No big surprise here- he was the man Loria wanted. Talk about opposites- going from McKeon to Girardi. Although the way the team performed last year and how they reacted to McKeon, maybe someone just the opposite of him will work.
Of the seven guys who interviewed, I was hoping for Girardi. The lack of managerial experience doesn't really bother me. I wish Galarraga and Zim would've agreed to join the coaching staff- but I'll settle for hopefully bringing in Don Baylor.
Actually, if there's anything to this at all, I think A-Rod's days in baseball are done. The Yankees would have enough legal grounds to void his contract (which they would do in a heartbeat due to A-Rod's age and a clear lack of return on investment)
