…. Wow

So, the Yankees have chosen Joe Girardi to be their new manager, and now Donnie Baseball can go back to Indiana, having been jilted at the altar by the new hierarchy in the Bronx, and wow, oh, wow, has this ended up different than everyone thought it would. I’m not saying Girardi’s a bad choice, not by a long shot. I hoped the Giants would go after him the minute he was fired by the Marlins. It just seems like Mattingly was brought back specifically to take over for Torre, and he must be devastated:

“Don was extremely disappointed to learn today that he wasn’t the organization’s choice to fill the managerial vacancy,” said a statement from the agent Ray Schulte.

The statement thanked Steinbrenner for his “initial faith” and concluded: “Don will use this time to reflect on this experience while considering future family and career options. In the meantime, he did inform the Yankees that given the circumstances he won’t accept a coaching position within the organization during 2008.”

Ouch.
