He beat out Dusty by one point.

Pretty disappointing considering San Diego's collapse which led to them missing the playoffs. I think Dusty was robbed, but I'm biased obviously.

Can't complain. Black did a heck of a job with a tiny payroll, less than half of what Baker had to work with.

But I would have liked Dusty to win. Really stinks that he lost by one vote. :(

Could it be that the voters actually could see who the better manager actually is?

I'm more surprised that Bruce didn't get it.

I think the voters start to make up their minds mid season and sometimes make thier decision before the season ends. Padres had a 10 game losing streak, Black should not have won. When Girardi won, voters made up their minds, before the Marlins poor finish.

This is why I don't think the Red's Central crown, makes and MVP Votto shoe in. Pujols had a monster August, and was the preseason favorite. In September the writers focus on thier own team's division races.

i think well deserved. the padres were considered one of the worst teams in baseball going into the season and end up w/ a chance to win the division on the final weekend pretty remarkable.

Congrats to the dust bucket on his 2nd place finish. Don't know how he would have split it w/ Rolen if he would have won though.

I don't think you're being Biased. I think that San Diego Team collapsed while the Reds could of Collapsed after the St. Louis Sweep.

I hate Dusty has Manager. But!

He didn't let the team go down after the St.Louis Sweep.

Bud Black is a Great Guy, Great Manager, Great Pitching Coach but his team did one thing at the end of the season.

Collapsed.

The Sportswriters messed this one up Bad.

I am not Biased, because I don't Like Dusty being the Reds Manager.
