    Re: Who should manage the 2018 Yankees?

    How are people actually thinking Joe was good this year? The Yankees have the worst record in baseball in 1 run games. A lot of that is on the manager. How many times did we have to suffer watching him cram Clippard and Chap down our throats while they were crashing and burning? I mean, Cashman had to beg the White Six to take him as part of a deal so Joe would stop using him to blow games for us. Sure we won 91 ganes, but easily could have been over 100 if Joe Blow wasn't making the calls during that awful stretch we had mid season. And it's stuff like this that remind me of how bad of a situational manager he truly is.

    I will be happy if he is gone in 2018. Too many times he cost us. And now I'm afraid he lost the players trust.

    Not to mention with still a shot at the Division not pulling Gray and then using Holder in a one run game.

    They think Girardi is the best manager ever I guess. I don't understand.

    I wouldn't mind seeing this group get a fresh start moving forward with a new skipper next season, but the idea that we could have easily won 100 games or more seems like a bit of a stretch. This was supposed to be a transition year with a developing young group of players forming the core. I suspect most people would agree that winning 91 games and getting into the playoffs was a remarkable accomplishment. This is still not a 100 win ballclub IMO.

    The 100 wins number is based on their actual play (RS, RA). Yes preseason projections had them being bad, but they played really well, and what held them back was the close games where Girardi either overmanaged them to Ls, or refused to change his bullpen plan *coighCLIPPYcough*

    Agree that there were times where overmanaging them may have led to losses, but he also deserves credit for getting a team with modest expectations at best to 91 wins, which no one really saw coming.

    Agree, I doubt Molitor leaves. This is why I voted Joe as I don't see a better option, Molitor was the only name that gave me any real confidence comparatively. Anyone else is a dart throw.

    I think more of the 1-run losses were player blunders than managerial. A new bullpen goat was emerging pretty much every week without warning or any reason to expect them to struggle. Chapman the team needed to get back on track and he was pulled from the closer role at around the right time or a tad late. I think Joe actually did a good job of motivating Chapman to find his fire again particularly the game where he had I think Shreve get up after Chapman struggled, that lit the fire that got Chapman back to being Chapman. Clippard, yea they stuck him in too many key situations for too long after he was struggling. I'll give you that. The bullpen wasn't that deep back then (no DRob, no Kahnle, Green was still emerging, Chapman was out) though so Clippard at the time was a guy that you would need to turn it around.

    Moves that immediately come to mind that he made that I think were quite positive:
    -sticking with Judge and eventually batting him 2nd to help get him back to a more patient approach. Also pulled him early from a game to end the strikeout streak and get that distraction over
    -riding Frazier's hot run and sitting Ellsbury
    -giving Hicks an opportunity to breakout
    -resting players, our team is fully healthy for the playoffs
    -gave Montgomery the 5th starter and didn't over or underwork him
    -pushing Sanchez to work on his blocking. Its still a work in progress but he's improved.

    Look I won't be sad if Joe is gone, its earned after having his worst managerial performance in one of the biggest moments, but its hard for me to be too critical when more often than not he has had made the right decisions. There's no manager we could possibly hire that we would all agree with in foresight on more than around 50% of close decisions.

    Re: Who should manage the 2018 Yankees?

    Joey Cora with Pena as his number one coach, fill in the rest with his choices.

    All of the current staff must go, the Yankees have been the second or third slowest in baseball history to hire minorities BUT it's time to wake up and get a man in position who understands baseballs Latin culture along with baseball knowledge. I don't care for forcing a culture into a frame work if the representative is a poor candidate but Cora is a highly respected man.

    Joe must go and it's not just because of a few bad moves in one game he simply has over stayed his run.

    IIRC, Jorge said he would be open to managing in the future.

    I'd give the job to him if he wants it.

    You don't fire the manager after the team exceeds all expectations and an MVP level player/Ace pitcher both emerged in one year. Unless there are clubhouse issues that we don't know about, it would be a stupid decision.

    So Girardi is responsible for Judge and Severino's performances?

I do not have access to most of that information and do not have time to collect what I might have access to.

    I just think it is time for a change. Girardi has his strengths and they could do a lot worse. but he freezes and does not adjust well in critical game situations. Last night obviously is exhibit A. I think he may be losing his club house now, and that is what might lead to his demise here.
    The humility of admitting what you don't know is commendable. If the management decides that there is not a better option out there, would you support that decision? I'm personally very happy with the job Girardi has done this year, but like you, I do not have any inside information or expertise on the available managers. If Cashman thinks somebody else can do better job, I'm open to see. I just think Girardi is doing very well, and I imagine the FO thinks the same thing given their expectations going into this season.

    I don't think it's implausible that he needs to win 3 to keep his job.
