Buster Posey won the NL MVP, winning 27 of 32 first-place votes. Ryan Braun came in second place with three first-place votes. Posey is actually the first catcher in 40 years to win the NL MVP award.
But let’s be honest, we were all more curious on who would win the AL MVP award – Miguel Cabrera vs. Mike Trout (or in other words, traditionalists vs. stat geeks).
Cabrera ended up winning pretty big, despite all of the arguments that Trout should win the award. Cabby received 22 of 28 first-place votes and Trout received the other six first-place votes.
