A Nate Silver post that is not about politics

And he even gets through it without mentioning WAR.

For baseball nerds only: "The Statistical Case Against Cabrera for M.V.P."


[Update 2012-11-17] Nate's argument evidently did not persuade the voters.

Cabrera, the third baseman for the Detroit Tigers, won 22 of 28 first-place votes in the American League, a somewhat surprising margin of victory over Mike Trout, the electrifying rookie outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels.
