No. link According to ESPN's stats department, Jeter is some 15 RC behind Ortiz and doesn't even make the top 5 in RC27.
The MVP is Johan.

Will someone who voted for Carpenter try and defend your case over Webb.
In most aspects, Webb has had the superior season. Carp has chocked big time in the last few weeks and lost his chance at winning.
Webb has been consistently dominant. With only a few hiccups along the way. He struggled against the AL teams, with the exception of OAK.
If you take away his 8 games against CHC and PIT the two worst teams in the NL. Carpenter would be 10-7 with a 3.53 ERA. Granted Webb doesnt face the best teams but id take SF and COL over PIT and CHC anyday.
Anyone want to provide some stats such as Win Shares and VORP that arent as readily available.
Better ERA, More Wins, Harder Schedule, Worse Offense, in a Hitters Park = Webb Cy Young.
This is on ESPN re: Pujols... Pujols has 47 HRs, and 19 have accounted for the game-winning RBI. Howard a close 2nd in the NL, Justin Morneau in the AL with Dye and Ortiz right behind but losing votes since they teams did not win.
