A-Rod won the MVP. There's a shock: 54 HR, 156 RBI, 143 runs and he's a righty banging the ball around the Stadium like it's a little league park. I am stunned.
But he didn't win unanimously. Another shock.
Each AL city gets two voters who pick their top 10 MVP candidates on the ballot. Only the two Detroit-area voters did not pick A-Rod #1 -- a small sop to Tigers' outfielder Magglio Ordonez.
