So That's Why He Lost

Derek Jeter lost the American League MVP to Justin Morneau of the Twins not because of some anti-Yankee bias, but because west coast voters couldn't spell his name right.

Here's the headline from today's San Jose Mercury News:

Jetyer settles for 2nd in MVP race

The Associated Press reports that if all Jeter votes were totaled with Jetyer votes, Morneau would have finished behind the Yankee shortstop.

In other news, the guy who voted for A.J. Pierzynski claims he voted for Jetyer too, but his spellcheck was broken.
