That was my thought, they were gonna win, let cabbi have his triple crown. Although it could have been to let grand I rest. I liked how kc gave cabbie a standing O when they pulled cabbie. That's some good fans that understand baseball.

No, probably just a sign of being head by 12 runs in the 8th inning.

Here's a question, why is it on ESPNews they led in the broadcast with the Yankees, then O's, and now they're blabbing about the A's game. Shouldn't Miggy winning the triple crown for the 1st time in 45 years be the lead in story? Now I remember why I hate ESPN

Why?
Although it is cool, who really cares about the triple crown?
The triple crown is based on stats that people thought important like 100 years ago.
You know what has happened since then? People have become smarter.

RBI's is the most worthless stat in baseball.
If RBI's are important, shouldn't Austin Jackson get a piece of the credit.

This retarded stat is the reason Trout is getting so much run in the MVP debate. From a SABR perspective, Trout is having a superior season.

One can basically guarantee that if Robinson Canu on the Yankees had won the Triple Crown, ESPN would never let us forget it.

RBI's are important and I have seen serious sportswriters giving credit to Austin Jackson and the rest of the Tigers for actually getting on base. That portion of the Triple Crown truly is a team effort.

Regarding Trout - there is no denial that he is having a phenomenal season and should probably win the MVP.

I think people just still like the Triple Crown though because it's three stats that are quickly and easily understandable by anybody who has casually watched a baseball game

Certainly runs generated are important.
But I put RBI's in the same classification as Wins/Losses for a starting pitcher. A stat for the casual fan that doesn't understand the overall game.

I will argue that Cabrera was BETTER last year (higher OPS and OPS w/RISP).
But,
His RBI's were down b/c A Jax was in a funk.
