Mark Reynolds and Justin Upton get some MVP love

New, comment

While the anointment of Albert Pujols as the 2009 National League Most Valuable Player was the most foregone conclusion since, oh, probably Joe Mauer getting the American League trophy, there was some love shown for the Diamondbacks at the bottom of the ballot. Mark Reynolds finished equal 20th, getting one 8th, 9th and 10th place vote, to tie him with Yuniel Escobar and his fifth-place ballot [I'd like to thank Mrs. Escobar for taking part in this year's balloting]. And Justin Upton finished in 25th with a ninth-place vote.

A complete list of DIamondbacks to receive MVP votes can be found after the jump.
