    he managerial shake-ups are continuing in baseball. On Thursday morning, David Kaplan of NBC Sports Chicago reported that New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi wouldn’t be returning to the team in 2018. It didn’t seem possible, especially considering Girardi’s record of success with the Yankees — even getting his team to within one game of the World Series this year. But it was confirmed by Girardi himself, who released a statement through his agent.

    With a heavy heart, I come to you because the Yankees have decided not to bring me back.”—statement from Joe Girardi #Yankees

    Of course, that statement doesn’t shed any light on why this decision was made. It has to be something, because Girardi’s record with the Yankees is excellent. He was hired in 2008 to replace Joe Torre, and they haven’t had a single losing season since. In 2009, Girardi’s second year on the job, Yankees won 103 games and a World Series.

    This was all over ESPN.com’s home page this morning. You had to go to another page to read about the game last night. Not like that game was interesting at all. :rolleyes:

    Despite his dismissal, Girardi did a very good job as Yankees manager, most notably winning the World Series back in 2009. Even so, his 10-year tenure at the helm in the Bronx featured disagreements over player usage and other things between him and the front office. Like with a lot of big league front offices, such differences sometimes stemmed from disagreements over analytics and scouting/gut.

    Interesting, he's implying that the players didn't like him. Never heard anything like that before and my buddy who is a hardcore Yankee fan said that's total BS.

    I'm not close enough to the situation to know either way.
