2008 SB Nation Manager Of The Year Awards

I suspect the NL manager voting would have turned out far differently had it taken place during the postseason, instead of being required to be finished before October 1. Note that both Brewer managers got some votes.

I'm not sure if the vote for Manny Acta is serious, or if it's a sympathy vote for putting up with the disastrous situation in Washington all year.

As for ROY, the point system is 5-3-1.

National League 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Lou Piniella 9 4 2 59
Charlie Manuel 2 6 5 33
Fredi Gonzalez 3 2 3 24
Joe Torre 2 2 3 19
Tony LaRussa 2 - - 10
Ned Yost - 3 1 10
Cecil Cooper - 1 2 5
Manny Acta 1 - - 5
Dale Sveum - 1 1 4
Jerry Manuel - - 1 1
American League 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Joe Maddon 16 1 - 83
Ron Gardenhire - 7 4 25
Mike Scioscia - 4 5 17
