Girardi out, Brosius in as US manager for Olympic qualifiers

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Joe Girardi quit as manager of the U.S. baseball team trying to qualify for the Olympics before it played a single game.

Girardi said Wednesday he is leaving to pursue a major league managing job. There are seven current openings.

He will be replaced by Scott Brosius, who had been slated to be Girardi’s bench coach. Brosius, the MVP of the 1998 World Series with the New York Yankees, became the senior director of baseball development for USA Baseball earlier this year.

Willie Randolph will shift from third base to bench coach, and Ernie Young from the first base coaching box to third.

But what does Girardi do if he doesn’t get one of those jobs?

Not unexpected, but still interesting.

Yeah my assumption is that Girardi knows he is getting a job somewhere (Cubs?).

I was amused by how openly and blatantly Girardi was using his broadcasting gig during the Division Series to pitch himself for manager jobs. At one point he literally said something like "Oh, I'm a big fan of analytics. I love them. They add so much to our understanding of players and strategy."

Pierogi kept bothering him about it too.

That's more upright than college FB coaches that say they love the school, it was their lifelong ambition to coach there, sign a 5 year contract and get their photo on the team advertising, then bolt for the NFL a year later. Has to be a distraction to the team, so I think he is doing the best for USA Baseball. If he doesn't get a MLB job that would raise my respect for him.
