received votes this past month were Wright's All-Star teammates Jose
Reyes (.373 with 28 runs and 14 stolen bases) and Carlos Beltran (.316
with eight home runs and 25 RBI).
...no offense to the golden boy, but I feel like Reyes got robbed here. It seemed like Reyes was on base every time he was at bat this last month, hit for the cycle and won Player Of The Week for two consecutive weeks. Maybe if he had brokered a deal for world peace while he was rounding third he may have been able to surpass Wright in the eyes of the voters...
