I would say player 1, but I guess a lot would depend on how valuable those numbers were to his individual team.

The only way I vote for player 2 is if player 1 was surrounded by guys with similar totals, but player 2 was the biggest reason his team was even contending at all.

later.........

This really isn't a trick question. They were both definately *the* stars on their teams...

Just curious how everyone would go.

Okay fine, I'll even tell you... Player1 is Ted Williams and Player2 is Joe Dimaggio. :w00t
Does it change your vote?

I think I will give the MVP to the player that has improved more his team. I would give it to player 1 because of his stats.

That's correct, Das.

The year is 1947.

Ted Williams wins the Triple Crown, but Dimaggio wins the MVP based on his hitting streak.

Kinda sad, actually. But, this is a perfect example of how screwey MVP voting can be. Can you imagine winning the Triple Crown and *STILL* not winning an MVP?!
