Flawed Voting System!

Tell me....

How does Lou Piniella earn Manager of the Year in the NL, over Charlie Manuel of the Phillies? Please, someone tell me. This is a joke and a slap in the face to old man Charlie.
Was it not Lou's team that was ousted out of the playoffs in the NLDS? I know this award is based on the regular season, but what Charlie Manuel did in Philly is fanstastic. They were not picked to be contenders....Chicago was. So how is it that Charlie Manuel gets shoved aside for that prick Lou? Very mad.
Joe Maddon (rightfully so) was AL's Manager of the Year. That of course is a no brainer.
-Sad to see Torres retire yesterday. I think we knew it was coming though. It will be interesting to see what Melvin does to bolster the pen.
-JJ Hardy's name has been getting tossed around the rumor sites as possible trade bait for a starting pitcher. Thus far, only #5's have been mentioned.

  1. The votes have to be in before the postseason starts so it was based off of that. You can't even take into consideration what happened in the playoffs because nobody knew. I would have voted for Torre over those two though.
