I guess my point is, I wouldn't look at Mike Trout posting say a .370 BABIP and necessarily say that it's likely to drop.
And no, Barry Larkin absolutely didn't deserve the MVP that he got. He had a great season, but other guys simply had better ones.
I can't say giving the All-Star vote to the fans has worked out real well-it's largely become a popularity contest. I'm not sure I would like to see the same thing with the MVP.
