Joe Mauer wins the 2009 AL MVP

My only complaint is that it wasn't unanimous, but at least Joe Mauer will be walking away with his much-deserved hardware. He received 27 of 28 first place votes, and was the overwhelming choice for 2009 AL MVP.

Miguel Cabrera inexplicably received the only other 1st place vote, which makes no sense whatsoever, since his late-season idiocy might have cost his team a shot to win their division. He was too busy drinking all night and fighting with his wife, and Mauer's Twins ended up passing the Tigers at the end of the year. That's why Mauer's the MVP, and the writer who voted for Cabrera is a jackass.
