One last award to hand out

The American League MVP will be announced this afternoon. It’s the final award given by Major League Baseball, and Robinson Cano is in the mix.

Although Jose Bautista and Paul Konerko will get some support, the award is — in my mind — a three-man race.

Miguel Cabrera
.328, 38 HR, 126 RBI
Statistically impressive, including the league lead in OPS+ and RBI, but the Tigers were terrible and Cabrera’s numbers might be enough against guys who played for winners.

Robinson Cano
.319, 29 HR, 109 RBI
As steady as anyone in contention, Cano’s consistency — plus the fact that he played Gold Glove defense — might be enough to push him over the top.

Josh Hamilton
.359, 32 HR, 100 RBI
A heavy favorite before a late-season injury cost him most of the final month. Even with the injury, the overall production remains awfully impressive. Led in average, slugging and OPS.
