AL MVP- Miguel Cabrera, 1B, Detroit Tigers. Cabrera is in the mix for the Triple Crown. Mentioning someone’s name and Triple Crown in the same sentence makes it easy deciding who the midway MVP is. He’s batting .346 (tied for 1st with Josh Hamilton) and he has 22 home runs so far, which is second to only Jose Bautista (24). He has 77 RBI and that stands alone as first not only in the AL but the NL as well.
His stats are tremendous, but that’s not the only reason he should be the MVP. Time and time again, Cabrera gets big hits for the Tigers when they need it most.
