    Which is more important? Making the post-season or having a better record?

    Yeah, it's not like Miguel Cabrera carried his team to the playoffs (Trout disappeared in September). I know how making the post-season, RBIs/HRs/BA are irrelevant to Trout fans though.

    Gonzalez also went 1-5 and has horrible career numbers at Dodger stadium (I think his career average there is .217). Maybe that will change now that he's actually on the team.
