The BBWAA Awards continue tonight at 6 on MLB Network with the announcement of the Managers of the Year. (Go to this link after the vote to see all the ballots)
In the American League, the heavy favorite would appear to be Boston's John Farrell -- although I remind you the vote is taken before the postseason. Still, going from last place to 97 wins should get Farrell the nod over Cleveland's Terry Francona and Oakland's Bob Melvin.
You would think Pittsburgh's Clint Hurdle is a similar heavy favorite in the National League, although Atlanta's Fredi Gonzalez and Los Angeles' Don Mattingly both won their divisions and Hurdle's Pirates were the NL wild-card. Still, I would have voted for Hurdle for leading the Bucs to October after 20 straight losing seasons. That should be an interesting vote.
