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.
The Rockies won 21 out of 22 games down the stretch and Holliday batted .367 with 12 homers, 30 RBI and 29 runs scored in September. He also batted .429 with four bombs and eight RBI in Rollins' bandbox of a stadium, with two more bombs there while the Rocks rolled Philly in three straight.

Typical east coast media bias bull****.

Rollins pulled off quite the post season triple crown: He was handed Tulo's Gold Glove, he was handed Hanley's Silver Slugger and he was handed Holliday's MVP.
