Because I think both selections were so obvious to me, I wouldn't have been surprised if both votes had been unanimous. I could see how some writers could have voted for Trout, but Posey wasn't simply an offensive force. He was the leader of a first-place team on defense and evn in the clubhouse.
You have to go back to 1976 just to find a season in which both MVP winners were in the World Series.
