And so the season has a happy ending after all.
Well, in this one respect, anyway.
Gardy has been managing the club since 2002, won Manager of the Year in 2010, and finished second in the running in ’03, ’04, ’06, ’08, and ’09. Who votes for Manager of the Year? Twenty-eight members of the BBWA (Baseball Writers Association of America. That’s who.
So apparently there are quite a few people out there who think that he’s a pretty good manager.
Funny how little Gardy has changed since he played shortstop with the Mets.
