The defense was given in purposeful irony to point out the silliness of the Cabrera's Triple Crown = MVP argument. I've made my full reasoning for Trout's merits many times, in detail, throughout this thread.
But please, make up your mind. Does batting average matter or not? It can't matter for Cabrera but not for Trout.
