Cabrera, McCutchen Win MVP Awards as Trout, Goldschmidt Get Shafted
The 2013 MLB Awards season has come to a close.
Thankfully, baseball saved it’s biggest individual honor for last. On Thursday, the National League and American League Most Valuable Players were unveiled and both winners currently play for teams that made the postseason in 2013. Coincidence? I think not.
Both Miguel Cabrera and Andrew McCutchen were your respective MVPs. This was Cabrera’s second straight honor, while a 27-year-old McCutchen gives even more reason for a growing Pittsburgh Pirates fan base to cheer.
However, two players in particular can’t be too happy about the MVP results. Both Mike Trout and Paul Goldschmidt had fantastic seasons in 2013, and nobody seems to care. You see, both the Los Angeles Angels and the Arizona Diamondbacks fell short of the playoffs and that definitely had an impact when it came to the MVP. What if Trout had been on the Detroit Tigers‘ roster, and Goldschmidt played Pirates in 2013? Well if that were the case then the MVP standings would have a different feel to them if you ask me.
At the end of the day; Cabrera and McCutchen deserve the honors, but Trout and Goldschmidt have plenty of reason to be sour over this one.
