MVP Again for Bonds!


San Francisco Giants left fielder Barry Bonds continued his
dominance in Most Valuable Player Award balloting by the
Baseball Writers' Association of America by winning the
National League election for the seventh time, including
the fourth consecutive season. No other player in either
league has won the award more than three times or more than
two years in a row.

By hitting .362, Bonds raised his career batting average
from .297 to .300. He scored 129 runs, the second highest
total in the league, and drove in 101 while slugging 45 home
runs to push his career total to 703, trailing only Henry
Aaron (755) and Babe Ruth (714) on the all-time list. Bonds'
.609 on-base average broke his previous mark of .584 in 2002.
He also shattered his own records for walks (232) and
intentional walks (120) in a season.
