The MVP Awards were handed out by MLB today, with Buster Posey taking the honors in the NL, after returning from his horrible leg injury a year ago, and Miguel Cabrera getting the nod in the AL over Mike Trout.
The latter is bound to spark debate, as many voters and fans preferred Trout's numbers over Cabera's. Cabrera fans argue the Triple Crown means equally as much, especially in historical context, plus the greater impact Cabrera arguably had on his team, since they made the playoffs and subsequently won the American League.

I don't care about these new stats, if you win a Triple Crown on a playoff team you hands down deserve the MVP. Congrats to Miguel Cabrera— SportsBlogNewYork (@SportsBlogNYC) November 16, 2012
