You've got 13 year olds playing 100 plus games a year and playing like machines. By the time they get into high school the cream is at the top and damn near ready for the majors after a little more polish. I also feel that Harper's ceiling is a little higher Trout's but we'll see about that next year. What he has done at 19 is amazing.

Think about why this year is so different!
PRINCE FIELDER BATS RIGHT AFTER HIM...cannot afford to walk Miggy this year.

I think Cabrera is a great player, but to me Trout is hands down the MVP. With the likes of Prince Fielder and Justin Verlander having great years, is Cabrera really even the MVP of the Tigers? I mean they are talking about Verlander winning the Cy Young again. Trout may not have the homeruns and RBI's (he is a lead-off hitter after all), but his defense is far superior to Cabrera, his WAR is off the charts, he threatens pitchers and gets them out of their rhythm every time he is on base due to his steals, and Cabrera also leads the majors in 28 double plays grounded into.
