totw-girardi-duff-uclaThe polls are open to vote for this week's Tool of the Week. It is an all-media edition that features our own Dale Duff.This weeks nominees include the national media who continue to insist that Yankee manager Joe Girardi is the front runner for manager of the year. They not only mention him ahead of others such as the A's Bob Melvin, the Indians Terry Francona or The Tigers Jim Leyland, they almost never include the Red Sox John Farrell.

The Ticket's Dale Duff is also on the ballot this week after refusing to call the AL East for the Red Sox until they were leading by 9 games with only 11 to play.

The third candidate is the television technician who decided to have a cell phone conversation during a UCLA football press conference where coach Jim Mora was discussing the loss of a player in a car accident. Check out the video below.
