Showalter wins Manager of the Year award

The award traditionally goes to whoever manages the team that came out of nowhere, regardless of the manager's actual role in surpassing expectations, but in this case Showalter deserves it.

I worry about the future of this team. Showalter's increased role in the personnel decisions bodes ill, and he has never aged gracefully within an organization. That said, he did a fine job between the lines, and his handling of the bullpen and patchwork rotation was brilliant.
