Good choices and really no surprises...similarly the Cy Young winners Dickey and Price were no surprise (at least to me) either. Dickey's win was a very popular one and I'm happy for him. A real nice baseball story. Glad to see a triple crown winner got the MVP...as one writer put it...it was a victory for 'the old stats'...which makes me very happy because as most here know, I am not a fan of sabremetrics.....too much analysis sucks the life and humanity out of the sport IMO.

The stats speak for themselves, when a guy has that dominant of a year you can't not give him the MVP. I'm a little surprised that Posey won in such a landslide, I thought it would be much closer than it was. The real question is how many years until we have a Twin in either the MVP or Cy Young race...
