Featured MVP [Jimmy Rollins]

I think when MLB awarded its individual single-season trophies, the only one I did an actual write-up for was A-Rod, though this guy was pretty good as well - I think what clinched the National League Most Valuable Award for 'JRoll' was his proclamation the Philadelphia Phillies would be the team to beat come October.

The fact of the matter is on pure stats alone, what Colorado's Matt Holliday did could have won him the award - but Rollins was the one who had to back up his word from the day the season started. If Rollins didn't lead his team to win the National League East, there would be more people whining about him winning the award [or at least yapping his mouth like another, typical professional, and something else athlete].
