Rollins wins MVP
 
Holliday a close second.

That's dumb.

Jori 11-20-2007 02:48 PM

No surprise and personally I'm more upset about Tulo being shutout of the GG and ROY.

crush17 11-20-2007 03:08 PM

the vote was befroe the playoffs....we were all warned this was going to happen

Garcia Bronco 11-20-2007 03:11 PM

So what...it's baseball....and baseball don't matter. Besides it's a worthless award because it's based on the opinions of sports writers...the most worthless people on the planet next to Congress. Matt knows he is good at what he does...and really...that's all that does matter

Bronco LB 59 11-20-2007 03:11 PM

Rollins might not have been the best shortstop in his own division this year.

well aren't you just the negative nancy....

Paladin 11-20-2007 03:15 PM

Yeah, well, the Eastern Media. (Denver hating) ESPN and the lack of National exposure wipes out any chance for the Rockies to get any of the recognition they deserve. Be assured, though, the NL have heard of the Rockies........

Flex Gunmetal 11-20-2007 03:16 PM

How did Tulo not get ROY?
Oh ya, cause jackasses make decisions like these.

Crushaholic 11-20-2007 03:16 PM

I had to click the link to figure out who Matt Holliday was and why he was being discussed. With that, I'll leave the thread and let the mods do their job...:thumbs:

East coast bias is not a figment of our imaginations.

This pretty much sums it up

BMF Bronco 11-20-2007 04:06 PM

here's a blog I threw on myspace...

It first happened right after the World series with the none of the Rockies getting awarded a golden glove award. Um, newsflash, THEY WERE THE BEST FIELDING TEAM IN MAJOR LEAGUE HISTORY!!!!!!!! It is a travesty that not one of them were awarded one.

The Second incident was Troy Tulowitzki not winning the Rookie of the Year. Some douche bag from Milwaukee won it. This douche bag had over 25 errors in less than 120 games, where conversley, Tulo had less than 10 in 162 games! It was the closest ROY race since 1980, when the current format was instilled.

Last and finally, the biggest slap in the face was not giving Matt Holliday the NL MVP. He won the batting title, hitting .340, had most runs batted in, becoming the first player in over 40 years to lead in both categories, he also led the league in hits, total bases, and doubles. Oh yeah, not to mention scored the winning run by hitting a triple and then scoring on the insuing hit in the one game playoff to win the wildcard. Who won you ask? Jimmy Rollins, from the Phillies, yes, the same phillies who got swept by the Rockies in three games!

Not only is this a smack in the face to each of these individuals, it is also a smack in the face to the city of Denver, the state of Colorado and all of her fans! This East Coast bias that the sports writers exhibit is ridiculous and needs to stop.

You dont need to forward this on, you dont need to repost it, you dont need to do a damn thing with it, I just wanted to get out my frustrations and needed to vent.

thanks for your time,
Jeff

Paladin 11-20-2007 04:17 PM

So. Did anyone agree with you?

Binkythefrog 11-20-2007 04:22 PM

Being a diehard Rockies fan, I was more disappointed with Tulo not winning the ROY.

Holliday's road/home splits weren't as good as Rollins and Rollins plays a more demanding position. If you take Rollins away from the Phillies, they are a vastly different team. If you take Holliday away from the Rockies they are a different team, but the Rockies had Atkins and Hawpe and Helton to maybe pickup some of the slack.

Tulo losing the ROY was a joke, since Braun missed two months of the year and still committed the most errors in the majors.

Its crazy how in the ROY they gave the award to the more offensive player/terrible fielding over the great fielding/good hitting player, and in the MVP they gave the award to the good fielding/hitting player over the average fielding/awesome hitter.

Dumb writers.

Ray Finkle 11-20-2007 04:34 PM

Ignore the stats, Rollins had the better season....he was more valuable to his team.

RhymesayersDU 11-20-2007 04:38 PM

You know, I realize that a lot of teams that win games, have success, etc often times don't have individual stars and accolades. Often times, they are simply great teams.

But no gold glovers for the best fielding team in MLB history? No ROY for Tulo? No Coach Of The Year for Hurdle? No MVP For Holliday?

The Rockies got hosed, BIG TIME.
