Yankees Fire Joe Girardi, Will Reportedly Seek an 'Analytics-Driven' Manager

  • Joe Girardi's future with the Yankees remains uncertain

The New York Yankees announce that they will not be re-signing Joe Girardi as manager.

There have been rumors circulating for weeks that Girardi was feeling burnt out, and was ready to step away from baseball - at least temporarily - to spend more time with his family.

"With a heavy heart, I come to you because the Yankees have decided not to bring me back", Girardi told WFAN upon learning of his fate on Thursday morning.

Girardi had just completed the final year of a four-year, $16 million contract. The Yankees performed above the expectations of many with a young team this year, finishing with a 91-71 record.

Girardi won a 2009 World Series with the Yankees but before this season hadn't reached a playoff series since 2012.

Most of Microsoft's messaging around Xbox One X has emphasized how current games are even better on this improved hardware. You can see that the leak was more or less spot on, and according to gematsu , Black has also been added to the list.

Girardi took significant criticism for his team's loss in Game 2 of the ALDS versus the Cleveland Indians after failing to ask for a replay review on a strikeout that was incorrectly called a hit batsman. "He should take great pride in our accomplishments during his tenure, and I wish Joe and his family nothing but success and happiness in the future". "I would like to thank Brian Cashman and his staff for hiring me and always trying to improve the team".

This year, the team came within one game of going to the World Series before losing to the Houston Astros.

The Yankees could look for Girardi's replacement internally.

Girardi released a statement as well, sounding disappointed that he wouldn't be returning for another season with the Bronx Bombers, and casting doubt on initial reports that the split was mutual. Tony Pena, the first base coach of the Yankees has managed in the majors before, so he is also an option.
