Joe Girardi was in Manhattan tonight for the ALS charity dinner. Brian Heyman of the Journal News was there and relayed these comments:

“The only thing I’m going to comment on about the Yankees situation is what I said two days ago. I had a great interview, and it’s an honor for whoever gets that job. Managing in the big leagues is an honor as well as a privilege.”

Old friend David Cone was on hand as well. He was, as always, happy to talk:

“I think whoever the new manager is going to be is going to be pretty lucky. The Yankees are a great team, a great organization and have tremendous resources,” he said.

“I don’t think you can lose with whoever you choose. Don Mattingly would be a great choice; Joe Girardi would be a great choice. Tony Pena as well. I’m glad I don’t have to make that choice.”
