Click on this link to the BBWAA's voting results, and you'll find some surprising names: Raul Ibanez got a 10th-place vote? Jason Bartlett got a fifth-place vote?

BertFlex is here to remedy that situation. For just $14.95 (or its equivalent in bacon), we'll send you your very own AL MVP Commemorative Voting Chart, on which we'll type your name and favorite team. It even comes in lime green, just like the pros use.
