Joe Girardi was fired as New York Yankees manager Thursday after a decade that produced just one World Series title for a team that expects to win every year. Amazon was joined in record high prices by two other tech companies and rivals in cloud-computing that reported earnings Thursday afternoon, Microsoft Corp. and Alphabet Inc., which helped to push the Nasdaq composite index toward its strongest gains vs. the Dow Jones industrial average since 2002.
"I'm not surprised because he made a lot of questionable decisions in the post-season and obviously if he made it to World Series it would be a different situation", the Wayne, N.J., resident said outside the Yankee Clubhouse store.
Look, it's not a complete surprise that the New York Yankees told Joe Girardi that they would look elsewhere for a manager now that his contract has expired following the Yankees elimination in the American League Championship Series.
He previously managed the Royals in the early 2000s - back when no one could figure out the Royals, mind you - as his teams amassed a.410 winning percentage.
It's a sexy longshot, but a longshot nonetheless.
Innocenzi and Girardi had both been hanging out at the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house when they ended up talking and hitting it off. According to Daily Northwestern, the two ended up bonding after Innocenzi lost an earring.
Naehring, 50, has earned a reputation as one of Cashman's most trusted lieutenants, currently serving as the team's vice president of baseball operations.
He was named one of the top 10 columnists in the country by the Associated Press Sports Editors in 2014 and also took first place in that category for New York State that same year. She didn't answer the phone and he knew that something was seriously wrong.
That possibility seems to be diminishing. I don't think anybody should be. Cashman has credited Naehring's influence for the acquisition of shortstop Didi Gregorius from Arizona prior to the 2015 season. "It's a hard day for me", he said then.
Girardi, 53, leaves the Bombers with a 910-710 managerial record since 2008. The 51-year-old Bell managed this season at Class A Advanced Tampa but has served as a big league bench coach with the D-backs and Reds. He also interviewed for and was offered the Orioles' job, but turned it down and instead worked as a broadcaster for the YES Network. She is a very religious person and spends a great deal of time reading the bible and sharing her faith with others. He has a better winning pct as manager than Joe Torre and Tony LaRussa. There are more stars just over the horizon, waiting to be called up.
But there's no reason, explanation or excuse for this move.
"He made some mistakes in that Houston game", Aponte said, referring to the final matchup when starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia and reliever Tommy Kahnle gave up four runs.
- Al Pedrique, the manager of the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate, could get some consideration, when you factor in the relationship he has with the young core players on the team already.
Perhaps he can bring Zach Britton out of the bullpen - oops, I mean out of Baltimore - since Britton is also a free-agent after next season. Three years after they graduated, Girardi proposed.
Chicago Cubs bench coach Dave Martinez is always a hot name for these openings. With the current makeup of the Yankees roster, it's quite possible that it may be easier for them to do it with someone new.
