Minor League Ball NL MVP Voting Results:
We had 323 votes. The Results:
Albert Pujols 168 votes (52%)
Ryan Howard 83 votes (25%)
Carlos Beltran 40 votes (12%)
Rafael Furcal 11 votes, Miguel Caberea 9 votes, Lance Berkman 5 votes, Alfonso Soriano 4 votes, David Wright 3 votes.
COMMENT: I'm not surprised that Pujols won, but I thought it would be a bit closer than this. I voted for Howard myself basically because I wanted to recognize his season, although perhaps that's not the best reason and I might vote for Pujols now if I re-took the poll.
