Girardi set to follow Jeter’s lead

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 27, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

114833At some point this afternoon, before tonight’s Yankees game against the White Sox, Joe Girardi is going to talk about his expiring contract and the Chicago Cubs managerial opening. He’s going to do it with both New York and Chicago media on hand in hopes that this will be a one-time-only event, getting the questions out of the way all at once, much like Derek Jeter did in spring training.

“I don’t know what they’re going to ask, but I’m going to do it on Friday and that will be it,” Girardi said on the last day in Toronto. “It’s just another thing you have to deal with. I understand people want to know what you’re thinking, but my responsibility is here.”

It’s hard to imagine Girardi will say much he hasn’t already said. He pretty much laid it out on Monday.

“I know I have a background (in Chicago),” he said. “I’m not going to skirt around my background there. I grew up a Cubs fan. I played for the Cubs. But I’m not worried about that right now. I’m worried about what we’re doing now. We’re in a fight.”

That’s pretty much all you can expect from him. Maybe Girardi will make some grand announcement this afternoon, but it’s more likely he’ll acknowledge the facts — he has strong ties to both organizations, he’s won in New York, he has family in Chicago — without actually revealing anything. Acknowledge the basic facts and move on.

It worked for Jeter.

    Girardi isn’t going to burn any bridges, in case the Yankees swerve off into a different direction this offseason, but he will have plenty of chances in the future to manage the cubs. He won’t get another chance to manage the Yankees.

  2. YanksfaninPA August 27th, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    screw the cubs job!

  3. Cashmoney August 27th, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    i would do a sign and trade deal, Girardi for Starling Castro and Colvin plus three PTBNL (Cubby’s next 3 first round picks) and installed sweet V as our manager.

  4. Niblick August 27th, 2010 at 2:00 pm

    Joe G. can never top Joe Torre, or Casey Stengel, or the other managers who have led the Yankees to World Series championships. All he can do is hope they win and hope he doesn’t get cruficied if they don’t.

    On the other hand, if by some miracle he were able to lead the Cubbies to a WS championship, he would approach god-like status, akin to what Terry Francona has achieved in Boston.

    For that reason, my money is on Girardi signing with the Cubs next year. As a bonus for Girardi, he will no longer have to deal with Jorge, for whom he clearly has little respect or affection.

  5. Nick in SF August 27th, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    Will Girardi also follow Jeter’s lead in decline underachievement and earn Rich in NJ and Jerkface’s wrath? :(

  6. Cashmoney August 27th, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    2 year and 20 mil for Jeter , take it or leave it , Capt! Yankees don’t owe him anything.

    No deal unless the Cubbies take John Sterling too.

    That’s not going to happen.

    Derek Jeter isn’t taking a 50% paycut, nor will the Yankees offer him one.

  9. GreenBeret7 August 27th, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    19 year old Bryan Mitchell pitched 5 innings, allowing 1 hit, 0 runs, 1 walk, 7 strikeouts for the Tampa Baby Yankees today. They lead 4-0 in the 6th inning. Angelo Gumbs has his 2nd straight 2 hit game and is 2-3.

    Why does this even need to be acknowledged by Girardi in a press conference, W.T.F.

    The Yankees are competing for a division title, much biigger fish to fry and instead this nonsense is being undertaken to address the managerial situation about a team that is going nowhere in the Cubs

    Who gives a horse’s flea ridden bum about the Cubs

    Yankees don’t want or need their season following the path of the Cubs, those lovable losers.

    The team as a whole Girardi included needs to be focused on the immediate task at hand, get the Yankees back to playing consistent winning baseball, not this exercise in media drivel.

    SJ, what do you and agents feel about the push in baseball to allow the trading of draft picks? Seems good on the surface, but, it also seems like that decision could wreck a few of the more careless teams.

    “Why does this even need to be acknowledged by Girardi in a press conference, W.T.F.”

    More for the Chicago media than the NY one. If we didn’t have this trip to Chi-Town, there would be no press conference.

  18. pat August 27th, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    Big difference between how Jeter and Girardi could handle their situations is the media isn’t afraid of Girardi.

  19. SJ44 August 27th, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    GB,

    I think agents would like the trading of draft picks because it would give some of their high profile clients a chance to play for bigger market teams.

    I like the trading of draft picks because it makes the draft more interesting and gives teams another option in how they could upgrade their teams.

  20. YankFanCA August 27th, 2010 at 2:20 pm

    “Oh my Goodness Gracious!”

    You don’t leave the job of Yankees manager without having your head examined. If Girardi were to leave, he’d simply be manager XX to lead the Cubs to non-championship seasons.

    Does anyone even remember Herman Franks? Seriously, coaching the Cubs is a guaranteed trip to irrelevance. If Girardi did leave, I would chuckle. There would be dozens of capable managers thrilled to replace him in NY.

  21. Cashmoney August 27th, 2010 at 2:22 pm

    just weighing in on Strasburg , his injury was unfortunate for nationals (financially and competitive wise ) , but they will go on . For Strasburg himself, the surgery could cost him better part of 2 yrs to regain his form.

    To no fault of his own, I found strasburgmania nauseating , as one can not go anywhere any MLB site without hearing in what fashion he takes his dump in. so i am kinda glad i wont hear all the pom poms waving for awhile now.

    a little coldhearted ? nah, the kid already has millions in the bank, cheers to Boras.

  22. austinmac August 27th, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    Strasburg made me think about David Clyde many years ago. If any consideration is given to attendance in a pitcher’s development, that’s a problem. Pitcher’s need to develop so as to avoid overthrowing when facing major league hitters. Too much, too fast and too dangerous.

    I figured that the agents and even the players as sociation would be in for it for the reasons you named, but, was surprised about the teams being for it. Seems like it could either screw up draft compensation for FA signings or end it all together.

    ++++++++++++++++++

    Typical media driven nonsense. What is wrong with Girardi finishing out his contract and then let the details work its way out

    Instead the manager is in a very tough pennant race and has to be acknowledging this kind of garbage when he is the manager of the Defending World Series Champions and leading a team tied for the best record in baseball

    Just doesn’t add up, heaven forbid if the Yankees were playing like the Mets could you imagine what a circus it would be in the media.

    How the media local and national must long for the days of the “Bronx Zoo” instead of a stable, winning Yankees organization free of internal issues and players at each others throats and mired in controversy.

    I find it odd a man has to answer questions about another ballclub when he is in a deeply competitive situation that requires full attention and commitment.

  26. Carl August 27th, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    I think I just say a C.J. Henry update on espn lol

  27. Cashmoney August 27th, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    trading draft picks would definitely make the draft day more interesting. The mandated 5 mins for each of the 1st round draft picks is completely retarded , since every organizations has been spending better part of the year in scouting talents and clearly knows what they want .

    but imaging with talent like Strasburg and Harper available last couple years, what kind of talents other ballclubs are willing to give up for those two.

    Bryce harper on the yankees, the possibilities of that or for any other clubs would have made the draft infinitely more interesting.

    Re: Joe Girardi’s family ties in Chicago – If that was that important to him, why doesn’t he and his family live there in the off season? I believe it’s been reported the Girardi family lives year round in Westchester. Am I wrong about that? But, I pretty sure it ain’t Chitown.

    Not a big deal for the Yanks. Ramirez will show up in the 9th inning on Sunday.

  39. RhapsodyInBlue August 27th, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Torre turned down 5M per, it only makes sense Joe will get at least that amount.

    With a young family money certainly comes into play.

    It’s not like he’s a player, he needs to accept the big money when/while it’s available. There’s no guarantees.

    Even if Girardi did/does consider the Cubs he would give up some serious cash to accept an offer from them.

    That’s my thought.

  40. Wave Your Hat August 27th, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    I can’t get too excited over whether Girardi goes or stays. My firm belief is that he stays, but if he goes I’m sure the Yanks will somehow find another manager who is just as good.

    How long do the Dodgers and CHISox have to work out a deal?

  47. RER 98 August 27th, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Any manager with a winning background is not about to tarnish their resume by taking on a monumental rebuilding job with the Cubs.
    Ryne Sandberg is the next manager of the Cubs and fans will be more tolerate of the task he has at hand because of his high stature with them.

  48. GreenBeret7 August 27th, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    The deal needs to be completed by Tuesday.

  49. GreenBeret7 August 27th, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    ————————————————–
    Dodgers are five games out of WC, getting Kuroda would be a coup for the yanks on several lvls. 1. he instantly becomes the third starter on this club 2. he is free agent and prolly will yield draft picks if he sign elsewhere, unlike Javy i see ppl giving him multi year deals. 3 he is inning eater which can only benefit the likes of hughes.

    but , if i am only five games out of WC, i would not trade either. who knows what McCourt is thinking on this one.

    why? it would be an informed decision base on his personal variables. I would not discredit him with insanity by any stretch.

    however, like Macfan said earlier, we have a pennant and WS to win. The off season happens in 2 month, we can deal with it later.

  69. SJ44 August 27th, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    If you offer Manny an extension, you lose the only leverage that works for him…..having to play for a contract.

    If you take that off the table, he mails it in again.

    Most scouts who have seen Manny this season don’t see him as an everyday player anymore and the bat has slowed.

    That doesn’t make it a logical play to offer him an extension.

    I’m about as artistic as an adnoid, but, I know what I like. There are a lot of artists here in Savannah and most sketch or paint down on River street or out on Tybee Island. I must admit, that’s the only time that it’s exciting to watch paint dry. Love watching them work.

    CHICAGO — Major League Baseball is investigating Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova and minor league hurler Wilkin De La Rosa for allegedly injecting each other with B-12 shots last season when they were teammates in Trenton (Double-A), The Post has learned.

    Though B-12 isn’t on the list of baseball’s banned substances, only licensed physicians are allowed to inject medication. And MLB wants to make sure that the shots were indeed B-12.

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman said he was unaware of the investigation, and MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said, “We don’t discuss the work of our investigative group.’’

    Promoted from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Triple-A) on Sunday, Nova made his first major league start Monday against the Blue Jays in Toronto. He pitched so well he took Javier Vazquez’s spot in the rotation and is scheduled to start Sunday against the White Sox.

    Nova, 23, pitched 12 games for Trenton in 2009 before he was promoted to SWB, where he was 12-3 with a 2.86 ERA this season before getting called up.

    These are the types of things the Federal Government and Selig should be investigating, instead of conducting witch hunts. From MLB-Rumors-R-Us:

    “•Yahoo’s Jeff Passan reports that Marlins president David Samsom directed millions of dollars to owner Jeffrey Loria. Samson has said publicly that he did no such thing, but Passan contests that “what Samson said was so provably false that it was akin to a 3-year-old trying to hide his peas under a pile of mashed potatoes.”

    I was (and I still am) very glad NY didn’t go after Manny before, and glad it wasn’t a possibility again this year. As SJ implied … he’ll mail it in if he has any guarantee.

    For me, the fact that he actually had the sack to mail it in in Boston, especially in a playoff race (I’m happy in that this helped NY) made him a player not worth signing at any cost.

    On a different topic, I gotta wonder how Washington’s handling of Strasburg may (or may not) have led to his injury. Or his workload in college. Man that sucks. What a talent. I hope he comes back.

  82. Wave Your Hat August 27th, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    “If you offer Manny an extension, you lose the only leverage that works for him…..having to play for a contract.

    If you take that off the table, he mails it in again.

    Most scouts who have seen Manny this season don’t see him as an everyday player anymore and the bat has slowed.

    That doesn’t make it a logical play to offer him an extension.”

    I disagree.

    The Sox have no DH, and Manny is still putting up a .900+ OPS. He may not be an everyday player, but he still has 230 PAs so far this year. And you may get a full year out of him as DH.

    Plus, Ozzie might be the right manager for Manny.

    It would depend on whether Manny would DH and how much he wants.

    to me, the biggest issue will be , will Manny be healthy enough to play a full season ever again!

    but i takes his 900 OPS at DH anytime and anywhere.

    Does he pout like Sheffield when he doesn’t get his ways , It does seem to be the case. But if you can get him for one year in a veteran laden clubhouse, I be willing to take that chance.
    especially, the next best thing at DH is david ortiz if the red sox don’t re up him.

    I hate to rain on your parade Mr Strappe (lol)but the Redsox getting rid of manny DIDN’T help the yankees that year – as the redsox went on to win the WC and were a couple of innings away from making the world series (Tampa eventually won and went on to the WS). If anything it was Manny who singlehandedly took the Dodgers on his back and took them all the way to the NLCS – only to lose to the phillies but it wasn’t his fault as he hit :.520/.667/1.080/1.747 with 4hr/10rbi/ in 10 games in the postseason that year.

    Yankees GM Brian Cashman said he was unaware of the investigation, and MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said, “We don’t discuss the work of our investigative group.’’

    Promoted from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Triple-A) on Sunday, Nova made his first major league start Monday against the Blue Jays in Toronto. He pitched so well he took Javier Vazquez’s spot in the rotation and is scheduled to start Sunday against the White Sox.

    Nova, 23, pitched 12 games for Trenton in 2009 before he was promoted to SWB, where he was 12-3 with a 2.86 ERA this season before getting called up.

    Quick question for everyone out there

    what does it mean when someone says “Shes out of your league?” (and no its not baseball related) as opposed to I guess if someone says ” You’re out of her league?”

    I always thought they were kind of interchangeable in a way – (sort of like having sympathy and empathy – its different but similar)

  110. SAS August 27th, 2010 at 4:11 pm

  111. Doreen August 27th, 2010 at 4:12 pm

    Country Club -

    The way I read it was that it was also not allowed for players to inject each other; that a doctor has to administer any injections. So I assume there would be penalty of some kind for that whether or not the substance itself was illegal.

    Oh I understand- but then couldn’t you say that Manny helped the dodgers get to the playoffs the last 2 years (1 and a half really not counting this year) and if so then he really CAN make a difference

    also i agree that manny leaving the sox hurt more than it helped but it wasn’t because of his replacement (jason bay) as if i remember correctly he actually had pretty good numbers with the redsox

    Boston with Manny trying hard the year Tampa made the series … they probably would have gone to the WS and won.

    I cheer for two teams .. .the Yanks and who ever’s playing Boston.So Manny choosing not be there to put them over the top was indirectly good. And (again) his not being there the next year was good.

    As far as I’m concerned, Chi Sox (or LA) can have him.

    I don’t know if Thome and Branyan can play full season at this point. They are basically platoon DHs at this point to me, which is fine given the fact, PoPo will prolly DH some and maybe Montero? I have seen Branyan enough to know he is big time mistake hitter , if you throw one, Branyan is gonna crush it. remember this is the guy he hammer 30 dingerz in safeco the year prior. he is monstrous power , like Thome.

    one caveat is , manny, thome and branyan were all Indians at one point. what a offensive juggernaut the indians had in the late 90s. I will maintain those Indians squad in the late 90s were the best offensive team i have ever seen in my life time.

    Yes Manny did help the Dodgers. Absolutely. Undeniably. He should have been helping Boston and that’s what makes him worthless.

    Ten most interesting facts about ostriches:

    Ostriches are a true dinosaur – Ostriches skeletons and fossils have been found which date back over 120 million years;
    The ostrich has the largest eye of any land animal. Its eye measures almost five centimeters across.
    The flightless ostrich is the world’s largest bird.
    Though they cannot fly, ostriches are fleet, strong runners. They can sprint up to 70 kilometers an hour and run over distance at 50 kilometers an hour.
    Ostrich kicks can kill a human
    Contrary to popular belief, ostriches do not bury their heads in the sand. The old saw probably originates with one of the bird’s defensive behaviors. At the approach of trouble, ostriches will lie low and press their long necks to the ground in an attempt to become less visible. Their plumage blends well with sandy soil and, from a distance, gives the appearance that they have buried their heads in the sand.
    An Ostrich will live to be 50 – 75 years old.
    The Ostrich egg will weigh 1.6 kg and is equivalent to 2 dozen chicken eggs.
    An Ostrich Hen can lay 40 -100 eggs per year, averaging about 60 eggs per year.
    An Ostrich chick grows one foot taller each month until it is 7-8 months old.

    Thank you for the Pettitte update.

    Cliff Lee was rocked by the Orioles in his 1st Texas start.

    Here’s a story about Tony C. Really sad how that beanball change his life.

    Thanks for the article, Maine. Conigliaro was a great talent. Not sure about the comparisons to Mantle, because he had neither the speed nor the defensive ability of Mantle, but, Lord, could he hit with power. Never seemed like he would be a high average hitter, but, hell, he was only 21, so, hard to say. Beautiful swing, though. Terrible waste of multiple talents and youth…but, so are all tragedies to youth.

    Great news on Andy wooo!

  149. NYY626 - Andy in 2011 August 27th, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    I know Andy didnt throw at full effort today, but i’m staying optimistic and considering that fact that he didnt have any discomfort good news :)

  150. Pat M. August 27th, 2010 at 4:50 pm

    MaineYankee…..I remember seeing Tony C play at The Stadium in his early years, just as the reality that The Yanks were on the downslide…….He was a marvelous ballplayer on track for Copperstown….I mean Sox had Yaz & Tony C to go with Reggie Smith, Rico , Hawk, Lonborg…….I rooted for them in 67 vs. Cards , but lot’s a wierd things happened to that club

    The same one (rabid Sox fan) who has been known to inhabit both the BDC and Sawxhead sites antagonizing Yankee posters?

    Could be a coincidence but the same exact pen name?

    Lee has looked completely different (other than few walks) since he was traded.

    I just want him at his best when we sign him. (not when we face him though)

    He threw a complete game in his first start. He did give up 6 runs though. Not sure how those two things go together…he must have given up a couple of hr’s, but wasnt in trouble otherwise (only threw 95 pitches). His next start was another complete game -2 runs. next start he went 8 1/3 – 2 runs. Next start another complete game – 0 earned runs. next game 8 innings – 4 runs. And next game 8 innings – 1 run.

    Then he went into his current 4 game tailspin.

    I know frog legs taste like chicken. Loved them as a kid but haven’t had any in about 25 years.

    cue the complaining. Cervelli / Pena are 8 / 9 tonight.

  158. SAS August 27th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    I love them too GF. They are hard to find these days ….probably because they are cooked in butter and garlic

  159. Yankee Trader August 27th, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    With any luck, Andy will be able to throw with full effort next time around, which should put him in a position to throw a simulated game and then a rehab start a two. The minor league season ends in less than two weeks, so chances are he’ll have to make any rehab starts during the playoffs. That would be a pretty nice boost for the minor leaguers, no? ·From RAB

    If Tony had stayed in that lineup the RS would have ended their WS drought back then.

    If I remember correctly, Lee pitched the day after he was traded to the Rangers.

    Why Cervelli after an off day is my ?

  164. GreenBeret7 August 27th, 2010 at 4:59 pm

    Pat M./Maine. It’s hard to believe that Tony C. had 104 homers at the age off 22 and 160 at age 25 and that’s after missing 50 games in his rookie season in ’64 with a broken wrist and a year and a half after the beaning. That’s beyond what Pujols did and just 2 fewer than Rodriguez accomplished.

    if all those animals above all tastes like ‘ Chicken’ , how come we never uses them to describe taste….

    i.e. look fool, this prairie dog taste like a cane toad! Bring me another !

    They are definitely hard to find, although, I must say, I can’t remember the last time I went looking for them.

    I love seafood. But, like everything else, it’s expensive as hell.

    Probably because everyone knows what chicken tastes like. Few people know what alligator, ostrich, prairie dog, etc, etc, tastes like.

    Ask Bear Grylls. He probably knows.

    Bear Gryllis eats anything ! very good points about the chicken, unless you live on Galapagos Island, in which case there are prolly more Iguanas than chickens.
