Just like every year, the site managers of SB Nation get together and cast votes for the season's four biggest awards: Manager of the Year, Rookie of the Year, MVP and Cy Young. Today, the results are in for MoY.
|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|
I have a hard time arguing the findings on this list, because if I recall correctly the top three coaches are the ones I actually voted for. (It was either that, or Gardenhire-Wakamatsu-Washington...it was a while ago.) Even if Don Wakamatsu had won, I wouldn't complain--he got one hell of a performance from a team that probably shouldn't have had the kind of season they had.
