I think that is the common narrative, but I'm not sure I but it. Because Rollins stayed healthy and played all but 17 innings is a huge reason why the Phils kept in it, almost every relevant player, and some not so relevant spent a decent chunk of time on the DL: Utley, Howard, Hamels, Myers, Gordon and I know I am forgetting some others. So the argument about how good the rockies would have been without Holliday seems a little unfair to rollins, because given the Phillies health situation, we know how they would have been without rollins being the glue: not so good.

both are good choices. But in this instance, I don't totally buy it as Helton, Atkins, Hawpe, Tulo, Francis, Fogg. I mean I'm not saying those guys are better than the Phils or what not, but we did see what Rollins could do without his teammates, so for what it's worth...

I went Holliday. The tear he went on to finish the season and lift his team into the playoffs is how I think MVP should be defined. He put his team on his back, put up dominating offensive numbers, and took an unlikely Colorado team into the posteason. It sucks for Rollins, Wright, and Fielder, because they had fantastic seasons. If you would have told me before the season that Fielder would hit 50 HR and the Brewers would be in it until September 28th, I would have said MVP, easy. Not the case here though.

I'll take Wright. IMO Best player of 2007 in the NL and that is all I care about.

I think this one really comes down to Rollins or Holliday. Both had amazing years and were instrumental in their teams winning down the stretch getting their teams into the playoffs. I would have to give the edge to Holliday though who had the highest BA and most RBI. He was also an important piece to the teams success. Very close call though.

About 40 runs created behind Holliday/Wright/ and even a bigger gap with glove.

Very close call, but I'll give it to Rollins. He can do it all, and plays the primetime position of shortstop. He was huge in the final weeks to put Philly in the playoffs
