I read those quotes from the journalists, and since when did playing for a contending team become a deciding factor? It's much harder to motivate yourself when playing for a team that sucks, so Trout's performance is even more impressive.

If one of the categories for MVP voting is "played on a contending team" then fair enough, but otherwise it's not the best argument to make. MVP isn't a team award.
