MLB Cox wins 3rd manager award; Showalter gets 2nd. It's his 3rd time winning the Manager of the Year award. It's the 2nd time he's won the award in Atlanta. It's the first time since the worst to first year in 1991, but he probably should have won in 1999 and other times also. Buck Showalter won in the AL for turning Texas into a contender. It's his 2nd time as MOY.
