Miguel Cabrera, AL MVP, again: As expected, the Tigers' third baseman claimed the prize for a second straight year. Cabrera (.348/.442/.636) received 23 of 30 first-place votes. Mike Trout (.323/.432/.557) is your runner-up. He got five first-place votes. Chris Davis and Josh Donaldson got the other two.
Your roundup of all the hottest hot-stove items of the day (and whatever shit Ken Rosenthal is throwing against the wall). This is ... HOT FUCKING STOVE!!!
Indignant nerds may stand down. Your numerically eviscerating PowerPoint presentation about Derek Jeter's faults is both lovely and precise, but will not be needed this year. (Only an idiotic first-place vote for Miguel Cabrera kept it from being unanimous.) [MPR]
