Why am I not hearing his name mentioned anywhere during the search for a manager??? Could it be he doesn't want the job?

Could be because he was so close to Girardi, he sees the way Cashman operates and wants no part of it.

He applied for the job when Torre went. He'll apply again but I think the Yankees already have their minds made up on the hire. I highly doubt they fire Girardi without having someone in mind that they want to replace him, or at least a heavy favorite to do so. I'd be happy with Pena or Flarhety but for some reason I have a feeling that it will be someone from outside the organization.

Peña's ship has sailed as a manager, at least with the Yankees.  Everything that Cashman has said points completely away from Peña's style.  I think he would have been a great choice when Girardi was first hired and he'd probably still be a great choice today, but he isn't what the Yankees want.

loved him as a player, but O'Neill as a manager would be a disaster.  He'd be kicking the water cooler, chucking bats onto the field and raising proper you-know-what at decisions that didn't go his way.  I don't think he's even expressed an interest so why would he even be on the Yankees radar?  nc

you want O'neill because you think he would be carrying on in the dugout and yelling at players just to prove to you that the Yankees are intense. Like Paulie in the booth, would be a disaster in the dugout and he wants no part of it anyway

I miss the days when a manager was allowed to get ticked off, go to a base, dig it up and throw it...now that the game has become more computerized, it won't be the same seeing a manager yelling and trying to throw a base at the scoreboard.

There were some good managerial demonstrations this year.  They were mainly for things that were "not reviewable" or the ridiculous replay review results.  I'd love to see a manager put the headphones on and yell at the crew in New York.  I thought replay did a lot of good things this year but it seemed to vary from replay crew to replay crew.  Some felt like they had to make a decision rather than let the play on the field stand.  Others wouldn't overturn a call unless it was 99 44/100 % clear.  I also feel there was some subjectiveness based on the umpire being reviewed.

Don't you just hate it when they show the replay of a reviewed call, to the TV audience, who can clearly see what the call really was, meanwhile the umps are still waiting for another couple of minutes for the official decision from the NY crew...ridiculous.
