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.
at the beginning of the season, virtually every "prediction" in the media and among the fans was that the Padres season would be over in May or June. they were one of the 3 worst teams in baseball in 2009, so nobody figured theyd even be relevant.
they proceeded to lead their division for 9/10 the season and became at one point the best team in baseball record wise. the fact that Bud Black got that much out of a team that was projected to be the Pittsburgh Pirates makes him well deserving.
