Morneau named AL MVP

Posted at 1:13 PM on November 21, 2006 by Ben Tesch

The Strib is reporting that Twins first baseman Justin Morneau has won the AL MVP award, in what I would call a very surprise vote. He beat Derek Jeter by 3 first-place votes, becoming the fourth Twin ever to win the MVP.

The fans had decided long ago that Justin should win, but it's sort of a surprise that the sportswriters didn't pick the big-market big-name star.
