Well, I'm pretty sure he's saying the Tigers were one of those teams, and they were, starting at game 161...

I don't want to assume what his argument is, argue against it, and they have him say that wasn't his argument.

Mike can commit to an argument or shut the **** up.

Sure.  One team was more successful than the other.    Do you need a link?

The Tigers got to the postseason. But the Angels were better.

It's dumb to tie individual MVP awards to overall team performance. It's even dumber to tie individual awards to the overall team performance of the other teams in each players' division.

How valuable are you when your team misses the post-season?    Couldn't they have done the same without you?  Isn't the objective to have a chance to play for a championship?

In Trout's case? Still more valuable than Miguel Cabrera.

Was Alex Avila more valuable than Mike Trout?

Because, by your logic, he should be. The Tigers wouldn't have made the post-season without Avila. And, with Trout, the Angels didn't make the post-season.

Just checked Trout's bio.   I don't see a MVP on there for 2012.    Would you like a link to check it yourself?

Oh I see. You have no argument. Good game, bis.
8/9/2013 3:38 PM

Sure I do.   But, unlike you, I won't repeat myself on cue.

I understand why you don't want to repeat a losing argument. No biggie.
8/9/2013 3:42 PM
Repeating "I'm right and the voters got it wrong" isn't much of an argument.    But, if that's your thing, please continue.
8/9/2013 3:45 PM
That's part of it. The why part of why I'm right is also pretty important.
8/9/2013 4:39 PM
You're not right, but Mike's reasons for that are inane.

You don't think trout was more valuable?
