Rodriguez wins MVP, but not unamimously

It wasn't shocking that Alex Rodriguez won his third MVP this afternoon. What is shocking, however, is that he didn't get all 28 first-place votes.

From Bryan Hoch:

A-Rod, who became the fifth AL player to win the award three times, did not win the coveted honor unanimously. Rodriguez picked up 26 out of the 28 first-place votes, with Detroit's Magglio Ordonez, who came in second place, earning the other two first-place votes. (MLB.com)
My reaction to this story is a lot different than it would have been a week ago. With Rodriguez on his way to returning to the Yankees, Yankee fans can celebrate Rodriguez winning his second MVP as a Yankee.

But we all know that personal accolades haven't brought championship No. 27. Hopefully 2008 will be different.
