The Story: Forecasting the major 2013 awards.
The Monkey Says: A cool idea to try and systematically determine the winner based on voting trends and leaderboards. It turns out their math is good enough to realize that the BBWAA is still looking at the wrong criteria, thus their projection that Miguel Cabrera is a mortal lock for the AL MVP.
The Monkey Says: This strikes me as just a bit premature, but at least you can set your March travel plans well in advance now. Or you can just drive down for a weekend on a whim. Either way.
The Monkey Says: Meaning he is arbitration eligble this year. That was fully expected, so the Angels are prepared for this development. And by prepared I mean prepared to non-tender him.
The Monkey Says: I think I speak for us all when I say that this totally makes up for the Angels not even coming close to making the World Series.
