Who is the true M.V.P?

This year 23 players in the American League received votes for the M.V.P award.The  winner in the end was Tigers ace Justin Verlander. Many say he did not deserve the award  some think it should have been Jacoby Elsberry  or Curtis Granderson or Robinson Cano. But when you look at terms of over all value to a team you have to  go beyond the stats and ask what was his over all value?To me  it’s a mystery that 12 time all star and future hall of famer Derek Jeter has never won the award combining great statistics  with great leadership,which to me is real team value.
