2011 World Series MVP: David Freese The Obvious Winner

It should come as no surprise that David Freese was named the 2011 World Series MVP after the St. Louis Cardinals' 6-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday night. Freese, the hometown boy from St. Louis, had a heck of a World Series, leaving a lasting impression with a game-tying triple in the ninth inning and a walk-off home run in the 11th during Thursday night's classic Game 6.

In Game 7, Freese picked up right where he left off, hitting a two-run double in the bottom of the first to knot the score at two. For the night, Freese was 1-2 with those two RBI.

Not only did Freese play the role of hero for the Cardinals - he broke the record for RBI in a postseason with 21, with seven in the Series. He batted 8-for-23 in the Series overall. And for his efforts, he won a new Chevrolet Corvette, in addition to the nice World Series MVP hardware.
