Re: AL mvp....
This award competition was overhyped.
Generally, when an MVP candidate's team makes the playoffs, he has a better chance of winning.
If the Angels had made the playoffs, THEN this would have been a real nail biter.
But with the Tigers making the playoffs and the Angels not, I never thought there was much doubt Cabrera would win it.
It's just the gloss voters put on "most valuable." Many of them obviously think there's a limit to "value" when your team doesn't make the playoffs.
On the Reds, I'm glad Chapman got some votes, my personal opinion was that Aroldis was the Reds MVP last year. I know others might disagree.
