Posey, Cabrera win MVP awards, 3 Rays get votes

Giants C Buster Posey, the Florida State product whom the Rays considered but didn't draft in 2008, won the NL MVP award and Detroit's Miguel Cabrera, after months of statistical debate, won the league MVP awards.

Posey was an easy winner in the NL, Cabrera by a larger margin than expected over Los Angeles Mike Trout.

Three Rays got votes, LHP David Price, the Cy Young Award winner, finished 12th, RHP Fernando Rodney 13th and OF/INF Ben Zobrist 18th.

Price got a third-place vote, from John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
