Today, SB Nation announces that Matt Kemp of the Dodgers wins the SB Nation NL MVP over the Brewers' Ryan Braun. Either one was, in my opinion, a legitimate choice.

For the second year in a row, no Cubs were harmed in the creation of the BCB ballots, or, for that matter, the final vote. This should come as no surprise to any of you. We voted for the top 10 and points are given on a 14-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 basis.

BCB ballots:

Al:

Braun, Kemp, Votto, Fielder, Pujols, Berkman, Halladay, Reyes, Tulowitzki, Morse

Mike:

Braun, Kemp, Fielder, Upton, Halladay, C. Lee, Tulowitzki, Votto, Kershaw, McCutchen

Complete voting after the jump. This concludes our week-long series of SB Nation award balloting.
