Could Miguel Cabrera Take Home MVP and Triple Crown Honors?
The Detroit Tigers hope a late-season surge can help them reach the 2012 MLB playoffs as they currently trail the Chicago White Sox by three games in the AL Central. One of the main reasons why the Tigers have seen plenty of success this season is because of the stellar play from Miguel Cabrera, who has a made a strong case to take home MVP honors in the American League.
Through the first 146 games, Cabrera is batting .333 to go along with 40 home runs and 129 RBIs. What’s even more impressive is that Cabrera has a chance to earn the Triple Crown this season as he only trails Andrew McCutchen in batting average along with Josh Hamilton and Ryan Braun in home runs.
With these types of numbers, Cabrera has certainly made a strong case to take home MVP honors, but nothing is guaranteed as the American League is filled with plenty of talented players who have displayed impressive seasons of their own. Cabrera’s strongest contender at the moment appears to be Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels, who has arguably displayed one of the best rookie seasons of all time in 2012 and may have the edge over Cabrera with his steller defense.
If Detroit can figure out a way to reach the postseason, Cabrera would seem like a complete lock to take home MVP honors for the 2012 season. Of course, if he figured out a way to take home the Triple Crown title when the regular season comes to an end, that would make Cabrera an automatic lock for the award.
