You would think that Bochy deserved it more, dude won the championship with a bunch of no name players.
all deserving candidates. if it had been voted on after the playoffs bochy would have won in a landslide.

Bud Black deserved it more than Bochy no doubt.

Bochy was incredible, but Black did it with much less.

Both deserving candidates..but kinda unsure bout them.
I really expected it to be Black and Washington. Good choices though. Gardenhire did a great job when you consider that he lost Morneau for half the season.

I expected Dusty Baker and Ron Washington.
We wuz ROBBED!

Bochy kept this team together while chasing a Padres team that seemingly could not lose.

Black lost it when the glass slipper turned back into a pumpkin.

Bochy was far more deserving.

Crap!
Let the San Diegans commemorate their cute season with a manager of the year trophy Black did a solid job.

Also thought Washington should have gotten it over Gardenhire, but both did a great job.
