What makes you think I have never seen it? I also don't see Cabrera performing dramatically worse on the field. So, let's say we ignore intangibles, since you already are: Who has stepped it up in the 2nd half when the playoffs are on the line and which player has retreated to being "human" in the 2nd half? There are more factors than just the one's you are using. I have a different perspective and I think it is fair.
PS: I'm not going to start a separate Hamilton vs Trout argument as I don't see the point over arguing who finishes 2nd. Nobody cares who finishes 2nd.
