AL MVP Rankings: Which Superstar Holds the Edge with 3 Days to Go?

Is Miguel Cabrera the man to beat yet?

With three days left to go in the 2012 season, much must still be decided in the American League. All three divisions are still up for grabs, and there's a legit chance that the season will end with a three-way tie for a single wild-card spot.

The postseason picture isn't the only thing that will become final this week. The next three days are also the last chance for the participants in the American League MVP race to polish off their resumes.

There are really only two candidates, of course: Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Los Angeles Angels rookie outfielder Mike Trout. Cabrera is chasing MLB's first Triple Crown season in 45 years, but Trout is busy doing things that no other player in the history of the league has done.

So, with only three days to go, who has the edge in the AL MVP race: Cabrera or Trout?

Scroll ahead to see where the two of them and the other top five candidates for the award look in this week's rankings.
