Default OT - MVP trivia

With his selection as NL MVP yesterday, Albert Pujols moved into 4th place in the number of MVP votes received in a career. (Of couse, he's only 29 and has been one of the top 4 vote getters in 8 of his 9 seasons.)

What three players have received more MVP votes in their career?

Default Bonds with 7 awards has to be one

Stan Musial at one time was the all-time leading vote getter and probably someone like Rickey Henderson to close out the show

We have a winner!

Top three are: Bonds, Musial, and Williams. with Pujols now fourth.

(In Alberts 9 seasons, he has 3 firsts, 3 seconds, 1 third, and 1 fourth. Not a bad way to start a career.)

Edited to add: The other year? 2007? He hit .327, with 32 HRs, 103 RBIs and only finished 9th in the voting.

Can you imagine Bonds doing a couple years in Iraq and then a couple more in Afganistan and then coming back to paly ? I could maybe seeing Pujols doing it, but what Ted Williams did is so amazing it's a shame Bonds is even mentioned with him.

I don't see any of today's superstars doing anything like this.. Most of today's players feel we "Owe" them, not like back in Williams day, in which it was an honor to serve our country.

Not everyone, Pat Tillman walked away from a 3.6 million dollar contract with the Arizona Cardinals to join the military and was killed in action in Afganistan as an Army Ranger in 2004, he was only 27.
