*Players had to finish the season with the team (ex- Adam Dunn couldn't be White Sox MVP because he was traded to the A's, not that he would have anyway).

*Pitchers are considered solely for the Cy Young, not MVP.

*On offense the big numbers aren't all that count, as defense and base running are part of the equation too.
