Yankees, Joe Girardi Part Ways

After 10 years of managing the New York Yankees, the Bronx Bombers have parted ways with Joe Girardi.

Many thought that Girardi’s job was in jeopardy when the Yankees dropped two straight games in the ALDS to entrench themselves in a 2-0 hole. There were many coaching decisions made during this game that led to the Yankees blowing leads they once held.

From this point, however, the Yankees clicked and never turned back. They won their next three games over the Indians, advancing to the ALCS where they would force a game seven against the Houston Astros despite giving up a 2-0 lead once again early on in the series.

Following the game seven loss, Girardi said that he was very excited about the young talent in the Yankees organization, but wanted to spend time with his family before making a decision about his future with the team.

“I’ve always said, the first thing that I do is I always talk to my family first,” he said. “They come first. Because I think when you have a job, your family has to buy in, too. It’s not just what you want out of life. It’s everyone buying in. So I’ll sit down, talk to my wife and kids and see where they’re at and what they’re thinking. And then we’ll see what the Yankees are thinking.”

Girardi walks away from the Yankees with a 910-710 record as manager.

With this news being as recent as it is, there has been very little discussion surrounding who the replacement will be. There is plenty of options within the organization but it’s also very likely the Yankees will explore elsewhere as well.

Whoever is fortunate enough to land this job will walk into one of the best, young teams in the MLB. They have found their base of a young nucleus that they can build around in the future.
