I think an argument could be made for sure.
60 more ab's, 20 more hits, 13 more doubles, 14 more homers, 56 more RBI's, 41 fewer strikeouts, better avg, slg and ops, helped his team advance to the playoffs and won the MVP.
Nope, nothing at all to suggest he may have had a better season.
Trout had more SB's, 1 more walk, was a better defender, played less and led Cabrera in one stat basically WAR. Don't get me wrong, Trout had a GREAT season...but sorry, Cabrera deserved the MVP imo. But even if you want to quibble about who should've won it, I think it's pretty ludicrous to suggest that there's no facts to suggest he didn't have the better season.
