Joe Girardi’s Yankees Exit Fits Into an Era When the Front Office Is King - The Ringer

Now, some of the olds are out again, and a manager in the mold of the Astros’ A.J. Hinch is what we’re told that teams want. Hinch, of course, was once fired himself, another reminder both that managers evolve and that some dismissals amount to no more than the baseball equivalent of “It’s not you, it’s me.”

And so the cycle continues—an opaque, confusing churn of young and old, old-school and stathead, and disciplinarian and players’ manager. In 2017 more than ever, that perpetual, unfulfillable longing for smoother seas has left leaders with great records sinking in its wake.

What made Joe Girardi a success cost him his job | New York Post

Every manager has a shelf life.

This Yankees team is ready to contend for titles the next few years, and the front office wants to emulate what the World Series teams have with Houston’s A.J. Hinch and Los Angeles’ Dave Roberts. Not just smart and energetic and in control of strategy — but having a personality that bonds all the various elements of an organization as one.

Joe Girardi will not return as manager as Yankees ‘decided not to bring me back’

Joe Girardi is done in the Bronx.

The Yankees decided to part ways with Girardi after ten years at the helm, GM Brian Cashman announced on Thursday.

“I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organization,” GM Brian Cashman said. “Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration, and we’ve decided to pursue alternatives for the managerial position.”

Girardi, 53, leaves the Bombers with a 910-710 managerial record since 2008.

Doesn’t this seem a little late to make this move?

Not challenging hit-by-pitch only start of Joe Girardi’s problems

In Game 2 on Friday, Sanchez immediately pointed out the ball hit the knob of the bat, not Chisenhall’s hand. He told reporters after the game he yelled “Foul! Foul!” and replays show him looking and pointing toward the dugout, the universal sign for “challenge this.” Girardi did not challenge it. And after the game, Girardi said this:

“There was nothing that told us he was not hit on the pitch.”

Oops.
