Vote: Manager of the Year

Buck Showalter Jim Caple, Jerry Crasnick, Peter Gammons, Tim Kurkjian, Rob Neyer, Jayson Stark ... and you, SportsNation. That's the panel of experts we're using to assess the candidates for each of baseball's major awards.

It's time to put the spotlight on the skippers, with Manager of the Year awards handed out for both the AL and NL on Wednesday. Votes were cast before the postseason, so Terry Francona and Phil Garner don't figure to win. Buck Showalter missed the postseason, but was getting the Rangers close to the playoffs enough to merit the AL honors?

Vote on who really deserved each award below, and the contrast your choices with those of ESPN's experts.

Monday: AL/NL Rookie of the Year
Tuesday: NL Cy Young
Wednesday: AL/NL Manager of the Year
Thursday: AL Cy Young
Mon., Nov. 15: AL MVP
Tues., Nov. 16: NL MVP
