Dodgers Roberts beats out Cubs Maddon for manager award
Joe Maddon led the Cubs past the Dodgers to get to the World Series, where they won their first World Series championship in 108 seasons.
But Dodgers manager Dave Roberts beat out Maddon for the NL manager of the year award.
Maddon finished second, keeping him from winning for the fourth time - twice with the Rays, twice with the Cubs - which would have tied Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa for most wins of the award that was first given out in 1983.
Roberts received 16 of the 30 first-place votes and finished with 108 points, Maddon got eight first-place votes and 70 points. Washington's Dusty Baker was third.
Cleveland's Terry Francona won the AL award, finishing ahead of Texas' Jeff Banister and Baltimore's Buck Showalter.
Voting by members of the Baseball Writers Association was done before the start of the playoffs.
