The Yankees have been in no hurry to do anything since the season ended and that seems to be the case with selecting a new manager.
Brian Cashman is back in New York and mulling over the decision. All indications are that the choice is his and will be approved by the Tampa Trio.
It certainly speaks to the condition of George Steinbrenner, or at least to the influence that his sons have over him now. Whether that is good or bad for the organization moving forward is something only time will reveal. Everybody knew this day was coming and apparently it is here.
I won’t pretend to have any inside knowledge as to what Cashman is thinking. He is perceived as a Joe Girardi supporter. But Cashman has worked for the Yankees all his adult life and knows what Don Mattingly means to the organization.
My choice would be Mattingly. But I don’t have a choice. Only Brian Cashman does and he’s not saying yet.
Back with more later if there are any developments.
