Dave Roberts Finishes Second for National League Manager of the Year

There was no sure-thing like when Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger won the Rookie of the Year awards.

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo was named National League Manager of the Year on Tuesday.

Molitor guided the Twins to an 85-77 record and an improbable postseason run after winning just 59 games in 2016.

Arizona beat the Colorado Rockies 11-8 in the wild-card game and then were swept by the Dodgers in the National League Division Series.

Lovullo received 18-of-30 first place votes en route to the honor. Arizona jumped 24 wins, finishing 93-69 in 2017 after posting the exact opposite record, 69-93, the year before. Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts finished second. Craig Counsell of the Milwaukee Brewers finished fourth and Dusty Baker, who was sacked by the Washington Nationals, finished fifth.

Cleveland's Terry Francona was second and Houston's A.J. Hinch finished third.

Ballots from two writers in each league city prior to postseason play are tabulated on a system that rewards five points for first place, three points for second place and one point for third place. Joe Girardi, who wasn't brought back by the Yankees, finished fourth. Nobody expected a postseason berth for the Twins - perhaps not even their front office, because they were sellers at the trade deadline. "Minnesota last had a Manager of the Year in 2010, when Ron Gardenhire won in the Twins" last playoff season; their other Manager of the Year was Tom Kelly in 1991. Turns out it was enough to give Molitor this award too.
