Pujols Wins NL MVP

I thought Albert Pujols would win it by a greater margin than he did, with Ryan Howard finishing a strong second after coming on late in the season. The only Braves player receiving votes was Chipper Jones, who finished 12th, but did receive one second-place vote. I thought Chipper would have finished higher, but I suppose the combination of a 90-loss team and Chipper's power outage in the second half contributed to the poor showing.

Heck, after the shameful rookie of the year voting, I'm just glad that no NL writer voted for a player who was retired last season.
