  22. Trout? Cabrera? Doesn’t matter much. They both had MVP seasons

    Nov 15, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    A quick thought on the Miguel Cabrera-Mike Trout MVP race. As you might know, I had a vote this year. And I voted for Trout. I suppose that won’t be a shocker for anyone on this site. I’ve never hidden my strong opinion that while Cabrera’s the best hitter in the game, Trout is the best…

Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

  25. So, what’s the market for Billy Butler anyway?

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Josh Phegley, Jerry Meals, Billy Butler

    This kind of doubles as a “what’s the market for Kendrys Morales?” post, too. Anyway, the Royals have let it be known that Billy Butler is available, according to ESPN’s Buster Olney. Had they done this a year ago, they would have been in line for a nice return. Now? Probably not so much. Butler…
