First, let's start with the Guardians! For the third time in his career (all with Cleveland believe it or not) Terry Francona has won AL Manager of the Year! The other years being 2013 and 2016 (is that one any surprise? lol). Only Tony La Russa, Bobby Cox, and the 2022 NL Manager of the Year Buck Showalter of the Mets have won the honor four times.
Unfortunately, Steven Kwan did not win Rookie of the Year. However, that by no means deminishes what a tremendous year he had for the Guards. The whole season and team was a thing to witness, especially with all of those rain delays and rain outs! haha.
Then there are the Cavs. What a nice surprise! They lose their season opener, then go on an eight game win streak! Granted they're now on a four game losing streak, BUT it is early in the season. We're still in 4th place in the Eastern Conference and 2nd in the Central Division only to Milwaukee. What is getting me excited is that different guys seem to step up on various nights. Should be an exciting season. GO CAVS!!!
