BUT, this guy was on a team with over one half of his starting team batting at 300 or better. That is five guys in the line up each and every day. That has got to help Cabrera get hits,RBI's and hitting average. Also, he was supported by a league ace pitcher and a very apt pitching staff.


The Angels had a team batting overage of .274, vs. .268 for the Tigers and scored 41 more runs. Their respective team ERA's were 4.02 and 3.75, which equates to another 40 or so runs. Detroit had the #2 Cy Young finisher, while the Angels had #3. Looks to be pretty much a wash, except that Cabrera had better numbers everywhere except stolen bases.

And his team won.
