Do any of the voters really look at defense, though?

Sure, some do.  Barry Larkin won the MVP in 1995 based almost solely on defense and stolen bases, and Trout is having a much better year with defense and speed just as good.  It doesn't happen often, but it happens.


Larkin won but the Reds also finished in first.
