Jimmy Rollins is the 2007 National League MVP!

Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Jimmy Rollins has been named the 2007 National League MVP, beating out Colorado Rockies outfielder Matt Holliday.Rollins was the catalyst in a season that saw the Phils reach the postseason for the first time in 14 years. Rollins would go on record prior to the season stating that the Phillies were the team to beat in the National League East Division. Rollins drew the ire of the rival N.Y. Mets who were picked to win the division but coughed it up in the final two weeks of the season giving the Phillies the division crown and Rollins Cleo status.

The Phillies opened the season without last season’s MVP Ryan Howard for several games and down the stretch were without Chase Utley for a month, who at the time of his injury was the leading MVP candidate. Throughout the season J-Roll was the one constant that manager Charlie Manuel could count on.

Rollins season was one of the best ever by a shortstop or anyone for that matter his numbers are as follows: 716AB (All-time record) 139 Runs, 212 Hits, 38 2B, 20 3B, 30 HR(4th player in Major League History with 20 or more doubles, triples and home runs), 94RBI’s, 41 SB, .296 Avg., .344 On Base %, .531 Slugging %.

Rollins adds the MVP award to his 2007 Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.
