With St. Louis' World Series victory, the 2011 Major League Baseball season has drawn to a close.
The season had it's ups and downs, heroes and goats, surprises and more of the same old thing.
Each season, one player from each league receives the Most Valuable Player award. It's usually a position player, as pitchers have the Cy Young award to recognize their best.
Some teams recognize their individual MVP's and some don't. I based this list on the "Wins Above Replacement" statistic. The individual with the highest contributing number on each squad made the cut. The list is in ascending order, with the "least valuable" Most Valuable Player first.
