    1) Curtis Granderson
    2) Jacoby Ellsbury
    3) Miguel Cabrera
    4) Adrian Gonzalez
    5) Robinson Cano
    6) Dustin Pedroia
    7) Paul Konerko
    8) Asdrubal Cabrera
    9) Michael Young
    10) Derek Jeter

    Yes, Jetes has put himself onto the list with the way he's hit the past month. There might be others with better stats this season but it's entirely appropriate to use the ballot to honor him for his career.

    NL ballot to come soon, and I will update these ranking at the end of the season.

    I don't even know why I'm responding to this nonsense, but did you really mean to leave off the guy with an 1,102 OPS? (for the AL ballot)

    Obviously I disqualify anyone who is not on a contending team, so no Batista or Kemp on my ballot.

    Please post your ballot.

    I have been skeptical of Granderson but he's having a tremendous year. He's on pace for 150 runs and 130 RBIs on a winning team

    Great essay by Joe Pos why the "I throw out players on a non-contending team" logic is so ridiculous.

    The you can only be valuable on a great team argument has got to be one of the stupidest in the game.

    You want to use it as the final tiebreaker between two equally brilliant players? Fine, I suppose. But to be unwilling to vote for a guy because his team sucks? Makes about as much sense as the dingleberries that don't vote for anybody in their first year of HOF eligibility.

    Sub out a .500 pitcher (12-12) for Justin Verlander, and the Tigers are 65-68, 3 games off the division lead rather than 6 games up.

    You do realize that the non-contending Blue Jays have the same amount of wins as the White Sox and one more win than the Indians right?

    Is Granderson's batting average too low to win MVP? It's .277, the last player to win with an average that low was Roger Maris in 1961 (whose record Grandy might beat this year).

    If Bautista gets the Blue Jays into the playoffs I will vote for him.
