The "Baseball Writers" vote for the MVP awards? Right?
No. Many papers don't allow their writers to vote for
baseball awards. This year, NO ONE FROM ATLANTA
HAD A VOTE IN THE NL MVP! The "2 votes" from
that city were farmed out to an espn.com writer from
Philadelphia, and another writer from Minnesota.
JUST FOR THE RECORD, Atlanta Braves beat writer
from the Atlanta Journal Constit., Jeff Schultz, was on
XM with Chuck Wilson, & SAID HE THOUGHT
ANDRUW JONES SHOULD'VE WON. Jeff cited his
defensive as well as offensive contributions. Not
saying every local writer always votes for his local
player. But, we know Andruw got cheated out of at
least 1 first place vote by BBWAA's scandalous,
