Is that Jim Johnson???
Yeah it's pretty bad when the last name alone isn't enough to identify who got a 3rd place vote on an MVP ballot. And Raul Ibanez... seriously. Half of a DH platoon that managed a .761 OPS against almost exclusively opposite-handed pitching in only 384 ABs. Gotta be the worst palyer in history to have received an MVP vote, no?
The Ibanez vote is really dumb. Actually this whole card is atrocious. Rodney, Cespedes, Johnson third... wow. The only more shocking ballot I have ever seen is the one where John Lopez cast a Hall of Fame vote for Jim Deshaies.
MVP and the HOF voting is so messed up right now. At least HOF voting can correct past mistakes most of the time.
