I don't want to give away the surprise, so I've put the table after the jump, but the AL MVP vote was a close one.
My ballot went Bautista, Ellsbury, Cabrera, Granderson, Verlander, Pedroia, Sabathia, Kinsler, Adrian Gonzalez and Gordon.
Yay, we got it right. It gives me a little bit of hope that the BBWAA will get it right too. Congratulations to my SB Nation colleagues for making the right choice.
That one first place vote for Cano interests me, but I'll forgive it, since Bautista won. The guy gave Cano the first place vote was likely the same one that gave Texeira the 10th place vote.
Other votes that I'd love to hear the rationalization for are Brett Gardner and two 8th place votes for Paul Konerko?? What are the odds? You'd have to figure that those two voters talked it over.
Anyway, the right guy won and that's all that really matters.
