    I was going to guess Dante Bichette.

    I see there is a lack of response here, so let me provide you with the answers.

    Without detail, the player in question is Dave Parker,

    both times,

    in different leagues.

    I found that to be quite interesting, even having already known that a lot of RBIs will get you a lot of MVP votes.

    I read all of the names listed so far, and they are not what I am looking for... two cases of someone finishing in the top 11 of the league MVP vote, with a negative WAR, since WW2 (as that was as far back as I looked the other day).

    And, no, no one has hinted they knew what I was talking about when I typed the answer was quite unusual to me.

    Impossible. No one has that kind of knowledge of negative war seasons offhand.

  • WAR, what is it good for? (MVP votes question)

    Here's a good question for ya....

    I went as far back as World War Two... so since then (maybe even further back)...

    I found players who earned some MVP votes while sporting a negative WAR.

    And it's possible to finish in the top ELEVEN in voting, and it happened twice since World War Two.

    While naming names would be a good question in and of itself, there is an odd twist to the tale.

    Supplying the answer here will in turn explain why I thought the solution was even more unusual than one might expect.

    Good luck, and no cheating!
