Jimmy Rollins is the MVP

After mouthing off in spring training saying the Phils were the team to beat in the East he backed it up by setting all sort of records for a shortstop. The Phillies ended up winning the division despite the usual terrible April start and because of the collapse of the Mets in September.
A Phillie has won the MVP 2 years in a row for the first time ever. If they somehow fix their pitching problems they just might win another World Series which would end the baseball world as we know it much like the Red Sox winning it all.
I’ve Made a Huge Tiny Mistake has the numbers argument.

thanks for the plug, but I've seen how some respond to that idea that we should look at more exact numbers than avg-hr-rbi and it's rough

You're welcome Chris. The number crunching in baseball has become more complex to the point of being absurd.
