Letters of Intent

There was not a lot of attention paid to Canadians MVP voters last week.

C Russell Martin (Montreal, Que.) of the Pittsburgh Pirates received 21 votes, while 1B Justin Morneau (New Westminster, BC) received two votes from voting members of the Baseball Writers of Association America.

The handful of votes did cause a re-shuffling of the all-time Canadian MVP shares totals according to stats guru Neil Munro (North Bay, Ont.)

Morneau’s two votes gives him 607 in his career and so the former MVP winner remains second all-time with 607 shares, 19 points behind former Rockies MVP winner Larry Walker (Maple Ridge, BC).

Martin, however, jumped from tied for 15th all-time to 12th and now has 22 career points.

The top five:
1. Former NL MVP winner Larry Walker 626.
2. Former AL MVP winner Justin Morneau 607
3. Former NL MVP winner Joey Votto 598
4. Fergie Jenkins (Chatham, Ont.) 230
5. Eric Gagne (Magouche, Que.) 217

The next five are …
6. Jason Bay (Trail, BC) 120
7. Pete Ward (Montreal, Que.) 119.5
8. John Hiller (Scarborough, Ont.) 94
9. Phil Marchildon (Penetanguishene, Ont.) 91
10. Jeff Heath (Fort William, Ont.) 79

The other receiving votes:
11. Goody Rosen (Toronto, Ont.) 56
12. Russell Martin 22
13. John Axford (Port Dover, Ont.) 7
14. Matt Stairs (Fredericton, NB) 2
15. Corey Koskie (Anola, Man.) 1

Jenkins leads in Cy Young award shares (214) and Bay with Rookie of the Year shares with 146. …
