I hope he gets it. He has been with the Yankees for 25 years. He knows the kids. He is well liked and is not as intense as Girardi.



Why in the hell would you want someone less intense than Girardi?  If anything, you would want someone to match his intensity or be more intense.

 It is all about what Cashman wants and it seems he wants someone who is more a "coordinator of experts and information" than a guy who eats all the information and then makes a decision. I would not be surprised if the Yankees hire multiple specialist type coaches to go with the new manager.

The manager's main job should be to coordinate the coaches and players with a common purpose.  One of the things I thought the team didn't have at times this year was a sense of urgency.  If you want someone less intense than Girardi, you'll see even more of that.

Man, I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when Girardi was fired. That decision must've happened on the spot, for whatever reason. No organization just fires their manager without someone else already in place, waiting to take over. This whole chapter stinks...unless whoever they bring in wins the World Series next year, like Joe Torre did in his first year...anything less at this point, is a big F on Cashman's report card for 2018!




Cocopuffs,....you know this is a Yankee Messageboard right? Yankee fans, who were born prior to the Jimmy Carter Administration are practically experts in Yankee-Manager-Firing-History.  


No organization just fires their manager without someone else already in place, waiting to take over? LOL....that's bologna!  Many teams have done that. I think practically every team has done that. The Mets just did it, and the Red Sox.


The thing about the Yankee Manager position, it's a coveted one. If the Yankees call Wille Randolph right now, he'll get on the first plane available to be at Yankee Stadium. Same with Rob Thomson, who is being interviewed today. There is even a thread posted not so long ago, stating John "Flash" Flaherty want to interview for the job.


The thing is, Cashman knows that he's got a lot to choose from and he's taking full advantage of it.

Girardi was good when we were up by 6 or down by 6 runs....he froze a lot when the games got close!  I'm glad he is gone.

Are you and Jinah related?   Brothers?  You sure act like him, but slighly more knowledgable.... Slightly.

He wasn't fired, his contract was up and they chose to find someone better.
