    I doubt Goldy wins, but if Lovullo doesn't win it'll be a travis-sham-mockery!

    Rookies should be a given.

    The D-backs have had a few rookie Managers win the award. None of them lasted as long as expected.

    I am happy to see Lovullo as a finalist. It might be best if he doesn't take home the trophy his first year.

    I like him and what he's done, but let's see how it goes next season without JD Martinez. Goldy is a finalist for MVP of the NL, but JD was the MVP of the team.

    It is like the old joke from Mad magazine about three pizzerias in one block. Luigi's -- best pizza in the city. Antonio's -- best pizza in the state. Irvings -- best pizza on the block.

    In this era of everyone uppercutting and the League smoothing out the baseballs, the GM plays a more important role than a good Manager by providing home run hitters.

    I see Torey winning and Goldy third.

    I love what Lovullo has done. But I hope he doesn't get NL Manager of the Year. It is a jinx for D-backs new Managers.

    And with no JD Martinez to protect Goldy and carry the team, we're going to have a letdown in 2018.

    I would rather not see Torey highlighted for a letdown.
