Say that Joe Girardi does not come back to manage the Yankees…who would then manage the team in 2014?
Would New York give the controls to Tony Pena, who they interviewed when Joe Torre left? I doubt it – as I don’t think Pena has the media skills required for New York. And, I suspect that he was only interviewed at the time to satisfy a quota.
Are the Yankees hoping that Don Mattingly would become available? After all, he was a finalist when they made the call to go with Girardi after Torre.
How about Willie Randolph? He’s a former Yankee – and he’s managed in New York.
Or, will the Yankees consider someone like Mike Gallego, A.J. Hinch, Brad Ausmus, Sandy Alomar Jr., or Torey Lovullo?
My guess: Here comes Trey Hillman.
Book it. Cashman loves the guy.
