Here is one guy's attempt at coming up with something for every team, as in the spirit of the holiday, we should all be thankful.
McCutchen won the National League honor by a surprisingly wide margin Thursday. Cabrera took the AL prize for the second straight year by a comfortable gap over Mike Trout.
Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera won his second straight American League Most Valuable Player award Thursday, once again beating Angels outfielder Mike Trout by a comfortable margin.
All those who marvel at Miguel Cabrera can only wonder what he might've done this year if completely healthy.
Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen and Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera both coasted Thursday to Most Valuable Player awards.
M-V-P: Most Versatile Pirate.
Miguel Cabrera has a chance to repeat as AL MVP after being named one of three finalists for the award in voting by the Baseball Writers Association of America.
Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history.
Entering play Monday, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .356 batting average, 28 points higher than runner-up Mike Trout. His 126 RBIs were best in the league, too, eight better than Davis. In home runs, though, Davis held a 46-42 advantage.

Zack Hample leads the majors in hogging home run balls.
Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, 20, understands the responsibility that comes with his status as a rising MLB star, but he wants to be seen as more than a ballplayer. "I like people seeing the other side," Harper said.
Carlos Gomez ran after balls hit into the outfield and zipped from base to base with the same intensity, his big new contract apparently not affecting his style of play.
"It was the last two months. It was tough to play through it," he said.
Instead, he took a different approach: "OK, let's play through it and see what happens," he said.
