The MVP awards are announced tonight. Buster Posey is going to win, and deservedly so. Miguel Cabrera is also going to win, and he’s not the worst choice the voters have ever made. Cabrera had a fantastic season. This isn’t Juan Gonzalez in 1996 or anything. But, as you almost certainly know...
BEST OF MAXIM

I’m going to keep this extremely short! Miguel Cabrera won the TRIPLE CROWN! While Mike Trout had possibly the best rookie season ever, The Triple Crown is something that most of us watching sports these days have NEVER seen!

It is a foregone conclusion that when the American League MVP award is announced later today that Miguel Cabera will be declared the winner. The logic goes that Cabrera and his Triple Crown will simply be too much for the more traditional voters that make up a major bloc in the Baseball Writers Association of America.

Just when you thought everyone associated with the baseball was getting smarter, an awards voting comes along and proves we’re still really dumb.
Angels center fielder Mike Trout was shut out in the awards voting this month. He finished second in AL MVP, and he did not win a Gold Glove. Oh yeah, he did win AL Rookie of the Year. Whoopie. Excuse me if I’m not so excited about...
