A-Rod Wins Third MVP Award

MLB announce Monday what the world of Baseball had known for months, Alex Rodriguez was named the American League MVP. Rodriguez who had a career year, helped propel the New York Yankees back into contention in the pennant race, as they made the American League Playoffs as the Wild Card.

Rodriguez hit .316 had 54 home runs and 156 RBI. It was the third year out of the last five A-Rod has won the award. He ended up with a total of 382 votes, far outdistancing runner up Detroit outfielder Magglio Ordonez, who had 258 votes. Angels star Vladimir Guerrero finished third, and then two Boston players David Ortiz and Mike Lowell rounded out the top five.

Rodriguez is still in negotiations with the New York Yankees on a new contract, after opting out of his old deal during the World Series. Both sides say talks are progressing in a positive manner.
