Why do they let idiots vote on such an award? The Hank Aaron award should be a legitimate award, since it is for the best hitter in the league.

Let the fans have their own corporate sponsored popularity contest award.


they do ...

Its called the Hank Aaron award.


Hang on though, isn't ANY award that's not automatically awarded based on a specific stat to some degree a popularity contest? It's not like no-one's ever complained about baseball writers' MVP picks. In fact, they might even go with Jones as well. So who else is there to make the vote?

Apparently not. Just the most popular one. :-t



When did Jones become more popular than Pujols?

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

When ESPN starting hyping him relentlessly for MVP after the All-Star break.
