Umm... Baseball is a religion. Sabermetrics is a science.The point though is that it is cult-like behavior to rely on one metric to the exclusion of all others, which is precisely what the author did. He started with a decision that he wanted Trout for MVP and then worked backward. People do this all the time. Of course, this is not good science.Yes, I live in Detroit. That said, I can't imagine not voting a Triple Crown winner MVP. I particularly can't imagine not voting a Triple Crown winner MVP when his closest competitor played for a more talented team in a much more talented lineup yet missed the post season.
