Didn't see this anywhere...

Per WSCR & George Offman, Ozzie has won manager of the year by a considerable margin. Said they'd have more details at the 1:00 update if any of you are interested.

Congrats to Ozzie!!! I was very skeptical on that day of his first press conference when he called out Frank but it has turned out to be an inspired choice by Kenny. And Oz is one reason I feel confident that if Frank can play it will be with the sox.

Way to go Ozzerooo- now get the hell out of Venzuala before someone comes after you with a machete.

The other day I was kind of depressed thinking about losing Paulie. Then I thought about Ozzie and Kenny and I got happy again. These guys are warriors. Congrats Ozzie!!!!!! Go Sox!!!

World Series Champion Chicago White Sox. Manager of the Year Ozzie Guillen. Executive of the Year Kenny Williams (no matter what some other idiot GMs say). What an amazing season 2005 has been. Congratulations Ozzie and Kenny and thank you White Sox!

Two sportswriters from each American League city vote on manager of the year, Ozzie recieved 17 first place votes, 5 second place votes, and 5 third place votes. That means that one person didn't vote for him at all. Does anyone have any idea who would think there were three better managers in the American League than Ozzie?

But Eric Wedge's team almost made the playoffs!!!!! I was looking at the voting results and seriously, who voted for Joe Torre and Ken Macha for first place?

You must mean the attendance trophy -- nothing else matters. Oh I am sorry I am on the wrong message board for that.

Just got home from work and heard the great news, but...

WHO ELSE IS THE MANAGER OF THE YEAR????

I'd say Ozzie was so obvious that anybody who didn't vote for him should be embarassed.

Congratulations Ozzie, it's a well deserved honor, and as one poster said earlier.....it's the icing on the cake! :D:

P.S. How thrilling is it going to be having Ozzie in the dugout managing the All-Star game next year? That should be a fun game to watch.

No Gold Glovers, No Cy Young Candidate, No MVP, Crazy GM trades or disposes of all the power hitters, A sterile empty ballpark surrounded by pot smoking homicidal maniacs, and still he "manages" to win the world championship of baseball! What do you do for an encore?
