I don't think any of us are surprised here.

ESPN - Not for the Birds: Girardi turns down Orioles job


    BALTIMORE -- Joe Girardi declined an offer Thursday to become the new manager of the Baltimore Orioles, saying the timing wasn't right "for the Girardi family."

    "Baltimore is a fine organization, a fine team, and I'm flattered that they considered me to possibly be their manager," Girardi said Thursday afternoon on The Dan Patrick Show on ESPN Radio. "But the timing is not right for my family and I. That's basically it."


I don't know why anyone thought Girardi would take this black hole of a job. Especially considering that if the Yankees miss the playoffs and Joe Torre gets fired as a result, Girardi would be next in line to take over.

I thought Mattingly was being groomed to take over for Torre.

Mattingly, who was my favorite player growing up, is nowhere near ready for the Manager's job. 2 years as hitting coach and 1 as bench coach is not enough experience. But it seems Cashman wants him to be Torre's successor. Who knows what The Boss wants, since he doesn't really talk in public anymore.

Personally, I'd love to keep Girardi locked in the YES booth until Torre gets fired or lets his contract run out, because I think he'd be a lot better that Donnie right now.

It's still nonsensical. If you needed a Pirate outfielder to replace Patterson, why not Giles? Lofton's numbers this year are nowhere near the top. MLB can't seem to decide between a real contest and a meaningless exhibition based on Q ratings.
