Mauer MVP

Post by sabrjay on Tue Nov 24, 2009 2:54 pm

Mauer won the AL MVP with 27 of 28 votes. The writer that voted for someone else should never be allowed to vote again. It's right up there with this idiot writers that won't vote for a HOFer on the first ballot because they think that no one should go in on the first vote. How retarded is that?

Mauer put up better numbers than anyone else and he did it missing the first month of the season. How huge would his numbers have been if he was healthy? Maybe that other voter would have voted for him then. To top it off, he plays the most physically demanding position in the game.

There's no accounting for taste, but let's not forget, when Yaz won the triple crown in '67, one writer gave a first place MVP vote to Cesar Tovar. While Pepe was a fan fave and an important part of those late 60's Twins teams, he was no MVP. I suspect it was a Minnesota writer who passed on Yaz in favor of Tovar, so I'm a little sheepish when people bring up results like the Mauer vote. Anyway, here's Cesar from that "MVP" season:
