Old and new school collide to dissect analytical future

The old school voted Miguel Cabrera for MVP: He led the AL in hitting with a .330 average last season, and his league-leading 44 homers and 139 RBIs allowed him to win baseball’s first Triple Crown in 45 years.
The new school voted Mike Trout for MVP: He hit .326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs, but had a WAR – a metric that factors in numerous statistics to encapsulate a player’s true value – of 10.7, which in theory made him the single most valuable position player in the majors last season.
