I don't understand this?

How can a man who starts all of 12 games in a season win 'Player of the Year'? What about the players who have played every game? And played well in most of those?

He deserves an award for length of service perhaps, but this is the wrong award for him.

I agree.
No Fat Frank or Xabi Alonso in the nominees either.
Ryan Giggs has not been the best player of the season and that's what the award is for.
