MLB thinks the Triple Crown is basically impossible

Is there a tougher accomplishment in the world of sports than baseball's Triple Crown? Maybe!

Miguel Cabrera is on the verge of giving Major League Baseball a Triple Crown winner for the first time in decades. Over the years, many people have realized that the Triple Crown is more a collection of arbitrary and mostly empty numbers. You know who doesn't feel that way? MLB.

FACT OR FICTION HOT SHOT

It's cool that MLB is willing to RT the "best answers" to a binary question. That's special. Not as special as the Triple Crown, which is like a unicorn wrapped in string theory and nestled in Schrodinger's box. That thing is tough.

Mike Trout has had basically the best season of any baseball player under 24, ever. But he hasn't achieved THE TOUGHEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IN SPORTS, so I hope his Rookie of the Year trophy keeps him warm at night while the BBWAA picks their teeth with his bones. Thanks for playing, every other professional athlete, but the jig is up. Miguel Cabrera is your new god now.
