Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols has become the sixth player to win the National League MVP by a unanimous vote. The others are Orlando Cepeda (1967), Mike Schmidt (1980), Jeff Bagwell (1994), Ken Caminiti (1996) and Barry Bonds (2002).

UPDATE, 2:18 p.m.: The top 10 vote-getters (a first-place vote gets 14 points, nine for second, eight for third on down to one for 10th). The full ballot is right here.

1. Albert Pujols — 448 points
2. Hanley Ramirez — 233 points
3. Ryan Howard — 217 points
4. Prince Fielder — 203 points
5. Troy Tulowitzki — 172 points
6. Andre Ethier — 113 points
7. Pablo Sandoval — 89 points
8. Chase Utley — 84 points
9. Derrek Lee — 66 points
10. Matt Kemp — 49 points

Well done by Sam for nailing the MVP winner and the top candidates in a league he doesn’t cover. The guy was 7-for-8 picking these awards.

UPDATE, 2:26 p.m.: What a great bounce-back year for Tulowitzki. The guy’s career was basically left for dead last year when his home run total dropped from 24 to 8, but he came back this year with 32 bombs, 92 RBI and 20 stolen bases. And those Dodgers outfielders are awfully good, aren’t they? That’s a nice combination out in Los Angeles.
