But sure, let's just keep pretending it wasn't anything special and downplaying it because TRIPLE CROWN!
And yet not as good as Matt Kemp's 2011 season - the same Matt Kemp that didn't
win the MVP last year.
But that's right, he only scored 115 runs and stole 40 bases when he was hitting 1/3 more HRs and driving in 50% more runs.
It was a great season - but a season very similar to it happens every other year or so.
