Girardi out as Yankees manager

Yankees Rumors: New York Hoping To Bring Back Joe Girardi, Brian Cashman

Joe Girardi won't return as the Yankees' manager, according to a report from David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in Chicago. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman followed with his own statement confirming that it was the team's decision to "pursue alternatives for the managerial position". His four-year, $16 million contract is set to expire toward the end of the month.

There's no way in hell Joe Girardi should've been canned by the Yankees - so says ex-NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was "shocked" and "disappointed" by the move.

As for the Yankees, there is no clear candidate in line to take over as manager, and candidates both inside and outside the organization are expected to be considered for the role. He has been in the organization for 28 years, and he was Girardi's bench coach. He guided the club to the World Series title in 2009 and six playoff appearances.

After that game, Girardi accepted responsibility for not challenging a call that would have ended an inning with his team up five runs rather than load the bases and lead to the Yankees' biggest blown lead in a playoff game since 2002.

The Yankees made it to the American League Championship Series where they lost to the Houston Astros in game 7.

"He has a tireless work ethic, and put his heart into every game he managed over the last decade", Cashman said. "He should take great pride in our accomplishments during his tenure, and I wish Joe and his family nothing but success and happiness in the future". His 910 regular-season wins rank sixth in franchise history, trailing Joe McCarthy (1,460), Joe Torre (1,173), Casey Stengel (1,149), Miller Huggins (1,067) and Ralph Houk (944).

There appear to be no clear candidates internally to replace Girardi, although first-base coach Tony Pena had Major League Baseball managing experience.
