I can't really exclude that when comparing two players who had very good years.
If WAR is your stat of choice, why is it between Cabrera/Trout?
If RC is your stat of choice, why aren't you touting Cabrera?
ADJ batting wins, Cabrera?
I could go on but I hope you get my point by now. There are plenty of stats to look at and you can use them to make a case for any number of players. So it kind of goes back to what I said earlier "Who would I want on my ******* team this year?" or, conversely, "Who would I NOT want to face in a big situation?" And it comes back to Cabrera. That's not to say anyone who thinks Trout is MVP is a moron. They aren't. But to say "head and shoulders" is moronic. It's not that easy.
