Pedroia wins AL MVP

Top five, in order

Pedroia

Morneau

Youkilis

Mauer

Quentin

 

This is a rather poor showing from the BBWAA, as is their norm. As per BTBS' rankings, the top five most valuable in the AL are...

Grady Sizemore - 76 RAR

Alex Rodriguez - 69 RAR

Dustin Pedroia - 61 RAR

Joe Mauer - 61 RAR

Brian Roberts - 59 RAR

 

Despite a mere 2 run difference in value, Roberts did not appear on any ballots while Pedroia won handily. Morneau finished at 27 RAR, Youkilis at 50, and Quentin at 37. In the end, what stands out to me isn't Pedroia, who should have been a top five finisher, but the two I just mentioned - Morneau, finishing second, was a staggering 49 runs less than Sizemore, who did not recieve a single top five vote despite being one of the game's elite players.
