SB Nation Baseball Awards: Jose Bautista Wins American League MVP Award

Is his back foot in the air?

Today, we publish the 4th SB Nation Baseball Award, the American League MVP, and Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista narrowly beat out Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury to win the award. I am surprised as Ellsbury's breakout year won me over this season.

Jason submitted the AL MVP ballot for Fake Teams and here is how he voted:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, BOS

2. Curtis Granderson, NYY

3. Justin Verlander, DET

4. Jose Bautista, TOR

5. Miguel Cabrera, DET

6. Ian Kinsler, TEX

7. Dustin Pedroia, BOS

8. Adrian Gonzalez, BOS

9. Robinson Cano, NYY

10. Ben Zobrist, TB

A look at the results for all of SB Nation's baseball writers after the jump:
