SURPRISE! A-Rod won the AL MVP!
Perhaps "surprise" is not quite the right term in this case - something more along the lines of "um, yeah" or "had this really not been announced yet?" would probably be more appropriate. It wasn't an unanimous vote, since 2 voters gave Magglio Ordonez their first-place points, but he still won by quite the landslide.
Now that we know that A-Rod will be a Yank for the next 10 years of his career (theoretically the remainder of his career, really), we can hopefully consider this just his 2nd of many MVP's he'll be rocking.
Yeah, and some rings would be nice too.
