It’s Mauer. Only an idiot would vote otherwise. Fortunately for idiots, there is at least one party favor in the BBWA, because Miggy Cabrera picked up a first-place vote (but came in fourth overall). Catcher Mauer’s slashes EACH led the AL: 365/.444/.587. Read that again and remember he is a catcher. Wow.
Teix and Jeets finished second and third. Props and all, love dem Yankees, yada yada, but whatever. Smells. Bad. Lazy.
edit: Cabrera’s first-place vote came from Keizo Konishi of Kyodo News, a member of the Seattle chapter.
