I know part of the problem is a lot of the league's top hitters are on teams that have been out of the hunt for a while now so folks are not paying that much attention to them.

Pedroia seems to be the pick of the guys on ESPN. They keep throwing his name out there whenever they show Sox highlights and he does something positive.

I almost forgot. Don't forget about Francisco Rodriguez either. He will surely get his share of votes since he is going to set the saves record for arguably the league's best team and they have nobody swinging a hot enough bat to warrant consideration. Vlady has the best numbers and he is not even on pace to hit 30 homers or drive in 100 runs.
