Re: AL mvp....
A few points about the Cabrera move to third debate.
1. One could argue that Cabrera moving to third increased his value without arguing that it was enough to justify giving him the MVP over Trout.
2. One can argue that being flexible and willing to switch positions for the betterment of the team adds value to that player without conceding that that is what Cabrera did this season.
3. I think there are plenty of examples of things that a player does like being willing to move off of his position that leads to more wins, even if it doesn't show up in stats.
