Albert Pujols, Cardinals: Near-Triple Crown winner had it locked up by June. 2. Troy Tulowitzki, Rockies: Spectacular talent could have won Comeback Player. Playoff failures don't count. 3. Ryan Howard, Phillies: May actually be underrated. 4. Andre Ethier, Dodgers: Six walk-off hits led league. 5. Hanley Ramirez, Marlins: Big-time talent earned wrath of teammate Dan Uggla for not playing through pain. 6. Matt Kemp, Dodgers: Starting to become the superstar that folks predicted he'd be. 7. Chris Carpenter, Cardinals: Nearly untouchable when healthy. 8. Adam Wainwright, Cardinals: League's leading winner starting to get appreciation he deserves. 9. Chase Utley, Phillies: Perfect 23 for 23 in steals to go with everything else. Teammate Jayson Werth also a consideration. 10. Matt Holliday, Cardinals: As soon as he got to St. Louis, the Cards took off.
