However when stacked against Matt Holliday, for example, Holliday blows him away in practically every offensive category except HR's and SLG%.
Also, please correct me if I'm wrong in saying that they award it to just 3 OFer's and isn't limited by position.
Not a homer thought. And also, you are correct in that it is 3 OFers regardless of position.
