  • How does Girardi feel about taking the job now?

    I feel sorry for Joe Girardi. He signs his deal before Florida starts their fire sale. His team looked like:
    LF: Cabrera
    CF: Pierre
    RF: Hermida
    3B: Lowell
    SS: Gonzalez
    2B: Castillo
    1B: Delgado
    C: Lo Duca

    The rotation was going to be young, but he still would have Beckett in there. The NL East, IMO, will be weaker this year (Mets fans, your team does not have enough pitching depth and I see the loss of Leo Mazzone as being huge for the Braves) and may have been winnable for the Marlins with the team that they had. Girardi now has to contend with a team made up of Jeff Conine, Dontrelle Willis, Miguel Cabrera, and then about 20-something rookies.
    Baseball is not a popularity contest. It's about one thing.

    Winning.

    I think he would not have signed the deal if he had known.

    But on the other hand it is a tremendous challenge to prove his qualities as a manager.

    I wish him all the luck in the world!!

      I don't know what he would have done, but my guess he would have signed up if he had known. There are only 30 ML managing jobs and Joe Torre has the one he wants. Also, if he flops in Miami no one will blame him. If, miraculously, he succeeds he will get all the credit which will make him one hot property.

        Conine signed with the O´s but hey there is still Frank Thomas out there
        The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair

            If I was Joe, I'd be calling Mulligan!
            "After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

              They'd be crazy to sign Frank Thomas to play in the field unless they WANT him to get hurt and play 40 games.

              And being the Marlins, I wouldn't put it past them.
