Where does Justin Morneau rank?
What does your AL MVP ballot look like as baseball nears the All-Star break?
It's out of the shadows and into the MVP race for a lot of hitters in the American League. Joe Mauer got the big contract in Minnesota, but it's Justin Morneau making a strong run at a second MVP. It's Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez who get the attention in New York, but its Robinson Cano pacing the offense. And led by Josh Hamilton and Vladimir Guerrero, the entire Rangers team is trying to escape the Angels' shadow in the AL West.
Consider the candidates below and fill out your own midseason ballot by ranking the first half's most valuable players.
