Girardi in, Mattingly Out.

Girardi In

In a move that was rumored the last few days the Yankees announced they are negotiating with Joe Girardi to become their next manager. I must say this is a surprising move when you considered that Mattingly was hand picked by George to replace Joe Torre. However, Girardi is clearly a thoughtful and intelligent guy. Besides the issues in Florida, he has always been respected as a teammate and a leader. With the Yankees young pitching having someone who understand pitching and as a manager is invaluable. I would still like to see the Yankees throw all sorts of money at Mazzone but that is for another post.

Mattingly Out
Donnie baseball is my favorite player of all time so this is a bittersweet day for me. Seeing him possibly walk away from the organization for good is a hard thing to watch. Girardi was clearly the right choice here but Donnie will be missed
