1. Curtis Granderson and/or Josh Hamilton hit two homers in the final game to pass Cabrera?
2. Chicago White Sox sucked just a little less down the stretch? Instead of blowing a three game lead over Detroit by going 4-11 (none against Detroit but 0-3 against Mike Trout's Angels), White Sox were 8-7, finishing one game ahead of Detroit with Trout's Angels making the tournament instead of Cabrera's Tigers? Without Trout's Angels beating Chicago, White Sox go 7-8 and tie Tigers.
3. White Sox and Tigers tied and played an extra regular season game for the division with the loser not making the tournament and Cabrera struck out all four plate appearances leaving ten runners on base?
Would you still support Miguel Cabrera over Mike Trout if any of those happened?
