In a dramatic change from early voting, Brock Holt has surged far ahead of David Ortiz as our readers' choice for first-half Red Sox MVP. As the chart shows, Holt now commands the votes of fully 71% of readers—up from 42% in early voting. Ortiz, who had also garnered 42% in initial results, dropped down to 23%. Jon Lester continues to distantly trail both with just 6% of the vote. Interestingly, no other players on the ballot received any votes from readers. While this now seems like an insurmountable lead for Holt, we will keep the voting open. You can vote in the poll HERE.
