Joe Girardi will hold his end-of-the-year press conference tomorrow morning, though I’m not sure we can expect a lot of new information.
At this point, the offensive disappointment of the postseason has been discussed beyond the point of real analysis. The Yankees didn’t hit. That’s why they were eliminated. We get that much. But beyond saying that the Yankees chased pitches and might have felt some pressure as the offensive struggles continued, I’m not sure Girardi is going to explain exactly why the letdown happened or what the Yankees can do to avoid a similar problem in the future.
As for the offseason, I’m sure Girardi is in on many of the team’s plans, but I’m not expecting him to tip his hand. His job is to manage the players he’s given, and the winter is really up to Brian Cashman and the front office. Girardi might speak to some of his plans for the pieces already in place, but for the most part, this is a press conference to break down the past, not predict the future.
What are you hoping to hear from Girardi tomorrow? And what are you expecting to hear?
