On the ESPN Nation poll, Ortiz carried 47 of 50 states over Arod in the MVP voting, a Reaganesque victory. The only states to support Arod were NY, NJ (which both make sense) and Missouri (which makes none.) We can only assume that Missouri, home to Dick Gephardt, who has a gay daughter, has a large homosexual population. Only possible explanation. Either that or the people of Missouri were too busy shopping for thanksgiving flowers to pay attention to Papi's clutch hitting all season. Ka-ching.
