The BBWAA has announced Clint Hurdle as the 2013 National League Manager of the Year.

It's hard to truly quantify a manager's impact, but Hurdle was an easy call here after leading the Pirates to their first winning season and playoff berth since the early 1990's. He received 25 of 30 first-place votes. Runner-up Don Mattingly had two first-place votes, while Fredi Gonzalez had three.

Clint Hurdle, Fredi Gonzalez and Don Mattingly have been announced by the BBWAA as finalists for the 2013 National League Manager of the Year award.

The Cardinals' Mike Matheny certainly deserved consideration, but it's hard to have too much of a beef with these finalists. Hurdle is the odds-on favorite to take home the trophy after leading the Pirates to their first winning season since the early 1990s.

Clint Hurdle was ejected from Friday's game against the Reds in the eighth inning, after arguing with home plate umpire Mark Carlson after Andrew McCutchen was hit by a pitch.

The two teams have a bit of a history with trading hit batsmen, and it seemed that Hurdle wanted Sam Lecure tossed from the game. It's the sixth time this season that Hurdle has been ejected.

The Pirates have signed manager Clint Hurdle to a one-year extension with an option for the 2015 season.

Hurdle is obviously already locked in for 2013. The 55-year-old was hired by the Bucs in November 2010 and is 151-173 so far in his two seasons with Pittsburgh. The back-to-back second-half collapses have been ugly, but he's done a pretty solid job all things considered.
