2007 SBN Baseball Awards: NL MVP

New, 6 comments

Every year, SBN conducts an internal vote among our baseball bloggers to determine the results of MLB's annual awards. Our votes don't really count, but it's a neat exercise to see if we can do a better job of picking the winners than the real voters whose actual votes we deride for being shoddy and misinformed.

I was only given a vote for the National League awards, but I will include the results of both leagues here over the coming days.

Rookies of the Year
Managers of the Year
Cy Youngs

My Ballot

  1. Hanley Ramirez
  2. David Wright
  3. Chipper Jones
  4. Matt Holliday
  5. Albert Pujols
  6. Miguel Cabrera
  7. Prince Fielder
  8. Chase Utley
  9. Jimmy Rollins
  10. Barry Bonds
Clearly, I watched a different baseball season than my SBN compatriots. I don't really have anything new to say about this, and everyone's reasons for voting as they did were hashed out on the SBN internal mailing list. Suffice it to say there are differences of opinion as to how to judge the "value" of a player, and a lot of people still insist on marrying the overall performance of a team to the individual accomplishments of a single player.

Your thoughts?
