In the MVP vote that was just announced (deservedly won by Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera), not one Red Sox player got even one vote.
That is the first time that has happened in the history of the vote. Think about that. Since 1911, there has been 93 MVP awards given out in the AL in various forms. (There was none from 1915 through 1921, and in 1929 and 1930.)
The Red Sox have had some awful teams in that time span. Even the 1932 team, which went 43-111 and is the worst team in Red Sox history, had a player get an MVP vote. (I'm betting that would be Dale Alexander, who won the batting title that year.)
Who do you blame for this lack of MVP candidates in 2012? Bobby Valentine, of course.
Just another reason to wipe 2012 from the collective memory of Red Sox fans everywhere.
