Alex Cora received first place votes from both of of the Yankees beat writers: Red Sox manager Alex Cora didn’t end up winning both American League Manager of the Year and the World Series. Instead, he’ll have to settle for simply the latter.
Cora finished second in voting to Athletics manager Bob Melvin, who won with 18 first place votes. The first year Boston manager tallied seven first place votes. The award was chosen by a group from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Two writers from each American League city voted. Here’s who cast their first place ballot for Cora:
- Jen McCaffrey, The Athletic
- Rob Bradford, WEEI
- David Skretta, The Associated Press
- Bryan Hoch, MLB.com
- Pete Caldera, Bergen Record
- Kevin Sherrington, Dallas Morning News
- Stefan Stevenson, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Here’s a look at the full results, as Cora appeared on every ballot (collecting second and third place votes) except one.
