Mike Trout created more value for his team so is the Most Valuable Player in my book. Turning a so-clearly named award into the Most Historical/Cool/Neat Story of a Season Award makes it subjective and pointless.
you are subjective and pointless. jkjkjk
the reason is, because its awesome, and it hasnt happened in forever. when it was more common, it was less awesome. that is probably why some winners didnt get MVP. but now that it is awesome and rare, of course he got MVP. you dont have to like it, but decrying it isnt gonna matter. to the average sports fan joe like me, awesomeness wins awards, boring stats do not. no hate.
please send mr trout an MVP award from your book, i am sure he will appreciate it.
