I targeted David Wright as my most common first round pick. His start is suggesting we might see a rise in HR totals, a stable .320 BA, incremental increases in Runs and RBI (given the Delgado factor), and at least stable SB totals - although the mets are showing they still love to run. Is 35 HR, 30 SB, 110 RS, 110RBI, and .320 BA out of the question? If not, Is he the NL MVP?

That's a possibility, but I think Bonds' games played will be so limited that his totals may not be there. There's only so much you can do in 100 games, and that may even count against him in the race...
I doubt Bonds will have enough counting numbers to win NL MVP (espcially if he sits out every time there is light rain in the forecast). Even if he is a the most valueable player some writers won't vote for him.
Wright has an outside chance @ MVP, but Pujols has the inside track.
