And the 2010 National League MVP Belongs to Joey Votto

The writers got it right! With 31 of 32 first-place votes, Joey Votto was awarded the Most Valuable Player award. Oh, and whoever didn’t vote for Votto might want to look out.

Votto led the Cincinnati Reds to their first division title and first playoff appearance since 1995. Coincidentally, the last time a Red won the MVP award was in 1995, when Barry Larkin did the heavy lifting for Cincinnati.

Lots of fans, myself included, had some apprehension that Votto might be snubbed, as he had been for the All Star vote. Thankfully, he wasn’t. Because there was no way for fans to vote him in later.

Enjoy this one Joey. And I’d love to see you and Jay Bruce battling each other for the award next year.Votto is awesome

Time to #VoteVotto Again

Vote Votto!On this, the day we’re all expecting Joey Votto to be announced as the recipient of the National League Most Valuable Player award, MLB wants you to know that there’s another award up for grabs. The 2010 This Year in Baseball Awards has Votto up for best hitter.

I would link to or quote a description of the awards, but it’s a huge mess of unlinkable Flash. You can go here to vote for Votto, though.
