    I always liked and respected Bob Klapisch's intellect as a baseball reporter. So I'm not surprised he wrote this today.



    The Yankees are officially looking for a new managerwho will be versed in advanced analytics, hard-working and honest and can handle daily exposure on YES without embarrassing himself.

    Sorry, that sounds a lot like the guy they just let go. Joe Girardi checked most of those boxes and the Yankees will find it’s not that easy to replace him

    I’ll go one step further and say the Steinbrenner family will ultimately regret this move. Girardi was not a perfect manager and was never the warmest guy in the room. But that shouldn’t have been sufficient reason to essentially fire him. Read more.

      With Joe Girardi out, Yankees take foolish risk they can do a little better.

      The news was stunning, staggering, mystifying.

      Joe Girardi, who had his finest year in his managerial career, leading a young New York Yankees to within one game of the World Series, is out as manager.

      Start spreading the rumors, because this makes no sense.

      None.

      What in the world just happened?

      This can’t have anything to do with a botched instant replay non-call.

      It can’t have anything to do with the club’s performance. Read more.

        Minutes after the final out too. Must have been stewing for quite some time. Glad to see you cooled off a bit on vacation.

        At least you are back though.

        Bravo.

        And you got to admit, the Baby Bombers did take over. It was a perfect thread name.

        Lets talk Yankees again.

        I always admired your pictures at the Yanks, Giants and Isles games.

          There is more going on behind the scenes. Has to be. Although I thought he blew a bunch of games this season for being stubborn, he was one game from the WS for crying out loud.

                  Another interesting thing is, when was the last time 2 teams in the same division finished 1-2 in the division both making the playoffs and both fired their managers? And it being the Red Sox and Yankees makes it that much more interesting.

                    there were indications his relationship with Cashman began to fray a bit in recent years. Someone who knows Girardi well says the manager wanted more input into day-to-day decision-making: he became visibly frustrated, for example, at having to continue to put the non-hitting Chris Carter in the lineup earlier this season.
                    Yikes.... Thats not what you want to hear. Sounds like Cashman might be wanting to go all Jerry Jones on the team and hire a puppet.

                      "Brian Cashman has made it clear he wants a manager he can be comfortable with, which means someone with whom he’s had some sort of relationship, who will embrace analytics and not resist them."

                      Sounds like Brian wants a yes man. Not good.

                        Exactly.

                        I dont like that. He needs to hire a manager to manage, not to look over his shoulder and see what the FO wants him to do.

                          For those who complained that Joe Girardi was too much by the book, and not enough "from the gut" kind of guy. You might be getting a real Binder guy now.

                            Expect Yankees to look within organization for Joe Girardi‘'s replacement — just not on the current coaching staff.

                            So who is that man? Needless to say, this is going to be the most important hire of Cashman’s career. He has so carefully built this team around all these blossoming young players and, above all, he is going to need a manager with the direct opposite of Girardi’s uptight demeanor, with good communication skills who can continue the nurturing process. In other words, hard-*** old school guys need not apply. Read more.

                              Al Pedrique would be my choice now since Gardenhire is in Detroit.

                                I'm going to take a lottery guess on Tim Naehring.

                                Brian Cashman likes him a hell of a lot, and that seems to be very important in the qualifications department for the job.
