We just recently completed the first annual BBA awards for the 2009 season. Let me first say that it was a blast to vote and be a part of this, and even if I didn’t always agree with the consensus, I was more than happy to see that the results mostly jived with my thinking. We’ve got a solid group of forward thinking bloggers here, and I hope that we can continue doing this in the future so we can continue to see the insight of the true fans of the game in the awards voting.
Without further ado, here are your 2009 BBA Awards Winners:
2009 NL Manager of the Year: Jim Tracy, Colorado Rockies
