Although voting is done before the playoffs start, I think the Tigers making it to the post-season really helped Cabrerra.
I'm not saying that I agree with the thinking, but in past MVP history, there are plenty of times where the player going to the post-season has an edge over one whose team didn't make it. Braun last year was on the NL Central champ Brewers, Votto on the Reds when they won the division in 2010.... THere are exceptions, but it helped Miguel.
