This winter, the New York Yankees will be faced with a ton of decisions to make regarding the makeup of their 2014 Opening Day roster. Among the pending free-agencies of Robinson Cano, Hiroki Kuroda and Curtis Granderson, the Yanks are also facing the task of bringing back manager Joe Girardi. Girardi hasn’t directly said what he really wants to do this winter, as he has only said that he plans on taking some time to discuss things over with his family, but he has been hinting at the fact that he wants to return to manage the Yankees in ’14 and beyond. The Yankees really want him back, Girardi sounds like he wants to come back, and both sides have every reason to want the same thing. There isn’t much that happened to the Yankees in 2013 that can be traced back to the doings of Girardi. It’s not his fault that Brian Cashman and company didn’t do much to load his roster for the season.

  • They have got to resign Joe, the way this team hung in the race well into September was amazing. With all the injuries to key players they somehow managed to keep it interesting...and Joe is a major reason. The only thing I feel he should have done was can the use of Hughes after the All Star game because he sucks. Joba should have been sent packing also.
  • Hughes had so much potential GR. I thought he had ace potential when he first came up. Girardi did an amazing job this year. The Red Sox had like twenty players on the dl the year they lost to Tampa down the stretch two years ago with Francona. How do you call it a choke when you have that many players on the dl? Last year Valentine inherited a healthy veteran team like you've accurately posted and they had their worst season in years because of that moron. The Yankees will be back. They need to get younger. The sendoff for Mariano brought tears to my eyes. What a great move by Girardi and he caught him. Congrats to Andy too.
