Cabrera lifting Tigers Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune I know Mike Trout has done historic things, but unfortunately his Angels team is also history, eliminated from the wild-card race on Monday, the same day that Miguel Cabrera's Tigers clinched the AL Central title. That's a difference-maker to me in the MVP vote. I will take Cabrera over Trout because one will play in the postseason and the other will not. Trout was a better player this year, and as such is a strong candidate for the Hank Aaron Award, but the Tigers wouldn't have sniffed October without Cabrera and now they have a chance to win the World Series.

When the Orioles signed Nelson Cruz to a club-friendly one-year, $8 million deal in February, executive vice president Dan Duquette was quick to point out Cruz's postseason accomplishments. And while the Orioles have reaped a huge payoff from their investment in Cruz - he led the majors with 40 homers and at times, carried the club on his broad shoulders - the 34-year-old slugger brings huge playoff credentials into the Orioles' American League Division Series matchup against the Detroit Tigers.

Verlander deserves it Jeff Schuler Morning Call The award isn't for most outstanding player, or player of the year. It's for the most valuable player, and last time I checked, pitchers were players too. Justin Verlander is on the verge of winning pitching's version of the Triple Crown, leading the American League in wins (by five), in strikeouts (by 20) and in ERA. Sixteen of his 24 wins have come after Detroit losses. The argument is that pitchers have their own award.

Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Kevin Durant spurned overtures from Under Armour and will sign a new shoe deal with basketball giant Nike. "Excited and humbled to sign back with the swoosh!" Durant tweeted late Sunday, referring to the Nike logo. "We are pleased to extend our relationship with Kevin Durant, one of the most exciting players in the game," said Heter Myers, a spokesman for Nike. A spokeswoman for Under Armour did not respond to a request for comment Monday. The decision ends the possibility, for now, of an all-Maryland marriage between the reigning NBA MVP, who grew up in Prince George's County and played high school basketball in Rockville, and Baltimore-based Under Armour.

Former Lake Clifton star Josh Selby was named co-MVP of the Las Vegas Summer League, the NBAannounced Sunday. The second-year Memphis Grizzlies guard averaged 24.2 points on 55.7-percent shooting in five summer-league games. He shot 64.3 percent on 3-pointers, and exploded for a summer league-best 35 points last Tuesday against Washington. It was a notable stretch for a player who has struggled to find a steady NBA role. Selby, 21, averaged just 2.3 points in 8.5 minutes his rookie season.

Single-A Delmarva infielder Nicky Delmonico was named the Most Valuable Player of tonight's South Atlantic League All-Star Game in Charleston, S.C. Delmonico, the Orioles' No. 6-ranked prospect by Baseball America, played a key role in the North's 3-2 win, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. The 19-year-old Delmonico hit a one-out infield single to shortstop in the fifth inning, then scored two batters later on Kevan Smith's RBI double to left. Delmonico then laced a one-out double to right, moving to third on an error by South second baseman Delino DeShields.

BOSTON -- Oh, the fine whine that will be uncorked if Albert Belle isn't voted American League MVP.Cleveland manager Mike Hargrove has said it would mean that baseball writers had an "agenda."And Belle has said, "The numbers speak for themselves. What else do you want me to do?"Fair question.But Belle still isn't the MVP.Boston's Mo Vaughn deserves the award, even though Belle was the first player in major-league history to hit 50 homers and 50 doubles in the same season -- a 144-game season, no less.

Washington -- On two courts on opposite coasts, a hard lesson was learned: NBA Most Valuable Player awards are hard to earn, and even harder to live up to. Nobody looked more like a future MVP, if not a candidate spurned this very season, than LeBron James did in the first half of last night's fourth game of the Cavaliers-Wizards playoff series. He was what Kobe Bryant had become for the Lakers, even though he's never won the award, and what bitter fate was denying Steve Nash to be, even though a second straight award is practically his. James, in fact, had been among the slack-jawed fans all over the country watching developments unfold at Staples Center early yesterday evening.

If Jim Edmonds experienced any culture shock when he jumped to the National League last spring, it never showed. He pulled on that St. Louis Cardinals uniform and proceeded to put on an all-round offensive show that clearly made the difference in his new club's runaway division title drive. That's why he should be named the NL's Most Valuable Player when voting members of the Baseball Writers Association of America mail in their ballots this weekend. (Baseball's major awards are not announced until November, but the votes must be submitted before the start of the playoffs.

Four days after losing a late lead against the Ohio Machine and falling into last place in Major League Lacrosse, the Chesapeake Bayhawks made a move geared toward the future. In the lone deal Tuesday before the trade deadline, the Bayhawks (3-7) acquired midfielder Kevin Crowley and a fourth-round pick in the 2015 MLL college draft from the Florida Launch in exchange for midfielders Steven Brooks, David Earl and Jon Hayes. Crowley was an All-Star this season, but his numbers are down from a year ago, when the British Columbia native was chosen as Player of the Year after finishing with 38 goals (three 2-pointers)

Maybe you heard about the tribute Kevin Durant paid his mother last week. You probably missed the one he paid his dad. Both came during Durant's acceptance speech after being named the NBA's Most Valuable Player. Maybe you don't follow sports, maybe you've never heard of Mr. Durant, maybe you think a pick and roll is a roadside produce stand. You still should see the video. In a voice choked with tears, Mr. Durant, a ferociously talented forward for the Oklahoma City Thunder, thanks God. He thanks each teammate by name, thanks his coach, support staff, brothers, friends, grandmother, fans, the sportswriters who voted for him. And in the part that will have you clearing your throat and discovering a foreign particle in your eye, he speaks directly to his mother.

Longtime NFL quarterback Earl Morrall, who filled in for an injured Johnny Unitas during the 1968 season and was named the league's Most Valuable Player for leading the Colts to the Super Bowl , died on Friday in Florida. He was 79. Morrall played 21 pro seasons and started at quarterback for five NFL teams, but he will be remembered as the ultimate understudy because of that '68 season with the Colts and the 1972 season in which he took over for an injured Bob Griese for nine games and helped lead the Super Bowl champion Miami Dolphins to a historic 17-0 record.

Standing by a bench late in the Ravens' season finale, quarterback Joe Flacco frowned and shook his head in disgust. An errant pass intended for and thrown well behind wide receiver Torrey Smith had just landed in the hands of Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, a missed connection returned for a touchdown in an eventual 34-17 loss that kept the Ravens from the playoffs for the first time since 2007. The interception, Flacco's franchise-record 22nd of the season, was a microcosm of his disappointing season, one in which he struggled mightily a year after being named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl XLVII and signing a landmark six-year, $120.6 million contract.

That Cal Ripken suffered a batting average loss of 72 points, a power shortage of 42 runs batted in and 20 fewer home runs, compared to last year's Most Valuable Player season, doesn't mean he stands alone when it comes to experiencing a below par performance after winning baseball's most illustrious individual award.Ripken concluded 1991 with .323, 34 home runs and 114 RBI. Yesterday ended a dismal overall showing when the numbers are compared. In 1992, he batted .251, had 14 home runs and accounted for 72 runs batted in for the otherwise surprising Orioles.

This falls under the category of unintended consequences. In the process of clinching a playoff berth for themselves sunday, the Los Angeles Lakers strengthened the case for Steve Nash as the NBA'S Most Valuable Player. With Nash sitting on the Phoenix Suns' bench wearing a jeans-and-sports-coat combo, the Suns were a mess. The Lakers made them look like a lottery-bound squad instead of the Pacific Division champions. Phoenix played without a sense of purpose, had no team identity. It was like watching The Sopranos crew while Tony was laid up in the hospital.

This would have sounded crazy a month ago, but as of this morning, the Ravens are two wins away from their third straight AFC North title. They have turned the season around because Joe Flacco has found his groove, his supporting cast has picked up its play and the Ravens remembered how to win close games. But where would the Ravens be right now without the trusty right leg of young kicker Justin Tucker? Well, they would be on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture in the AFC. Instead, they are 8-6 and remain on the postseason path after yet another bust-out-the-Rolaids Ravens victory.
