So the good news is that 1 and a 1/2 Mets (Reyes and Beltran) got votes for NL MVP, although neither of them got any 1st place votes. The sad news it that one of those players is already gone and the other probably won't be on the 2012 roster.
Some other observations:
- I am really surprised that Braun ran away with this. I thought this was going to be a really close race but Braun beat out Kemp by 56 points and Upton and Fielder were in another galaxy (1 1st place vote each, more than 100 points back).
- Six Phillies? Really? I just hate seeing that.
- Some of these guys are just totally unreasonable. Who voted for Carlos Ruiz? Also Stanton, Castro, Morse, Votto, Montero? John Axford? John Axford wasn't even the most valuable Brewers pitcher. Who gave these guys votes? At best some of these guys had pretty good years but I cant imagine anyone giving them MVP votes.
- Six pitchers? Some of these guys didn't even get NL Cy Young nominations, yet they make it here.
