Girardi re-signed to a four-year deal

The Yankees just announced that manager Joe Girardi has re-signed with a four-year contract through the 2017 season. Here’s the announcement from the team.

Joe GirardiThe New York Yankees announced today they have re-signed Manager Joe Girardi to a four-year contract, extending through the 2017 season. The 48-year-old Girardi has guided the team to the postseason in four of his six seasons at the helm, winning the franchise’s 27th World Championship in 2009. Under Girardi, the Yankees have gone a Major League-best 564-408 (.580) since 2008.

Over his first six years as manager of the Yankees (2008-13), the club has led the Majors in home runs (1,236), while ranking second in runs scored (4,884) and seventh in hits (8,836) and batting average (.265). The Yankees have also committed the fewest errors (484) in the Majors over the span, with a Major League-high .986 team fielding percentage.

In 2013, Girardi guided the Yankees to an 85-77 finish, tied with Baltimore for the third-best record in the American League East. He recorded his 500th win as Yankees manager on May 10 at Kansas City in his 844th game as skipper of the club, becoming the fifth-fastest manager in club history to reach the milestone behind Casey Stengel (790 games), Joe McCarthy (796 games), Joe Torre (833 games) and Miller Huggins (833 games). The club made just 69 errors in 2013, the third-lowest total in the Majors and tying the franchise record for fewest in a season (also 2010). Their .988 fielding percentage set a new franchise record, fractionally better than their .988 mark in 2010.

In 2009, Girardi became the ninth Yankees manager to win a World Series, and just the fourth to do so in his postseason managerial debut, joining Ralph Houk, Bob Lemon and Casey Stengel. He also joined Houk and Billy Martin as the only Yankees to play for and manage a Yankees World Championship team. At 45 years old in 2009, Girardi became the youngest manager in Yankees history to win a World Series and the fourth-youngest in the Majors to do so since 1980 behind the White Sox’s Ozzie Guillen (2005), the Mets’ Davey Johnson (1986) and Minnesota’s Tom Kelly (1987 and ’91).

Joe Girardi was the fifth-youngest manager in the Major Leagues in 2013, behind Houston’s Bo Porter (41), St. Louis’ Mike Matheny (43), Seattle’s Eric Wedge (45) and Chicago-AL’s Robin Ventura (46). He owns a 642-492 (.566) career managerial record, trailing only Sparky Anderson (683), Frank Chance (662), Al Lopez (660) and Joe McCarthy (643) for the most wins by any manager in his first seven years at the helm (credit: Elias).

Girardi was named the 32nd manager of the New York Yankees on October 30, 2007, becoming the 17th Yankees manager to have played for the club and the fourth former Yankees catcher to skipper the team, joining Bill Dickey, Ralph Houk and Yogi Berra. In 2005, he served as the New York Yankees’ Bench Coach and Catching Instructor in his coaching debut.

In 2006, Girardi was named the National League “Manager of the Year” after guiding the Florida Marlins to a 78-84 record in his first season as a Major League manager. With the award, he matched the Houston Astros’ Hal Lanier (1986) and the San Francisco Giants’ Dusty Baker (1993) as the only managers to win the honor in their managerial debuts.

In 15 Major League seasons as a catcher, Girardi played for the Chicago Cubs (1989-92 and 2000-02), Colorado Rockies (1993-95), New York Yankees (1996-99) and St. Louis Cardinals (2003). He was originally selected by the Cubs in the fifth round of the 1986 draft and went on to appear in six career postseasons, winning World Series titles with the Yankees in 1996, 1998, and 1999. In 1,277 career Major League games, he batted .267 (1,100-for-4,127) with 454 runs, 186 doubles, 36 home runs and 422 RBI, finishing with a .991 career fielding percentage while throwing out 27.6% of potential base stealers. He was named to the National League All-Star team in 2000 while playing with the Cubs.

As a Yankee, Girardi was behind the plate for Dwight Gooden’s no-hitter on May 14, 1996 vs. Seattle and David Cone’s perfect game on July 18, 1999 vs. Montreal. In World Series Game 6 vs. Atlanta on October 26, 1996, he tripled in the game’s first run in a three-run third inning as the Yankees clinched their first World Championship since 1978 with a 3-2 victory.

A native of Peoria, Ill., Girardi was a three-time academic All-American and two-time All-Big Ten selection at Northwestern University, graduating with a degree in industrial engineering in 1986. Following his retirement as a player in 2004, Girardi joined the YES Network as an analyst and won an Emmy Award for hosting YES’ “Kids on Deck” series. In 2007, he rejoined YES, working as an analyst on Yankees broadcasts, and also appeared in the booth with FOX during regular season and postseason broadcasts. He and his wife, Kim, have three children, Serena, Dante and Lena.

    You know, every time I have one of these longer minor league update posts — the kind of thing to fill in some blanks on a slow news day — I’m always nervous about posting it because I’m CERTAIN it’s going to be followed by bigger news that makes the post useless.

    I’ve just never had it happen literally seconds after the post in question!

  11. CountryClub October 9th, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    If I were you, I would re-post the last thread in a couple of hours. Nothing wrong with that.

    I might just do that.

    By the way, Jon Heyman is reporting it’s a $16M deal for Girardi.

  17. austinmac October 9th, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    Good news on Girardi. Now, for some players for him to manage.

    I also thought maybe he got some assurances. Please let that be true.

    Glad to have Joe back… Now forget about the 189 plan and SPEND SPEND SPEND!!!

  21. Tar October 9th, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    I wonder if joe has a “must sign Stewart” clause?

    Welcome back Joe,methinks you’re in for a helluva ride

  22. Doreen October 9th, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    What kind of assurances, though?

    There are things they cannot guarantee.

  23. jpb173 October 9th, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    I’m glad that the Girardi situation was resolved quickly. Although I’m glad that Joe is coming back, there was a side of me that could have been happy if he didn’t. I would have considered replacing Girardi with a solid organizational guy like Trey Hillman and then have Jorge Posada become the bench coach. In 2-3 years, after Posada gets a feel for the coaching side of baseball, I’d consider kicking Hillman upstairs and making Jorge the manger. That’s all moot now.

  24. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Doreen-

    That the Yankees would not be allowed to sink into mediocrity ?

    ;)

  25. austinmac October 9th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    Doreen,

    He could simply be assured that, yes, they will do all they can to field a good team. No specifics can be promised, but good intentions can be.

  26. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    That’s gonna make it an even 10 yrs. for JG.

    That’s a long time w one Team.

  27. blake October 9th, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    “What kind of assurances, though?”

    probably that nothing except the budget will stand in the way of putting a championship team on the field.

  28. pkyankfan69 October 9th, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Joe should have had it written in his contract that if the Yanks payroll is not $225M+ he is able to opt out after the 2015 season.

  29. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    I wonder if JG has made more as Mgr. than as a player ?

    Probably, eh ?

    :)

  30. bruceb October 9th, 2013 at 3:34 pm

    Brave move by Girardi. There would have been a lot less pressure managing the Cubs or Nationals.

    Unlike many of his predecessors, he has taken the job at a time when there is no guarantee of success.

  31. 86w183 October 9th, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Salary plus bonuses??? Aren’t bonuses the same as incentives?

    Isn’t that disrespectful in Yankee manager world?

    Next up QO for Cano, Kuroda and Granderson.

  32. Warning Track Power October 9th, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Welcome Back Joe Girardi-
    Now let’s get back to winning a couple more WS titles beginning in 2014

  33. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Bruce-

    Nothing brave about 20 mil if you figure in the incentives.

    Heck, I’d do it for a 10th of that.

    :)

  34. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:39 pm

    86-

    I’d say 16 + will set up his family for life.

    Nothing disrespectful there IMO.

    In fact, if that’s disrespectful I want to be disrespected.

    ;)

  35. bruceb October 9th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    MTU

    There are few jobs in sports that are worth the money the person is paid, but manager of the New York Yankees may actually be one of them. Lot of pressure dealing with the NY media. High expectations each and every year.

    In any case, Joe could have got similar money from another club with a lot less hassle.

    I do take your point though. :)

  36. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Some errands to run.

    Back later.

  37. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 3:42 pm

    16 Mil or so buys a lot of peace of mind.

    Later.

  38. Doreen October 9th, 2013 at 3:43 pm

    austinmac -

    Based on the last press conference Joe G gave, he already sounded pretty positive about the idea that things would be worked on over the winter.

    I think it’s clear they WANT to field a winning team; it is not clear that the people who buy the tickets are satisfied of that (or at least the people here).

    blake -

    What is there besides the budget that would stand in the way?

    Perhaps the only real “assurance” a manager who’s been with the team for 6 years already and now has the next 4 invested, is that he has more input into the makeup of the team? THat’s assuming he didn’t have as much input as he would ahve liked, and I really don’t like making assumptions like that, since there’s no way I could know.

  39. Wave Your Hat October 9th, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    I think the assurance Joe got was the assurance he would be paid $16M over the next 4 years.

  42. Tar October 9th, 2013 at 3:48 pm

    “deep SS is a longer throw than almost every throw a 3B makes…..you need more arm strength to play SS than 3B really. He has plenty to play 3rd.”

    Think about Jeter’s throws from deep SS…you got the patented jump throw and not much more. The average play I would think would be longer from3B, but I could be wrong.

    I do agree he has enough for 3B however.

  43. Bronx Jeers October 9th, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    99 problems but finding a new manager ain’t one of them.

  44. austinmac October 9th, 2013 at 3:52 pm

    Doreen,

    Wanting actually has to be followed by action. Sign Tanaka or Abreu. Add McCann, or try to. Sitting on their wallet is not really wanting to. See, for example, the last three years when they let others sign very valuable players without even a fight.

    I am loud about my criticism. Show me a plan that makes sense, and I will be happy. The plan must, however, involve more than retreads.

  45. blake October 9th, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    “Think about Jeter’s throws from deep SS…you got the patented jump throw and not much more. The average play I would think would be longer from3B, but I could be wrong.”

    SS’s play much deeper than the 3B typically does……3B rarely makes a throw as long as deep in the hole at SS……only time would be if they are playing way back and a ball is hit down the line.

    Either way…..if you have the arm strength to play SS….you can play 3B.

  46. blake October 9th, 2013 at 3:56 pm

    Jon Heyman ?@JonHeymanCBS 5m
    Good job to get girardi done quickly. Now all cashman needs to do is acquire a 2B, SS, 3B, C, OF and pitching. #NYY

  47. Wave Your Hat October 9th, 2013 at 3:59 pm

    austinmac-

    I still don’t believe signing McCann is the way to go. If they are serious about the $189M, they aren’t going to be that good next year one way or the other. I’d prefer to see them go with Romine and Murphy, hope one of them works out, then trade him when Sanchez is ready. Then they’d have a cheap, good catcher (hopefully, but you have to roll the dice) and a good player obtained for Romine and Murphy, for a lot less than McCann.

    I just think it is shortsighted to trade for talent at the only position where they are deep.

  48. Pat M. October 9th, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    Tar… The throw from the hole at short is at least 25 feet longer than the throw from behind the bag at third. And then there’s the entire weight and balance issues that go with those throws. Short is moving away from 1st, behind third you’re generally stable and already planted. Clete Boyer had a shortstop arm who played great and rangey 3rd base. Not many can play both

  49. austinmac October 9th, 2013 at 4:00 pm

    Heyman,

    That about sums it up.

  50. JRC October 9th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    One world series and two missed playoffs in six years, not good. Choked against Boston and Tampa Bay, not good. Look for the same for four more years.

  51. blake October 9th, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    it’s a misconception that 3B has to have the best arm in the infield……they do need arm strength but SS’s make the longest and most difficult throws. Which is why if you can play SS you can play 3B almost always……doesn’t work the other way around.

  52. Warning Track Power October 9th, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    How about winning 84 games with a depleted roster that took about 50+ players to get
    through the season?

    I guess you forgot to mention that.

    “One world series and two missed playoffs in six years, not good.”

    The dynasty is over. With all the new money in the sport, and in the unhappy knowledge that maybe once in a lifetime you experience a group of youngsters like Jeter, Rivera, Pettitte, Williams and Posada, in the future I hope they can make the playoffs 2 out of 3 years and win the WS 1 out of 6.

  54. Pat M. October 9th, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    blake….great point about that misconception about playing 3rd. Brooks Robinson was great moving in on balls and going to the line and was outstanding in doing both. He wasn’t great moving to his left and had an average arm ( think 2nd base ) but he had great feet and a quick first step. That plus he Mark Belanger ( all state point guard ) at short who had hreat range. Palmer told me last week that if Belanger took baseball more seriously he could have been a much better player. He also stated that he was a better basketball player

  55. Doreen October 9th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Hi Pat M -

    You were at Dodgers’ clinching game, no? Great time for you!!

  56. blake October 9th, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    Pat M,
    at 3B also you usually catch the ball a lot quicker than at SS because you’re so much closer…..which gives you a lot more time. SS’s have to field every play cleanly and make a strong throw because the balls gets to them later.

    That was really cool getting to sit beside Palmer…..I like him

  57. 4TrainNorth October 9th, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Glad to have Joe back. One thing about Joe — I believe he is committed to continual improvement as a manager. Everyone’s got his flaws, but overall I doubt we could have topped what Joe brings.

  58. blake October 9th, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    Girardi has had the talent to win a title I’d say 3 years out of the 6 he’s been manager. 2009 obviously…..I think the 2010 and 2011 teams also were good enough as well……the 2008 team obviously wasn’t good enough and the 2013 teams was the worst yankee roster in 20 years.

    He’s won when he’s had the tools to do it…..and he’s overachieved with what he’s had the other years. The 2012 team had no business winning 95 games and getting to the ALCS and this years team honestly had no business even being .500

  59. austinmac October 9th, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Wave,

    I understand your catcher thoughts, but where else can they pick up the desperately needed offense? If you say Abreu, I wouldn’t”t argue. If he is a FH that can hit, great. The Sox do fine with a regular DH. Jeter is not one.

    Jeter’s best skill at SS is his ability to come in on a ball. That would serve him well at third, I think. I am still waiting for AROD to throw someone out on a dribbler.

  60. Wave Your Hat October 9th, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    “Girardi has had the talent to win a title I’d say 3 years out of the 6 he’s been manager. 2009 obviously…..I think the 2010 and 2011 teams also were good enough as well…”

    Yes but you can have the talent, do a good job and still not win the title, because in the post-season all the teams are about equal. Each wild card team has about a 1/16 chance of winning the title, and each division winner has about a 1/8 chance of winning the title. I don’t hold the post-season track record against Joe at all.

  61. Wave Your Hat October 9th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    “I understand your catcher thoughts, but where else can they pick up the desperately needed offense?”

    I agree they need offense. I don’t know where they get it, frankly. I guess I’d rather take the short term hit (easier for me to say because I don’t think they will be a serious contender in the short term anyway) and not foreclose the chance of striking some gold with the young catchers.

  62. blake October 9th, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    I don’t either…..I was just saying that of the 6 years he’s been manager I think they only actually had the talent to win the title probably half…..and he won 1 of those years and made it to the ALCS another…..plus made it to the ALCS last year.

  63. 4TrainNorth October 9th, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    Who’s got the better chance of knocking off the Sox: Oakland or Detroit?

    I’m going with Oakland.

  64. blake October 9th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

    Detroit matches up better with Boston if Miggy is Miggy…..they have the best and deepest rotation to face the Sox lineup.

  65. blake October 9th, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    This A’s team is way more impressive than the “Moneyball” one as far as Beane goes……way more impressive.

    That team in the movie was good…..but it wasn’t really because of finding undervalued players…..it was because they had Hudson, Mulder, and Zito and because they had the AL MVP in Miguel Tejada.

    This 2013 A’s team is a marvel how they win……they have zero stars and Bartolo Colon started game 1.

  66. Wave Your Hat October 9th, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    “Detroit matches up better with Boston if Miggy is Miggy…..they have the best and deepest rotation to face the Sox lineup.”

    Detroit’s achilles heel with Boston is Detroit’s lousy bullpen. The Detroit starters will have a hard time going real deep in ball games because of the number of pitches Boston makes you throw.

    “Detroit’s achilles heel with Boston is Detroit’s lousy bullpen. The Detroit starters will have a hard time going real deep in ball games because of the number of pitches Boston makes you throw.”

    that’s true…..I just think their starters match up better and if Cabrera comes around they can beat them. I don’t see Oakland beating Boston though…..course you never know

    The Cards or Dodgers can take Boston.

  69. Mordot11 October 9th, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    Can’t say I’m surprised by this news, but I am certainly disappointed.

  70. 4TrainNorth October 9th, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    Definitely something magical going on in Oakland. Something almost ineffable. Will it be enough to beat the beards? I know they have to get there first, but I like the idea of this no-name bunch ousting the Zac Browns.

  71. 4TrainNorth October 9th, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Of course, there’s a nice storyline to a Pittsburgh-Boston series: a rematch of the first WS of the modern era.

  72. jacksquat October 9th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    Blech

  73. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    I like the Buccos but the Cards are the stronger team.

    They would be much better prepared to defeat the Sux if they make that far.

    And since there is no way I want the Sux WS champs that’s what I have to root for.

    ;)

  74. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    And the Rays returned to being the little engine that couldn’t.

    Not enough O.

    They depend on Longoria way too much.

  75. Hankflorida October 9th, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    Wave your hat, you are right about the catching position of going with Murphy and Romaine, but that is if they sign Cano. Without Cano, they need some power bats, and that is why I can see them signing McCaan, Choo and Granderson with Nunez at 2nd, Jeter, Text, Reynolds at 3rd, Gardener and Soriano at DH.

  76. Wave Your Hat October 9th, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Hankflorida-

    That team would score some runs, although I am not wild about Nunez at second or Reynolds at third, and would need Jeter and Tex to actually play and play well.

    If the Yanks were holding to a $189M ceiling, would there be enough payroll left for a pitching staff? Depends on ARod, I guess.

    And once again Texas underachieves.

    That is really nice.

    They should fire Washington.

    And for the 4th straight yr. the Halos are out of the playoffs.

    And people thought we had problems.

    That idiot Moreno brings back DiPoto and Scioscia.

    If ever a firing were in order.

    ;)

    And the Phillies.

    Good luck with that one.

    Their window slammed shut.

    :)

    You are right as it depends on A-Rod because I think that Hal has his 189M ceiling. Signing Granderson, McCaan and Choo for shorter contracts if they can’t get get Cano would cost them an extra 20 million a year. Playing Nunez at 2nd and Reynolds at 3rd helps keep to the cap figure and leave some money for the pitching staff which is your concern. Even with Cano, I would like two power bats in the outfield, but I do not know if Hal could afford to have Choo and Granderson play with Gardener, and if he could, your catchers of Romaine and Murphy would be fine.

    Hi MTU -

    Cooking dinner.

    :)

    Waiting for the rice.

  83. mick October 9th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Why not re-sign Grandy, get McCann and trade for Tulowitzky @ 7/130?
    It would take prospects and Nova and Cano walking…

  84. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    Doreen-

    I thought I scared everyone off.

    Best I could do was to pick some organically grown tomatoes from our garden.

    :(

  90. MTU October 9th, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    But I did score some smoked wild Alaska red salmon from my friend.

    Comes direct from the Kenai river.

    Luscious.

    :)

    It amazes me how someone can hack into this newspaper’s blog files and try to obtain personal information. How can this be ???? Doreen, yes I was at Dodger Stadium and when Urbie went yard the left field stands were rocking the 51 year old stadium. Almost like when Boone went deep in 2003

    Good job to get girardi done quickly. Now all cashman needs to do is acquire a 2B, SS, 3B, C, OF and pitching. #NYY

    ————————

    2B Omar Infante
    SS Re-signed Ryan
    3B Juan Uribe
    C Romine
    RF Carlos Beltran (Soriano LF, Gardner CF)
    DH Jeter/Re-signed Reynolds

    Pitching:

    Sabathia/Nova/Scott Kazmir/Scott Baker/Pineda rotation

    Robertson/Kelley/Clairborne/re-signed Logan/Cabral/Warren/Phelps bullpen

    Cervelli/Reynolds/re-signed Nix/Almonte bench

    Soriano, Jeter, and Beltran are the only old players assuming A-Rod is gone.

    Sabathia is the oldest pitcher at 33, Baker second oldest at 32, Logan third at 31 and the oldest reliever.

    Only four pitchers over 29 years old.

    Infante, Uribe, Beltran, Kazmir, and Baker signed, Ryan, Reynolds, and Logan re-signed, Jeter back on his player’s option.
