As expected, Barry Bonds captured his Major League record seventh National League MVP trophy this season, his fourth in a row. Barry Bonds was unquestionably the most valuable player in the league, finishing with arguably his greatest season of his career. Barry Bonds was walked 232 times, more than 100 more than any other player in the league. He registered 120 intentional walks, almost double the number that any other team received. Despite having more than 200 fewer official at bats than the other MVP candidates such as runner-up Adrian Beltre and third-place finisher Albert Pujols, Bonds had almost identical offensive statistics. Finally, Bonds had an on-base percentage of .609, an absolutely incredible statistic and the best in history. It is easy for any casual baseball fan to see that Bonds was categorically better than any other player in the league by a wide margin.
