Yount in 1982 was the most recent unanimous MMP.

That's a crazy close contest for second place. 4 players within a point of each other. Wow!

Congratulations to Barry Bonds! As DL noted, this is Barry's first MMP and the first unanimous MMP since Robin Yount in 1982. However, this is also Barry's third straight NL MMP after finishing second overall to Rickey Henderson and Cap Ripken Jr. the past two seasons.

Congratulations to Greg Maddux! Maddux was named the pitching MMP for 1992. Maddux is the third Cubbie to win the award, joining Three-Finger Brown (1906) and Rick Reuschel (1977).

Congratulations to Frank Thomas! The Big Hurt is the AL MMP. The last first baseman to win this award prior to Thomas was Rod Carew back in 1977. The last White Sox player to win was Ed Walsh back in 1908 (though some guy named Shoeless Joe hasn't had his career accounted for yet).

Finally, congratulations to Roger Clemens! 1992 might seem like a disappointment compared to earlier seasons but it was still good enough to earn the Rocket his third straight AL pitching MMP and fifth overall ('86, '87, '90-'92).
