2009 SB Nation Awards: Managers of the Year

New, 24 comments

Every season, the baseball team at SB Nation gets together and votes on the same name-brand season awards that the official baseball writers do. We follow the same format -- AL bloggers only vote for the AL Awards, two votes per city, etc. -- and the same points system. Like the BBWAA, votes are due before the postseason.

Today we announce the first set of awards, the AL and NL Managers of the Year. Results after the jump.

Rk Manager Team 1st 2nd 3rd Pts
1 Mike Scioscia Los Angeles Angels 9 8 3 72
2 Ron Gardenhire Minnesota Twins 9 5 1 61
3 Don Wakamatsu Seattle Mariners 6 3 8 47
4 Joe Girardi New York Yankees 2 4 2 24
5 Ron Washington Texas Rangers 1 4 4 21
6 Terry Francona Boston Red Sox 1 1 3 11
7 Jim Leyland Detroit Tigers - 2 4 10
8 Joe Maddon Tampa Bay Rays - 1 1 4
9 Ozzie Guillen Chicago White Sox - - 1 1
10 Trey Hillman Kansas City Royals - - 1 1

 

Congrats to Trey Hillman on a noble finish. I don't know who voted for him however. My own vote was as follows: Scioscia-Girardi-Wakamatsu.

And here's the National League:
