I liked him enough as a player and obviously he has garnered the respect of the baseball world with the job he did last year in FLA. I hope he finds a job that actually has upside.
I do hope however, that he is not holding out for the Yanks job as he most likely won't get it.
Why will he most likely not get the Yanks job? Seems like it's between him and Mattingly, and Girardi has more experience.
That was a little overstated on my part. I'm not sure Mattingly will get the job, if there is an opening, either. I am not so sure however, that Torre losses his job. Between those two scenarios, Girardi getting the job seems unlikely but, like you said, he has more experience than Don. But as others have pointed out, the Marlins were a completely green team. It has been postulated that Mattingly would be better at handling the big egos in NY. I am not sure I agree but Girardi does seem a little young to get the reins. As has been previously noted, he played with a few guys still in pinstripes.
