Think It Over Thursday – 10.4.12

(By YetiVedder)

With the presidential debate that happened last night we are all thinking the same thing?  Who will win the A.L. MVP?  Yeti Vedder fooled you there, didn’t he?  I love the game of baseball and this MVP vote has sparked some awesome debate.  On one hand you have the best rookie baseball has ever had in Mike Trout.  The guy was simply a beast the entire season and is simply the definition of a five tool player.  Any other season he is the MVP.

Then Miggy Cabrera comes along and wins the Triple Crown.  This can’t go unrewarded.  I have seen arguments where people say well Ted Williams wasn’t the MVP when he won it.  That is because Teddy Ballgame was on horrible Red Sox teams that often finished third or worse in their division.  Cabrera carried that offense.  He and Prince Fielder were pretty much all that team had at the bat.  Name another hitter on the Tigers.  Austin Jackson is a good player, but the drop off after him is ridiculous.

Trout played with Pujols, Hunter, Trumbo as well as a great pitching staff and didn’t make the playoffs.  He also missed a month.  This is another bitter argument of people.  He missed a month and still had amazing numbers that would have been even better if he had played it.  Says who?  What if he slumped those two weeks?  Cabrera played the entire season and carried his team to a division title.  He won the first Triple Crown since Yaz and deserves to be recognized for his amazing season.   Give Trout Rookie of the Year.  Cabby is the MVP.

BUT if you voted who do you give your vote to?

About yetivedder

Straight outta Cumberland, R.I. is a crazy mother f'er named Yeti. I will steal your food, drink, and girl all while you are not looking. He might actually do it while you are looking but be very polite while taking all three. He will also do it in that order mainly because he is always hungry, thirsty, and horny! The Yeti will throw the greatest party that you won't remember, because he needs to remain a figment of your imagination. He wants the ladies to think that they may or may not have made love to a giant man last night while feeding him a steak and cheese sandwich! The Yeti is all about getting people to make bad decisions, but yet these bad decisions just feel so right. The Yeti is a diehard sports fan and is never afraid to show his team colors. He also isn't afraid to talk about himself in the third person like the greatest of all time Ricky Henderson! Yeti Likes: Easy women, cheap beer, expensive beer being given out for free, Red Sox baseball KFC and all, Lakers basketball, Metta World Peace, Bruins, Mashmond, Patriots, and bringing Randy Moss back! Easy women, URI basketball, old school WWF wrestling... Yeah I said F!, J's Deli samiches. Sponsor the Yeti page with some free sandwiches!!! More beer, and easy women! Tupac, Biggie, Snoop, Dre, Jay-Z Yeti dislikes: Wine drinkers that think they are better then me, Yeti hunters on TV that have no idea where Yeti's hang out! Hard women... Take that however you'd like... New school WWE, Any rapper with Lil or a direction in their name. Models who refuse to date me, when all I want to do is feed them. Relish of any kind... It is a Yeti kyrptonite.

    a no doubter on cabrera. the mvp selection process has this weird unwritten rule about how good your team is. meaning a-rod drops 200 homeruns in 1 season but his team misses the playoffs… you get the idea. if you had to, i think anyone could make a strong case for trout. but trip crown you won’t see again for a long, long time.
