I thought it was stupid that they wanted him fired for his mistake.
People don't think....when has he done something that cost his team a championship or ended a playoff run that they were chosen to win/go all the way? Even the mighty saint Joe Torre has a number of those under his belt.
The other thing, the Yankees are a moneyball team, very into analytics like most of MLB. Managers these days aren't really managing by gut like the old days, but by numbers, and they go by the numbers the stats guys give him after running it through to the higher ups, it's why Joe is called Binder Joe...he doesn't deviate from the script....so who are we going to replace him with? A guy who's going to tell the higher ups no and just manage as he wishes? But that's not what the Yankees want, so this talk about Joe being fired was just media bull imo....it was a story and they know angry Yankee fans will click any fire Joe Girardi news link.
I love Joe, I hope he gets to taste a World Series victory as the Yankees skipper for all the seasons he's put in into this team. When he told the media how he explained to his kids that he's GOING TO GET boos before game 3 because of the mistake he made? True New Yorker and Yankee.
