Also, what a complete idiot this Florida owner is. Just b/c Girardi told him to shut up when he was screaming at an ump and hurting the team's chances to win a game, he's going to fire the soon to be NL Manager of the Year and a guy who's got a great future managing in the majors. Way to run a pro franchise you a$$ :-t :-t



there's got to be more to the story than just that one instance, right?


More than likely but you can;t argue with results.

I too believe that the Cubs will heavly pursue Girardi. Cubs should be a pitching an D team. Baker messed up a good thing over there.

You'd hope so, but some people just can't take someone telling them to sit down and be quite. When you factor in that it probably doesn't happen to him too much, you get something that can and did turn ugly.

Very true. The guy is probably surrounded by a bunch of "Yes men" and isnt used to anyone talking back to him, especially one of his employees.

But that owner is still pathetic.

Joe Girardi will not be a part of the Yankees' 2007 coaching staff, but might join the YES Network as a broadcaster.

"We have had preliminary discussions with him," a YES Network spokesman said. "We obviously think very highly of him, given his performance with YES in 2004, his brief analyst work elsewhere and his accomplishments as a manager and coach." Girardi reportedly removed himself as a candidate for the Nationals coaching position so he could be a leading candidate to take over for Joe Torre after the 2007 season.
