    I missed the Callaway hire. As for Jeets and Mattingly, they only briefly crossed paths. Mattingly was in his last season when Jeter got his cup of coffee. I'm sure they know each other, but Jeter and Girardi won titles together as players and then as player and manager. They've been tight for decades.
    Wait until the year after next year.

    No arguing the Jeter/Girardi connection, but Mattingly was a Yankees instructor and coach for years with Jeter.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    His Yankees hitting/bench coach run surely helps, but still pales in comparison. Jeter also might remember 2004-7 as the years the Yankees inexplicably didn't go to the World Series (and then take note that the Dodgers went through a run like that in the 2010s before Dave Roberts arrived).
    Wait until the year after next year.

    And the Yankees got "Sparky Anderson egg" all over their face. Horrid move.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    So, three 90+ win playoff teams fired their managers, has that ever happened before?

    Dream on. The Reds will keep Price until there's nothing left to do except rebuild again. Then they'll choose someone in the organization to take over and spew optimism for five or six years while the team continues to lose. Girardi wouldn't even consider a job in Cincinnati and why would he? As others have said, the DNA of our team is not to go boldly to win, but just be respectable every 10 years. That's harsh, but after over 50 years of watching them, and especially the lat 20 years, that's what you have sadly.

    I don't pay much attention to in game moves, as those are usually 50/50 propositions, and don't matter much over a 162 game schedule. I look at how well he manages the clubhouse and gets the most out of the talent he has. I think the Cardinals have out produced their talent pretty much every season that Matheny has been their manager. To be honest, the Cardinals have not had great teams under him, but have played like they do. Even these last two years, in which they missed the playoffs, they have been pretty terrible, but have been in contention to the end.

    I also like him because Molina and the BFIBB doesn't.

    I would bet NO. Just shows the pressure these guys are under today.

    The Cards have had pretty darn good teams under him. They have always had good starting pitching, I think you are selling the Cardinals pitching staffs short the last few seasons. They have had a lot of solid veterans during his time to go along with Carpenter and Molina.

    Give the 2016-2017 Reds a starting rotation of Martinez, Wainwright, Wacha, Leake, Garcia, Lynn and they probably win 82 and 90 games.

    The fact that Cardinal fans cannot stand him for the most part wants me to stay way far away, because I am guessing we too would not be able to stand him.

    I think you've been drinking that national media Cardinal Way kool-aid

    Wainwright won 25 games the last two seasons with a 4.81 combined ERA. Wacha won 19 with a combined 4.56 ERA. Leake won 16 games with a 4.26 ERA. Lynn was out in 2015. Garcia? Really?

    Their bullpen has been in tatters for the past few years.

    And look at their offense and defense. They survived this year because they got career years out of DeJong and Pham.

    And in 2013, they had that crazy RISP production. They outproduce their talent year after year. I think Matheny is a big part of that.

    White Sox would be an intriguing fit, but I think Renteria has two more years on his contract.

    If I'm a manager, that's the team I would want to join right now. They are loaded with young talent, and about ready to blossom, so whoever manages them in the next few years will get plenty of praise.

    I don't agree with you on Price, I think he has 2018 to meaningfully improve W-L or he is finished. Reds re-hired him because they realized they aren't ready to contend and some rebuilding progress was being made.

    But I do agree that Cincy could be a tough sell for Girardi. It's more likely they can persuade some hot shot young coach to take on the manager's job. Somebody really looking to prove himself with such an opportunity.
