It was the tightest race of the entire season.  The AL MVP award could have went one of two ways: Mike Trout, the dynamic rookie who was a force the second he stepped on the field or the eventual winner Miguel Cabrera, the triple crown winner who is arguably the best hitter in the league.  Both deserved the honor, but Cabrera’s historic season put him over the edge.  Not to worry Trout fans, if he stays this good, there will be many MVP awards in his future.  As for the National League, the honor went to World Series winner Buster Posey who has himself a phenomenal year.
