Joe Sheehan embraces his inner Iron Sheik

In his latest newsletter (subscription info here), Joe Sheehan riles up the rubes embraces his inner heel shares his postseason awards ballot:

AL Most Valuable Player

1. Mike Trout

[snip]

4. Miguel Cabrera

Fourth! I predict absolutely no one will get outraged about this.*

* I am terrible at predicting things.

Cabrera ranked 3rd in the American League in fWAR, 3rd in WARP, tied for 3rd in John Dewan's Total Runs, and 4th in rWAR, so Joe's not exactly alone in his assessment. Still, if I were him, I'd forget about being anyone's "plus one" at the Michigan chapter BBWAA annual banquet.

I'm not sure how much of his newsletter he'd want me to share, but to hear Joe's epic rant on this year's AL MVP race and mainstream sportswriting in general, check out his podcast with Rany Jazayerli from October 1st.
