PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks may not have won the World Series this year, but they do have the best manager in the National League.

Kirk Gibson was named NL Manager of the Year on Wednesday.

Gibson took the D-backs from worst to first with 94 wins in his first full season at the helm and led the team into the postseason.

He is the second D-backs manager to win the honor. Bob Melvin won it in 2007.
