Adjust Comment Print

ESPN reports that Joe Girardi agreed to part ways with the team following the conclusion of his four-year, $16 million contract.

Doesn't seem like that's the case. but either way, Mayor G says Girardi should have no problem finding his next gig - 'cause he's already a bona fide Hall of Famer! I'd like to thank the Steinbrenner family for believing in me and giving me this wonderful opportunity.

After the Yankees were eliminated in Game 7 of the ALCS by the Houston Astros, Girardi stopped short of saying he absolutely wanted to return.

"I would like to thank the players for the relationships that we have fostered over the last 10 years but most important, how hard they played every day", Girardi said. "I would like to thank Brian Cashman and his staff for hiring me and always trying to improve the team". "He should take great pride in our accomplishments during his tenure". Girardi took over for Joe Torre after the 2007 season. His overall record at the team's helm was 910-710.

In Girardi's case, it is not a bad time for him to explore the market, as The Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies are both in search for managers. While he had been criticized in the past for taking starting pitchers out of games early, his decision to take Luis Severino out of the AL Wild Card game after recording just one out proved correct.

But days later, Girardi would shoulder the blame for the Yankees' loss to the Cleveland Indians. In addition, he has a drive for college football, and he's also considering serving as an athletic director.

The team late Thursday morning made it official and issued a statement, thanking Girardi, but adding, "Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration".
