Congrats, Buddy!

manageroftheyear.jpgHUGE congratulations to Bud Black! Today he won the National League Manager of the Year award by one vote. Pretty sweet.

Buddy absolutely deserves this. I thought he did an incredible job with the team this year. We were in first place for the majority of the season, and though we choked at the end there, it was still one of the best seasons ever.

Buddy had been managing here for about four seasons: two seasons, we were within one game of the playoffs. One of the other ones was horrible, and the other one was okay. But I absolutely love having Buddy as our manager. He is an overall great guy, and he knows how to run a baseball team.

The team went 90-72, ending up second in the NL West. It was an amazing season, but the end was heartbreaking. Thankfully, baseball is the game of moving on.  

Congrats, Buddy. You totally deserve this. Keep up the incredible work, and let’s get into the playoffs next year, okay? Okay. Good. Glad we have an understanding.

I miss baseball. I miss my boys. I can’t wait for next season!!!!!! 

GO PADRES!!!!!!!
