    Nope, that was Bonds all the way. If anything, Bonds has been robbed of MVPs and earned the hell out of the MVPs he did get. You can make a pretty strong case that he should have two or three more of those things...

    Good post. It still pisses me off to this day that Morneau beat Jeter for the MVP in 06. That season was Jete at his absolute finest.

    People are mesmerized by the homerun I guess.


    We remember...

    It was hard finding 10 snubs in the past 10 years so I had to find snubs that I didn't necessarily agree with.

    Very hard to debate anything using the stats you've listed. You have W/L ERA Strikeouts for pitchers and Avg. HR's RBI's for hitters.

    Trout not getting a Gold Glove this season is pretty absurd.

    Your probably right but I was too lazy to write anymore stats and I figured other people could look it up as well or remember.

    Agree with all of them except for the Verlander snub.

    I don't agree on number 10 , 9 , 8 , 2. Those weren't snubs.

    Bonds was disgusting in 2003 - there is no way anyone deserved MVP over him during any of that 4 years. I'd argue Bonds probably got robbed in 2000 but Jeff Kent did have a remarkable year himself that year.

    Lincecum deserved every bit of that 2009 award - better ERA+, nearly the same number of innings, etc.

    It was Chase Utley who got robbed in 2007 by Jimmy Rollins, not Matt Holliday.

    The rest of them I either agree wholeheartedly or feel that reasonable people can disagree but it's close.

    Jeter .343/.417/.483 14hr(hitters park)
    Maruer .347/.429/.507(13hr pitchers park)

    both played premium postions, but only one of them was good enough to actually play it.
    1. 2007 NL MVP, Jimmy Rollins over Matt Holliday

    Matt Holliday .340 36 137
    Jimmy Rollins .296 30 94

    What a joke!
    in fairness you need to look at positional value, Rollins was a great defensive SS and Holliday was a crappy Left Fielder who hit poorly out side of Coors.

    It's easy to look at stats and decide who had the better season. MVP's are all about circumstance, not stats. Who was the most valuable person on the team. If you want to throw WAR up there than maybe we could have this discussion.
