Teixeira and Jeter Settle for Second, Third in MVP Voting

Joe Mauer was just announced the MVP after receiving 27 of 28 first place votes. From there, it went:

2. Mark Teixeira
3. Derek Jeter

4. Miguel Cabrera
5. Kendry Morales
6. Kevin Youkilis
7. Jason Bay
8. Ben Zobrist
9. Ichiro Suzuki
10. Alex Rodriguez
14. Mariano Rivera
18. Robinson Cano
21. CC Sabathia

Not sure how Cano made the top 20, but good for him, I guess.

Oh, and this marks the second time in three years when a Twin took an MVP award away from Jeter (this year wasn’t as close).

    6 players in the top 21. Yikes. This must be one of the best teams of all-time

  2. Good enough to win the World Series at least. I'll take it.
