As much as I don't like him, Bonds was the right choice. Pujols dropped off down the stretch and the Cards went with him. Bonds, on the other hand, played it out the whole way. Can't argue with this choice.

If Pujols played in the American League he wins hands down. Only one guy better this season and it has to be Barry Fucking Bonds. Maybe next year Pujols!

Pujols led the National League in battign avg., hits, runs and doubles. Bonds led in slugging percentage, with Pujols in 2nd. Pujols is a much better fielder, and Pujols is not going to go to jail for steroids. The voters, as in most things, are morons.

Or perhaps you're under analyzing the statistics.

The key words is Valuable. Did Albert Pujols get the hits when they mattered the most? Did Albert Pujols add JUST that much more to his team by being there and get them over the hump?

Stats count for a lot.

From there though, how do you determine? Well, stats are nice and help you find the top contenders to the award. From there, you look at who did that extra things...

Bonds got the key hits, Bonds carried his team on his back when he needed to. Bonds was determined come hell or high water he was going to get the Giants to the playoffs.

Pujols didn't. Advantage, Bonds.

End of story. Bonds in a near sweep.
