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.
I hope they didn't just do this trade based on the worst possible outcome. I don't think Monetro will be a bad player, but when you have a pitcher that is young, cheap and with sky's the limit potential. You really have the ultimate trade chip.
