple crown I don't know how he doesn't win the MVP. I would go down as one of the greatest offensive seasons in recent history.
I guess compared to the rest of the league it would be but Pujols 2008 season seems to be the gold standard of recent great seasons. Also, you have to remember that Pujols came into the league in 2001 when Bonds was putting up those crazy numbers. Pujols never reached those numbers that Bonds put up but many of his years early in the 2000's were significantly better than the season Cabrera is putting up now.
