The NL MVP?
Considering the amazing streaks for the teams whose uniforms they wore, the National League MVP race had to be this close.
There could be no other finish.
But Philadelphia shortstop Jimmy Rollins, all 5-foot-8 of him, stood taller than Colorado’s Matt Holliday and Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder, as the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced the results of its final individual award given out this season.
Let me get this straight. The Rockies have the best defense in the history of baseball and get no Gold Gloves. Their team makes the greatest late season run in the history of baseball but their manager is not the best. Now the guy who has one of the best offensive seasons in a stadium not as run happy as others doesn’t win the MVP.
This is why the rest of the country doesn’t like the east coast. It’s because they have no clue. I’ll give Rollins the MVP, but no Gold Gloves? Pathetic.
