What are Miguel Cabrera's odds of repeating as the AL MVP in 2013?

Gather around, friends. It's time to talk about the American League MVP award.

Don't worry, we're not looking back here. The 2012 AL MVP race is over, and there's nothing left to say about it that hasn't already been said a million times. I suspect we could all use a long break from it.

We're here to look forward instead, to the land of the great beyond known as the 2013 MLB season.

Regardless of what you make of the end result of the 2012 AL MVP race, the one thing everyone can agree with is that the 2013 AL MVP race is going to have a very, very hard act to follow. Even if all of us live forever, I doubt we'll ever see anything like Mike Trout vs. Miguel Cabrera ever again, for good or ill.

The stars of the Junior Circuit will most certainly be out in force in 2013, however. Here's a super early look at which players have the best odds of coming away with the MVP a year from now.
