And it's Joe Girardi.

Good call, IMHO. He knows how Torre likes to manage, and played with a handful of the guys on the field in the championship years. This should be a good fit. And he'll be catching instructor too, and as Posada could tell you, he makes a pretty solid mentor.

But Stottlemyre? I'm not sure, given how unhappy he's been in the past couple years. Still, probably a better call than Neil Allen, and it's not as though they could get Guidry to leave the bayou.

Crap. I was hoping the Marlins would get Girardi as their bench coach, then let him manage when McKeon retired. That was the word going around, anyway.

Eh, I guess we'll have to settle for Larry Bowa as bench coach.

Mattingly returning means the Curse lives. Fun to be on the other side of one of these Curse's.
