    And Pujols beat out Howard in the NL.

    I was upset at first, and I'm partial of course, but after I thought about it I think it was the right choice.

    I thought you could have made a really good case for Lidge in the NL as well.

    Without Lidge the Phillies are certainly not even in the playoffs. And a perfect save record, a sub-2 ERA, opponents avg. under .200, and almost 2 k's per appearance are pretty hefty stats.

    If you're going to go by just numbers alone, and not include intangibles, then Holliday probably should have beat out Rollins last year.
