Before we dive into things, I just want to take a moment to remember Frank Robinson, a true trailblazer who passed away today. I was too young to see him as a Giants manager, but I remember him with the Expos. And he seemed like the gruffest, crankiest, stick-in-the-mud, “Why am I here?” manager ever...and I loved it. This is my favorite moment of his at Oracle Park (then-SBC):

I just...I love it. That is the greatest visiting manager moment ever. I can’t imagine any cinematic baseball manager being that gruff; not Jimmy Dugan, not Lou Brown, not Joe Riggins...none of them. I need to write a manager like Frank Robinson into one of my novels....

Okay, back to the list! We had a close one, between Malique Ziegler and Yorlis Rodriguez...but not close enough for a run-off (3 vote difference). So...Malique wins spot number 38!

I present the updated list!
