Everybody knows that the two-horse race between Aaron Judge and Jose Altuve for the 2017 American League MVP award is going to be the toughest of the year for the BBWAA to vote on. As it turns out, that was the case for us here on Home Run Daily.

Anthony and Seth voted for Judge while Mike and I cast ours for Altuve, making it a two-two tie. We then realized that this could not do and decided to let you, our readers, be the final say. We asked, you voted, and we have your answer.
