Miguel Cabrera homered again, bringing him closer to the Triple Crown chase that was discussed in Episode 45.
- Should there be a debate between Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout for AL MVP?
- Traditionally Miguel Cabrera's stats would merit MVP recognition, but Sam doesn't think they hold up to much scrutiny.
- In his 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at-bats against a pitcher in the same game, Mike Trout is hitting .293 (4 HRs), .368 (7 HRs), and .402 (9 HRs), respectively.
