Craig Counsell named 2019 Manager of the Year by Baseball America

Milwaukee Brewers skipper Craig Counsell is your Baseball America 2019 Manager of the Year!

The site credits Counsell’s savvy usage of his expanded roster for taking their managerial award. When rosters expanded, CC guided his team on an unbelievable hot streak that landed them back in the playoffs, even without the reigning MVP. The Brewers came up just short of winning the division, pushing the rival Cardinals to the final week of the season. Instead, the team went into the playoffs as the second Wild Card and lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Washington Nationals, just like everyone else.
