BDD: MVP Award Should Be Vaguely-Defined

At BDD, I revisit the Rosenthal debate from a different angle. Click here to read it.

Were we to take the voting out of the hands of the BBWAA and mechanically dole out awards, for instance, then how would MLB ever cultivate any interest in the awards? Would anyone stand around the water cooler and simply chirp agreement with The Award Machine (for to disagree with it you would be akin to a flat-earther)? Would writers and bloggers take the time to write a post about “it got it right again”?
