Presenting your 2010 National League MVP

Yes, I’m busy packing…or finding excuses to avoid packing…but I had to take a little time out to pay tribute to the Reds’ Joey Votto, who was awarded the NL MVP in a big way…31 out of 32 first place votes! I started to get a little doubty on Sunday when the B-R blog asked who should win and the vote was closer than I thought it should have been, but I believe the BBWAA got it right by selecting Votto-matic over Albert Pujols.

Yes, Pujols had a great year, and he is a great player. One of the all-time greats if you ask me. But this year belonged to Cincinnati.

Congratulations Joey…and I hope you join Reds legends Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan as a two-time winner next year!
