Konerko snubbed on one MVP ballot
By Doug Padilla
Paul Konerko was a solid fifth in Al MVP voting, despite one questionable ballot.
Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko was a solid fifth in voting for the American League MVP, but something seemed a little off about the final tabulation.
Konerko was only recognized on 27 of the 28 ballots, meaning somebody didn’t think his .312 batting average, .393 on-base percentage, .584 slugging percentage, 39 home runs or 111 RBIs earned recognition as a top 10 player in the AL.
