Here’s why that’s bullshit: First, Trout’s got a massive lead in offensive value, which we can measure relatively precisely: a wRC+ lead of 173 to 137 and a lead in TAv of .357 to .297.
Feel ya, dogg. Brady's wRC and TAv were off the charts last year, but the Broncos defense beat him. Stupid TAv.
Trout's won once, when he's arguably been worthy of the award for each of the past 5 years (including this one). clearly Trout needs to wake TF up and realize that if he really wants to be MVP he needs to take his talents to The Hub of the universe and stop wasting his time in Anaheim, wherever/whatever TF that is.
Shhhh Shhh shhhh shh shh shhhhhhhh, Rodney, bubbie, remember, doesn't matter if you use stats, superstats, nerdy superstats, eye tests, sportswriter likeability tests, or anything, if one plays for Boston, HE'S BETTER. We all make mistakes
