    Attention! Who is the AL Manager of the Year?

    Well, we can just forget about putting Ron Gardenhire on this list. That doesn't happen often. Also JUST missing the cut...whoever coaches Oakland, Ozzie Guillen, and the always awesome Eric Wedge.


    Several intriguing picks. Your call.
    Marshall: MILSWANCAs?
    Ted

    Barney: Circle gets the square!

    I went Jim Leyland. I dont think the rays will make the playoffs which eliminates them in my opinion. The tigers were the only team of the bunch that werent heavy favs to win it.

    Though if the Angels make it, I'd pick Them.

    this is close... im leaning manny acta, though it pains me a touch to vote for an under .500 team. still, that team had no business being anywhere close to .500 in the first place. maddon and scioscia are real close though, theyd be my 2-3.

    You all know who gets my vote though I have a feeling the award will actually go to Leyland who is also deserving.

    Joe Maddon was named the "Sporting News" AL Manager which he got in 2008 along with the Baseball Writers Association of America honors which won't be named until mid-Novemeber.

    Majority vote..only got this half correct. I believe Leyland finished 2nd in voting. He would have been deserving as well.

    I wouldn't have been bent if it had gone to Leyland, but very happy it went to Joe, I'm just mad about him!
