Cubs News: David Ross finishes third in NL Manager of the Year voting


by - Senior Editor -

MLB Network announced on Tuesday that Don Mattingly won the National League Manager of the Year Award over finalists Jayce Tingler and David Ross.

Mattingly finished with 20 first-place votes and 124 total votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of American while Tingler had six first-place votes and 71 points.

Mattingly is the fifth former winner of the MVP to be honored later as a manager of the year.

Ross finished third in the voting with one first place, two second-place, and 14 third-place votes for a total of 25 points.

Pretty impressive performance by the rookie manager leading his team to a first-place finish in the NL League Central in the middle of a COVID-19 pandemic.

It appears that the Cubs have found their skipper for the long term if year one under Rossy was any indication.
