Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has finished as the runner-up for the 2022 National League Manager of the Year Award.
Roberts led the Dodgers to a franchise-record 111 wins in 2022, in one of the most dominant regular seasons in MLB history. The Dodgers finished in a tie with the 1936 Yankees for the fourth-best run differential all-time since the beginning of the 20th century at +334 and finished with the second-best record in NL history (only trailing the 1906 Cubs who won 116 games).
Dave Roberts finishes as the runner-up for the 2022 NL Manager of the Year Award, despite his Dodgers winning a franchise-record 111 games.
Buck Showalter of the Mets takes home the award in his first season in New York.
The Mets won 101 games a year after going 77-85.

Buck Showalter of the Mets took home the award in his first season in New York. The Mets won 101 games a year after finishing 77-85. Showalter’s Mets lost a close division race to the Braves, but still were one of the most dominant teams in the regular season.
For Roberts, he still has just one Manager of the Year Award, despite being the winningest manager since he took over the Dodgers in 2016. In his first seven seasons in LA, the Dodgers lead the league with 653 wins and just 380 losses. He’s the first NL manager in history to lead his team to the postseason in each of his first seven seasons, and has won the NL west six times — the lone second-place finish coming in 2021 when the team won 106 games.
