After all baseball is a team sport, and winning, not compiling individual statistics is the object. I don't think anyone could argue that the Giants would be nowhere without Bonds, making him the clear MVP.
Pujols is obviously the fantasy MVP though, but there's a huge difference between fantasy and real life.

For one thing, Tejada put up his numbers despite having a very weak supporting cast other than Chavez, while ARod was hitting 3rd or cleanup in one of the most potent offenses in baseball. Because Tejada has so much weaker lineup protection, the numbers he put up last year are just as impressive as ARod's. Second, ARod played his home games at the best hitter's park in the AL, while Tejada played at arguably the best pitcher's park in the AL.
Since with ballpark and lineup issues taken into account, Tejada's performance was comparable with ARod's if not better
