The Weekend Buzz while you were paging through the dictionary looking up these words folks are calling each other in the fierce Miguel Cabrera-Mike Trout AL MVP debate. Whatever happened to civil disagreement, I don’t know. But I do know how the awards should go. …

AL MVP: 1.Miguel Cabrera, Tigers. 2. Mike Trout, Angels. 3. Adrian Beltre, Rangers. 4. Josh Hamilton, Rangers. 5. Adam Jones, Orioles. 6. Robinson Cano, Yankees. 7. Prince Fielder, Tigers. 8. Derek Jeter, Yankees. 9. Alex Rios, White Sox. 10. Ben Zobrist, Rays.
