Melvin handled the platoons very well, and every decision he made over the last 4 months seemed to work out better than expected.
Buck Showalter should have won, but this is hardly a grand robbery.
Melvin generally much better liked by press.
Yeah, I wondered if that played a role in the vote. Do I vote for the easy-going manager of overachieving club A, or the skipper of overacheiving club b who has a tendency to come across as if he invented baseball?
But that hasn't been the way Showalter's been carrying himself during these recent years with the Orioles. I've read a number of profiles of him and interviews over the last season or so...he's really mellowed out quite a lot from the old Yankees/Rangers/D-Backs years.
As a fan of an O's division rival, I'm going to disagree there. He may have been a little less Buckish this year as his team was competitive and in the race all season, but there were plenty of times where he let the insufferable ####### out in the previous two. And I wouldn't be surprised if the media guys get little doses of it all season long.
Yet the writers who covered him more often were much more likely to vote for him.
