Barry Bonds is simply in a league of his own. Today, he scored his sixth National League Most Valuable Player award at the age of 39. Nobody else in baseball history has ever won more than three. Bonds has now won that many in a row.
Albert Pujols of the Cardinals finished second behind Bonds for the second straight year. Pujols, who contended for the Triple Crown this season, will win this award a few times himself before all is said and done--but only after Bonds decides to hang it up.
