Manager of the Year
*Jim Tracy, Colorado – There wasn’t a better manager during the season’s second half, and the Rocks nearly overcame a 15-game deficit to win the division against the Dodgers in the West.
Joe Torre, Los Angeles – A division title despite the Manny debacle and the rash of injuries, especially felt on the pitching staff. Classic Torre all the way.
Tony LaRussa, St. Louis – Kept a Mod Podge group in contention until the trade deadline. It was all beautiful baseball from there, until the postseason, of course!
