Miguel Cabrera is the right choice. The rest is just sound and fury.
The award is not Player of the Year. It is not Most Awesome Overall Skills. And it most certainly is not a Math Bowl.

Mike Trout is a sensational player, the Second Coming of Mickey Mantle. If he is graced with good health and good fortune, he is going to win multiple MVP awards by the time he's finished.
But his time is not now. Not for this year's MVP award.
