• Girardi No-Go On O’s

    Posted by on June 21st, 2007 · Comments (4)

    From the AP -

    Joe Girardi has declined an offer from the Baltimore Orioles to become their next manager, his agent, Steve Mandel, told ESPN on Thursday.

    Girardi interviewed with the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, and ESPN’s Peter Gammons reported that the team offered him their vacant managerial job.

    A former coach for Yankees manager Joe Torre, Girardi returned to New York this season as a broadcaster for the YES Network.

    Whew!

    At the worst, we still get to listen to Joe on YES. At the best, he’s still in the running to be the next Yankees manager. It’s all good.

      I have to say, I’m happy that it went down like that. I like Joe and I wouldn’t have a problem with him taking over the team when Torre’s time is up.

      I wonder if Cashman whispered promises to him or if he just wants to keep his options open.

      I’m hoping he can be the next manager for the Yankees.

      Or he saw Angelos as Loria II.

      Or he saw that the O’s are a bad team, and not going to get better, and practically 1/4 of their schedule is against the Yankees & Red Sox — good teams.
