Pujols unanimous NL MVP winner

Cardinals star first baseman Albert Pujols won the 2009 National League Most Valuable Player Award. He received all 32 first-place votes, becoming the first unanimous winner since Barry Bonds in 2002. It is the third career MVP trophy for Pujols, who also won the award in both 2005 and 2008.
 
Pujols hit .327 with an N.L.-leading 47 homers. He drove in 135, and led the league in OBP (.443) and slugging (.658).
 
Pujols finished ahead of former Sox farmhand Hanley Ramirez.
