    Girardi out as Yankees manager

    SportsCenter‏
    @SportsCenter 2m2 minutes ago

    Breaking: Joe Girardi is out after 10 seasons as Yankees manager, sources told ESPN 1000's David Kaplan.

    I imagine he'll take a year off but if I were the Reds I'd be gauging interest ASAP.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Dusty is over here waving at Cashman.

    If Giardi wants to come back next season I would imagine the Nats would oblige.

    One thing to consider is the Nationals are super cheap, I've heard stories about their penny pinching. We know the contract lowballing of Bud Black which led to them hiring Dusty, who was happy just to have a job. But Girardi won't manage for nothing.

    Yeah, I heard they were paying Dusty about half of what he was making here.

    I forgot about the Black debacle. If the Nats stay that course no way Giardi goes there. No way for the Reds either. I doubt they spend big money on a manager at this point.

    This has been rumored for a long time. I thought Girardi was a good fit in NY. Any ideas what the problem was?

    I was a skeptic his first few years with the Yankees, I thought his one and done with the Marlins didn't indicate a whole lot, but he won me over in large part due to his bullpen usage. I think he's easily in the top 1/3 of managers in baseball.

    I think he's the best in baseball at handling a pitching staff. For a few years people were insisting the Yankees were toast because they didn't have pitching and every year he cobbles together a working rotation and bullpen.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    The availability of some great managers and Chris Bosio as pitching coach should remind us all here that the Reds will never take the aggressive risks needed to become a World Series winner. It's just not in the club's DNA.

    “With a heavy heart, I come to you because the Yankees have decided not to bring me back.”

    He was let go, which is surprising. I could have seen Girardi deciding to move on, but I have no idea why the Yankees thought they could do better. The Yankees were supposed to be continuing a rebuild this season, and made it one game away from the World Series.
    The team Matheny described several times this weekend as the team he thinks the Cardinals could be, is actually the team the Reds have become.

    If Dave Martinez leaves the Cubs - could Girardi return to Chicago to be Maddon's bench coach...

    yeah... probably not after the Yankees gig.

    Cant help but think they have made a big mistake here.

    I agree. I'm sure the Reds won't be the only team interested, but Girardi's teams have won, he's faced pressure to win every year, and the Reds will need that mindset and experience, hopefully very soon.

    If offered enough money, I could see Girardi having interest in a team well along in rebuilding. If he gets them to .500 he'll get a parade.

    Re: Girardi out as Yankees manager

    It wouldn't surprise me if a manager like Girardi looked at the Reds roster and said "no thanks". He'll get job offers from contenders and this team still isn't close to contention. Maybe if he takes a year off and the Reds inch closer to .500 he'll entertain the idea in 2019...
