That's for the best and most valuable player in the game, which was obviously Trout for anybody that watched that guy play this season. MCab should win the Hank Aaron Award, though.

You don't understand how huge this is.

Its a great feat.


Its been 45 years since anyone has done this

45 years.
45 years since anyone has done what exactly? Hit for a really high average and racked up some rather arbitrary counting stats that rely largely on opportunity? Baseball analysis has advanced to the point where there are better and more effective ways to evaluate players than this. Barry Bonds, for example, spent like 3/4 of his career with offensive seasons better than this one.

They weren't cheering so much for Cabrera as they were what he did.

You have to respect that, if you're a baseball fan.
Oh, I respect his season just fine. I just also recognize that he was even better than this in both 2010 and 2011.
