      There's no question that Trout's been the best player, but the Angels are in 3rd place in their own division and currently out of the playoff picture (though that can change). I don't think he should win if the Angels don't make the postseason. That team is loaded with superstar talent and would be considered a huge disappointment if they aren't playing in October.

      Also, it's kind of strange to include two Twins players in the top 10 when they are the worst team in the AL.

        how is Jeter an MVP candidate? If you are determined to vote for a Yankee, it has to be Cano

        But it is Trout for me, right now

          Trout's been the most fun to watch.

          But if the ChiSox hold on and win, I wouldn't be surprised to see somebody like Chris Sale getting it while Verlander/Price wins the Cy Young.

            I put Trout but I think Alex Rios is starting to garner attention.

              I voted Cabrera because I think he is just having another fantastic season, and is flying under the radar again because of another standout season by someone else. Its got to be either Trout or Cabrera IMO, but yet its possible neither players will play in the postseason.

                If it's not Trout, I think it will be Josh Hamilton. 40+ HR and 130+ RBI is hard to ignore.

                  By the way how is Jeter on here? He hasn't really had a MVP worthy season.

                    Just because he's not MVP worthy doesn't mean he's not in the discussion for top 10.

                    Why are you only asking about Jeter? Is he the only player on the list who hasn't had an MVP worthy season in your opinion?

                      He is the one that stood out and i agree. The two twins players on the list are hardly deserving either.

                        I agree 100% with you here but...there is always a but. Hamilton's slow June and horrendous July after having an amazing first 2 months of the season are going to hurt him. He had a good August and a good September so far but many voters are going to look at his season as a bit of a failure or what could have been.

                        Now, keep in mind I'm a huge Hamilton fan and agree that his season has still been great and should be hard to ignore but I just have a feeling Trout and Cabrera are going to run the table on 1st place votes (with the possible exception of the Texas voters going for Hamilton).

                          I went with Hamilton, but I could see Cabrera or Trout

                            I was tempted to go with Cabrera, who I consider the best hitter in baseball, but I had to give it to Trout.
