The AL and NL Manager of the Year awards will be announced tonight, 6-7 on MLB Network, and both races seem likely to be close.
Especially in the AL, where strong cases can be made for Baltimore's Buck Showalter and Oakland's Bob Melvin. Chicago's Robin Ventura is the third finalist, and it also will be interesting to see if Tampa Bay's Joe Maddon, a two-time winner, finished fourth.
The NL finalists are Cincinnati's Dusty Baker, San Francisco's Bruce Bochy (voting was done before they won the World Series), and Washington's Davey Johnson.
Wednesday is the AL Cy Young Award, with the Rays David Price a finalist, and Thursday the MVP awards.
Details and vote-by-vote results will be posted right after the announcements on bbwaa.com.
