 Albert Pujols has won his 3rd MVP title. He won unanimously giving him the 2009 National League MVP.

Pujols was on the top of almost every list in the National League:

 Batting Avg. .327 (3rd)

Home runs 47 (1st)

 Runs 124 (1st)

slugging % .658 (1st)

Intentional BBs 44 (1st)

OBP .443 (1st)

RBI 135 (3rd)

Doubles 45 (2nd)

 He was also amazing with the bases loaded. 10 for 17 with 5 Grand Slams, 3 2B and 35 RBI.

At 29 Pujols is still on his way to making it to the Hall of Fame. He cannot be denied the way he has played throughout his career.

In late October he had surgery to remove a bone spur in his right elbow but it did not end up to be anything alarming that would put the next season in jeopardy.

There have only been 15 other MVPs that have received every vote.
