Tomorrow, we turn our calendars to July. The start of the seventh Gregorian month isn't the precise midway point of the MLB season, but it's a symbolic transition, one that causes fans to say, "Wow, only three months left!"
Even if it's not precisely the halfway point, it's still a great time to start thinking about individual awards. Last week, Bleacher Report's Featured Columnists kicked off the celebration with Cy Young voting for both the AL and the NL.
And so, this week, we put on a mock MVP vote. The AL results are here, and the NL results will be posted tomorrow.
The top 10 vote-getters are highlighted in this slideshow. This contest was insanely close—in a system where a first-place vote is worth 14 points, the winner's margin of victory was only four points.
If your favorite player isn't among the leaders, click through to the full results. Chances are, he got at least a couple votes.
Thanks to everyone who voted and submitted commentary!
Note: I sent this survey only to the Featured Columnists who have been active in previous polls. If you are a new FC or you have changed your mind about wanting to participate, send me a message and I'll be sure to keep you in the loop for next time!
