I'll be brief here but you know what I think was a major factor? Rollins saying in the pre season that the "Phillies were the team to beat in the NL East". He said it publically, then backed it up publically.
That and also the fact that he is the only player in Major league history to go 30,30,30 (Doubles, homers, and Steals). Also only the fourth player to go 20,20,20,20 (HR's, Doubles, Triples, Steals). Add all that offense with the fact he is the best defensive SS in the NL. Add to that that the Phils never missed a beat when Rowand went down for 3 weeks, Utley for 5 weeks, Howard for 5 weeks, Hamels 6 weeks and Myers 10 weeks. Whats that equal?
