in this context, it should be playoff berth, not birth.


How stupid! Comparing a perfect game which is only ONE win for a pitcher as opposed to the triple crown which are complete season stats! And yes! It would be fair to say that winning the triple crown should give a player an edge over his competitors. Where would the Tigers be right now if Miguel wasn't having the kind of season most players only dream about having?


And why does Josh Hamilton get no mention in this argument? He has similar power numbers and is the only one in the way of two of the three arms of the triple crown. Granted his average has fallen down around .290 as the season progressed. He also has about 60 fewer pa's. Oh, and yeah, his team has the best record in the AL...And Cabrera and Trout both have talent around them too, so don't go there.
