This is dumb. You can argue the BBWAA is blinded by old school measures like the triple crown, fine. And Albom sucks, obviously. But old white guys loving a Venezuelan with a sketchy past over a young white American upstart? Yeah. Sure.
Agree in that, yes, but the framing of Albom and the CHB (unnamed but definitely anti-Sabermetrics) against Nate Silver et al does make sense to me.
I think Ken Tremendous pointed out that if Trout hit 3 more singles (3 more Texas Leaguers, three more dying quails, three more seeing eye singles), he wins the batting championship, and probably MVP. Just saying.
