Another day, another award. Today's award to announce is for the American League and National League Managers of the Year.

Here's how the voting broke down:

American League 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Eric Wedge 16 3 - 89
Joe Torre 1 7 3 29
Mike Scioscia 2 4 6 28
Mike Hargrove - 1 4 8
Terry Francona - 1 3 6
Ozzie Guillen - 1 1 4
John McLaren - 1 - 3
Buddy Bell - 1 - 3
Sam Perlozzo - - 1 1
Ron Washington - - 1 1

First off, I voted for Wedge for obvious reasons. Secondly, Terry Francona really got shafted, I think. Third, guess who voted for Sam Perlozzo? One hint: it wasn't me.

For the NL, SBNation voted for D-Back's manager Bob Melvin. Rightfully so, too. Here's how the voting broke down:

National League 1st 2nd 3rd Points
Bob Melvin 10 5 2 67
Charlie Manuel 3 5 4 34
Clint Hurdle 3 3 3 27
Lou Piniella 3 2 3 24
Manny Acta 1 2 3 14
Bud Black - 3 2 11
Bobby Cox 1 - 1 6
Ned Yost - 1 1 4
Tony LaRussa - - 1 1
Bruce Bochy - - 1 1
