Are you kidding me? Derek Jeter is the biggest winner to walk the face of the earth. Morneau's not even the most valuable dude on the Twins!
Just look at the numbers...
Batting Average: .321
Home Runs: 34
Batting Average: .343
Home Runs: 14
Jeter scored a lot of runs, had a high on base percentage and won a gold glove at shortstop as the Yankee captain. But really what is comes down to is the intangibles. Jeter hit .381 in the clutch, and perhaps most impressively, led the league in Biels .
How much more of a winner does the Jeter (who has 4 rings) have to be to get an MVP? His distinguished career is marked by him excelling in the clutch, putting out a cologne and in the past leading the league in Alba's, Miss Universe's, Jordana Brewster's and Mariah Carey's*.
*denotes "back when that shit meant something".
Should count for something.
As for Morneau, he’s Canadian. Also, he’s never lead the lead in Biels. Solid player, but leading the league in “Joann Smiths” or whoever, is not MVP type of stuff.
Canadian AND did not lead the league in Biels.
