SB Nation NL MVP Goes To Joey Votto

New, 201 comments

Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds won the 2010 SB Nation National League MVP. Votto led the Reds to the NL Central Division by hitting .324/.424/.600, with 37 home runs and 113 RBI. Votto received 27 of the 33 first place votes from SB Nation bloggers, outdistancing Albert Pujols of the Cardinals. Pujols won last year's SB Nation NL MVP unanimously.

All you have to know about the Dodgers season is that 27 different people got a vote as one of the 10 most valuable players in the National League, and there was not a Dodger among them. Here are the voting results:

Points are awarded on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis, just like the BBWAA award, which will be announced at 11 a.m. today. Phil Gurnee and I each submitted a ballot for the SB Nation award. Here are our ballots:

  • Eric: Pujols, Votto, Halladay, Ubaldo, Zimmerman, Holliday, Tulo, Wainwright, Johnson, Huff
  • Phil: Votto, Pujols, A.Gonzalez, Tulo, C.Gonzalez, Werth, Zimmerman, Huff, Rolen, Holliday

Have at it, folks...
