Well here it is. My first installment of the Annual BBA Awards.
As usual we start with the Manager of the Year Award. This season the BBA has named it the Connie Mack Award in honor of the 5 time World Series Champion Manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Athletics.
The Websoulsurfer pick for the Connie Mack Manager of the Year Award is:
Drum roll please...
Bud Black of the San Diego Padres.
Widely thought to be the worst team in the NL prior to the season, after leading the NL & NL West for most of the year, the Padres finished with 90 wins. Only one game out of 1st place.
Bud Black pulled a rabbit out of his hat with this Padres season and deserves to be named Manager of the Year, and maybe the 21st Century.
So there it is.
I have had my say. Now what do you think?
