Terry Francona And Dave Roberts Are Managers Of Year
Two managers with deep Red Sox ties were named as American League and National League Managers of the Year. Cleveland's Terry Francona and the Dodgers' Dave Roberts were each bestowed the honor by the Baseball Writers' Association Of America. Red Sox manager John Farrell got two first-place votes and finished fourth overall in the balloting with 28 points. Francona—who won two rings with The Carmine Hose—took his Indians to Game Seven of the 2016 World Series. Roberts, a rookie skipper this year, swiped the biggest base in Red Sox history back in 2004 and led The Denizens of Chavez Ravine to the NL West title.
