Don't know what you're referring to; what I do know is that Cabrera's not nearly a lock for MVP, with Trout being that much better in the Wins above Replacement category.


Not being contentious here, but how many people know about WAR, or care? I often wonder how much the trendy new Sabremetrics numbers have really penetrated the average fan of the game (which is all I can consider myself).


They've probably penetrated the average fan more than the average voter, as the voters are older than the average fans.
