Best Coach

Terry Francona

Tito won this category last year, only a handful of games into his first season at the helm of the Indians, which is as much a credit to him as a commentary on the folks coaching the Browns and Cavs. Francona then lead the Tribe to 92 wins — 24 more than the previous season — and a spot in the postseason for the first time since 2007 (when Cleveland eventually lost to a Francona-led Boston Red Sox squad). The son of a former Indians player, he's now the reigning American League Manager of the Year and the only major Cleveland coach with national respect and any sort of job security. Yeah, there's no way you weren't voting for him again this year. And he rides a scooter around downtown!
