Right. But if the Tigers win the World Series this year, Cabrera's value as a Tiger, helping them reach the playoffs, which leads them to winning the WS, makes him even more valuable to the Tigers than Trout to the Angels. I know you don't look at the postseason when voting for the MVP, but the Angels cannot possibly win a WS. Trout is not as valuable to the Angels as Cabrera was to the Tigers. What the records of the 2 teams are, is irrelevant.
