I'm surprised Holliday didn't win. Anyone else?

Me too. Holliday seemed like an easy choice to me; I find it difficult to say Rollins was more important to his team's success than Holliday was to his. Holliday didn't have Chase Utley and Ryan Howard hitting behind him.

I am normally all about defense being taken into consideration but Holliday just had vastly superior numbers. He was 1st in most major stats. People want to point out home/road splits. While his numbers weren't as good on the road they were not bad at all. A lot of hitters hit better at home than on the road. His road OPS was still as good as Rollins overall OPS. Also apparently people just forget the fact that Philly is one of the top 5 or so offensive parks(I realize Colorado is still the undisputed #1 but I dont see how it .100+ difference in OPS).

Rollins as MVP was laughable. Sports writers are idiots.

No, it is no secret that there is a huge Denver bias in the media. For whatever reason they hate Denver. Only ONE Denver Bronco is in the Hall of Fame, they do not want to give credit to David Thompson, ALex English, Doug Moe, or Michael Adams in the NBA. This comes as no surprise. Tulo should have won NROY, and Holliday should have won the MVP. Sports writers can kiss Denvers ass. 303
