The Baseball Writers' Association of America Awards continue tonight at 6 on the MLB Network with the announcement of the AL and NL Manager of the Year.
The AL finalists are Baltimore's Buck Showalter, Chicago's Robin Ventura and Oakland's Bob Melvin while the NL finalists are Washington's Davey Johnson, Cincinnati's Dusty Baker and San Francisco's Bruce Bochy. (All voting is done prior to the postseason, so Bochy won't get any bump from the Giants' World Series run.).
The winners are announced live on the air at 6:17 and 6:47 p.m. and concurrently on the writers' official site at BBWAA.com. That site will also list the voter-by-voter ballots, which proved to be pretty interesting in the tight NL Rookie of the Year voting that Bryce Harper won Monday over Wade Miley and Todd Frazier.
I made my picks in Sunday's Inside Baseball column and I think we're going to have a double-Beltway sweep tonight with Showalter and Johnson getting the awards.
On Wednesday, it will be the Cy Young Awards and on Thursday, we finally get the answer to the Trout-Cabrera question when the MVPs are announced.
Here's MLBNet's look at the Manager candidates. And be sure to vote in our polls below.
