Thought I’d start this here. I was reading along in the Athletic Stark’s projections here:
…and, then, discounted everything he said in the entire article when he ended with this:
" MY AL MANAGER OF THE YEAR “BALLOT”: 1) Cash, 2) Servais, 3) A.J. Hinch, 4) Charlie Montoyo, 5) Dusty Baker."
Seems like a well reasoned list.
I know Ohtani may be a hot button given his team’s performance.
Hell, I wonder if a league MVP has had a lower BA (.257).
But he gets my vote even though his team sucks ass.
With the Jays missing the playoff, I don’t think there’s a candidate from a playoff team (Correa might finish third at best) so it should go to Ohtani.
Judge! You’re forgetting Judge!
