Manny Acta has had a lock on the 2011 AL Manager of the Year award since the middle of April, when the surprising Cleveland Indians jumped to the front of the Central Division. They have since regressed and are now hovering near the .500 mark, but their big gamble on new ace Ubaldo Jimenez and promotion of top prospects Lonnie Chisenhall and Jason Kipnis shows they're all in on this season. A winning record at the end of the year should guarantee Acta the hardware.
