Miguel Cabrera tops Mike Trout to win 2012 AL MVP in a season filled with long-standing records broken by the slugger. After becoming the first player to win the Triple Crown in 45 years just weeks earlier, Cabrera went on to become the first hitting Detroit Tiger to win the American League's Most Valuable Player Award in 72 years. No one wearing the Old English D had done it since Hank Greenberg in 1940.
Cabrera romped to this year's MVP over Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout. Cabrera received 22 of 28 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Trout received the other six. Cabrera beat Trout in total voting, 362-281.
