Robinson Cano Gets No First-Place Votes for AL MVP: What a Travesty

Bernadette PasleyContributor INovember 24, 2010

I knew Robinson Cano would not win the AL MVP Award. I knew that Josh Hamilton had the better year. So, I wasn't surprised when the announcement came down yesterday that Hamilton was the winner.

What did surprise me was the fact that Cano got no first-place votes and that he came in third. That is so bush league. Robinson Cano had a better year than that.

Maybe writers shouldn't vote on these awards anymore. Maybe it's time for the coaches and managers to do it. Well, maybe not. There will always be mistakes when human beings do things, i.e. Derek Jeter's Gold Glove Award.

Speaking of Jeter, I think everyone needs to calm down. Pay no attention to all those quotes in the media! Derek Jeter will be re-signed. I guarantee it.

Well, that's it for me until next week, God willing. I'm off to Georgia today to visit my family for the Thanksgiving holiday. Have a good one, guys.
