Barnwell: MVP Votes for negative WAR

By my count, 36 players have received MVP votes for sub-replacement seasons since 1931, when the American League joined the National League in adopting the current selection model, without any restrictions on multiple-time winners.  Highlighted players:

1997: Deivi Cruz, SS, Tigers
1997: Tony Womack, 2B, Pirates
1992: George Bell, OF, White Sox
1990: Joe Carter, OF, Padres
1974: Jack Billingham, P, Reds
1950: Ken Wood, OF, Browns

Colon, Gregerson, Gattis, Kendrys and Torii suggested as potentially getting MVP votes this year and finishing with negative WAR.
