Hamilton seventh in MVP voting

Rangers center fielder Josh Hamilton finished a distant seventh in MVP voting, which was released 20 or so minutes ago. Dustin Pedroia, the Boston Red Sox second baseman, won the award comfortably. He outdistanced Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau and Red Sox teammate Kevin Youkilis.

Hamilton, who hit .304 with 32 homers and 130 RBI, received two third-place votes and was named on 26 of 28 ballots from members of the Baseball Writers Association of America. He finished two spots behind Carlos Quentin, the Chicaco White Sox outfielder who had 36 homers despite missing the final month of the season.

Former Rangers DH Milton Bradley received a sixth- and seventh-place vote, and second baseman Ian Kinsler landed a 10th-place vote.

So Evan Star doesn't think Pedroia is even in the top ten? That's embarrassing for someone who has the privilege of having one of only 28 ballots for AL MVP. Time to cover another sport or turn in the lap top.
