    I concur. I wanted him gone in a fit of rage after Game 2 of the ALDS, but they rallied for him and it shows the team responded for their manager. Teams rarely respond like that.

    It's very similar to the Sox firing Farrell. We'll never know all the real reasons for the moves - only Dombrowski and Cashman know.

    I am not surprised that he is gone. You are a Yankee fan living in Red Sox country. I am the opposite, and the atmosphere around Girardi has been bad for a while. The fans have despised him for a long time. He didn't have a lot of support from his players either. Couple that with him being a terrible game tactician and a douche, he was past his expiration date. Yankee fans are rejoicing today, and that makes me unhappy. I hope they hire Farrell.

    Exactly my feelings, always supported him with the exception of the infamous game 2

    I tend to agree.

    Why upset the apple cart?

    I figure there was some kind of bad blood between Giradi and management and that management has another guy identified to plug in.

    "It's also a simple and indisputable fact that WAR isn't the be-all end-all in valuations, especially in real life. Wanna know why? Because an ace in run-prevention for 120 innings means more often than not, a sub-standard pitcher covering for the rest of the IP that pitcher fails to provide. You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Hmm. Interesting input.

    They will be losing nothing by replacing him. People thought the same thing when they fired Showalter. Girardi is not a very good manager. He goes into the same basket of mediocrity of at least 25 other managers.

    People tend to forget that baseball organizations train and groom staff personnel as much as they do players. I'm certain they already have someone in mind within the organization now or previously in the organization they want to bring back. Girardi did a nice job over his 10 years at the helm. Time to pass the torch. The Yankees need a manager who can work with and understand their crop of young players that are now with the team and those in the minors who will be joining the 40 man roster over the next several years. Best of luck Joe and thanks for your 10 years of service.
