1988 Kirk Gibson is named the National League Most Valuable Player with Mets outfielders Darryl Strawberry and Kevin McReynolds also receiving first-place votes for the award. The Dodger World Series hero, who is the first MVP not to be named an All-Star in the same season, batted .290 and drove in 76 runs in 150 games this season.
2006 Joe Girardi, six weeks after the Marlins fire him, wins the NL Manager of the Year award when he receives 18 of 32 first-place votes in the BBWAA's balloting. The unemployed freshman skipper, who easily outpointed Willie Randolph of the Mets for the honor, is the first manager of a losing team (78-84) to cop the award.
