Not his fault but that is where most see the word value come in to play. How can something have value if you can not reap anything from it.
The Angels and MLB are absolutely reaping the benefits from it. With your logic provided, why don't we just wait until the World Series is over and then just vote for the team MVP from the World Series champ? Clearly that player should be the MVP since if you don't win the last game of the year, you can't reap anything from it.
