<P>FOX Sports com tabs its Managers of the Year winners</P>
<P></P>
<P>Farrell not only led the Sox to a World Series title, he steered a turnaround from last place to first in the AL East. One year after Boston struggled through a 69 93 campaign with Bobby Valentine at the helm, Farrell stepped in and led the club to a 97 65 mark, which tied the St. Kids Tony Kukoc Jersey Louis Cardinals for the best record Tony Kukoc M Jersey in the majors. Farrell had coached the Red Sox pitchers from 2007 10, before leaving for a two year stint as Toronto skipper before his return to Boston this season.</P>

<P>Terry Francona, Cleveland Indians</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Indians went 21 6 in September to catapult into one of the two AL wild card spots before losing to the Tampa Bay Rays in the one game playoff. It was Cleveland's first postseason appearance since 2007 as Francona, in his first year with the club, led the Indians to a 92 70 regular season finish 24 games better than the year before when they went 68 94 in Manny Acta's final campaign.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Braves opened the season 12 1 and never looked back, winning the NL East with a 96 66 record. More impressive is that Gonzalez's club, which sat in first Kids Taj Gibson Jersey place all but one day, did so without an MVP or Cy Young candidate and battled several key injuries throughout the season. It marked Atlanta's first division crown since 2005.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Clint Hurdle, Pittsburgh Pirates</P>
<P></P>
<P>"Raise the Jolly Roger" was a common saying for the Bucs this season as they clinched the No. 1 NL wild card berth and made the postseason for the first time since 1992. It was also the Pirates' first winning season since '92. Hurdle's club beat the Cincinnati Reds Taj Gibson 5XL Jersey in the one game playoff before falling to the St. Louis Cardinals three games to two in the NLDS.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Don Mattingly, Los Angeles Dodgers</P>
<P></P>
<P>With his club in last place in mid May, Donnie Baseball was on the hot seat and rumors were rampant that he wouldn't make it to the All Star break. But talk about a hot streak. The Dodgers tied a modern day 50 game record by going 42 8 from June 22 to Aug. 17 to build a commanding lead and run away with the NL West title.</P>
