UPDATE 2: I'm extending the MVP voting until the end of the day on Tuesday, in view of the extra regular-season game to be played.

You know what I'm talking about.

Jimmy Rollins just got his 20th triple, batting in a big run for the Phillies as they try to win the NL East.

He's now the only player in major league history with 20 homers, 20 doubles, 20 stolen bases, 20 triples, and 200 hits in a single season.

  1. Exactly the reason I have him pegged as MVP. From the "we're the team to beat", to his leadership, to his fielding--there's so much more than his (admittedly amazing) stats show.

    ... and I dare ANYONE to look at that plucky little guy and think "steroids" ...

    Why don't you include singles. You can say that he is the only person with at least 20 singles, doubles, triples, homers, and stolen base, plus 200 hits in one season. We can assume singles, but wow does it sound so much better.

    I guess it could be unnecessary, and get a little long because you can then add walks, AB, assist etc.

  3. If the tie-breaking game on Monday counts as a regular season game, can you please push the MVP voting until the end of the day on Tuesday?

    Thanks.

  4. Yes, we'll do that.
