The Cabrera thing is pretty crazy, although the top batting averages are pretty low this year, which is the real factor that's allowing it to happen. Could still fall apart in the final game, his lead is extremely slim. Would be interesting if despite all this he lost the MVP to Trout, which is possible.
Oh ok gotcha. Tomoro is gonna be a VERY interesting day
& I think he got it locked up. Theres 1 game left and hes leading with a .331 average over Trouts .324. Unless Hamilton hits 2 HRs, i think its already locked up. This might be the closest MVP race in a loooong time
