Stanton wins MVP over Votto, 302 to 300. 4th closest MVP vote ever.

Happy for BDS but Votto got robbed.

So how does the congratulations message go from Jeter to Stanton? 

Jeter: "Heya Giancarlo,  I just wanted to give you this gift basket and tell you congratulations on your MVP award. I want you to know how proud we are to have you on the Miami Marlins for the next 19 days"

That's a lot longer than most gift baskets get.

"But Derek, you already sent me a gift basket before when you took over, remember?"

I personally usually don't like someone to win the MVP on a team that didn't make the playoffs.. but this year is one of the few times I absolutely agree with the decision. The only thing I didn't like about this year for Stanton is that he strikes out wayyyy too much.. but 59 home runs and 132 ribs. I'd have liked to see the BA a little bit higher.. but you get what you get. Good for him, especially in a very tough year for the Marlins going through the loss of Fernandez. For the Marlins sake, I hope they don't trade him.. I just see no way that they will get equal value for him on the market.

I wouldn't say robbed. I would have voted for Votto too, but this was a close call. Really fun MVP race in the NL this year. I hope Votto can keep this up into his late 30s. Stanton gets more eyeballs, but I feel like I learn something whenever I see an AB from Votto.
