Albert Pujols Approved By You As 2008 NL MVP

New, comments

Voting is now closed on the 2008 National League MVP, and you all voted Albert Pujols the winner by a huge margin.  242 readers approved of Pujols winning the award, with Lance Berkman second at 93 votes, and Chase Utley third at 70 votes.  Unfortunately, PollDaddy doesn't count the number of ballots submitted, only the total number of votes cast, so I can't tell you what percentage of voters listed Pujols on their ballots.  But given the the number of responses to other polls, I'm estimating his approval rate at about 80%, given 300 ballots submitted.

Here are the total votes for everyone listed on the ballot and their estimated approval percentage.  You all are a pretty smart crowd.  (Note that I accidentally left Ryan Howard off the ballot and there was just a bit Ryan Braun rick-rolling from BrewCrewBall.)
