With Joe Girardi officially back in New York and Mike Scioscia and Jerry DiPoto hugging it out in Los Angeles/Anaheim/does it really matter anymore, we head into mid-October with four open managerial positions. With that in mind, I’ve decided to creative a managerial wish-list for each team based on the following criteria: 1. A list of the top four candidates, compiling the names of multiple names that have either been already interviewed by the team, are set to interview down the road, and have been referenced as nominees by multiple outlets. 2. Out of the following four candidates, who makes the best fit and SHOULD BE the manager (This is completely subjective on my part). 3. Of the following four candidates, who is the most likely person to be hired by that respective team (again… completely subjective) 4. WILD CARD *******!

Hey here's a switch. Joe Girardi does not top at least one team's managerial wish list.
The Mariners have composed a very long "short" list of perhaps 20 or more names but Girardi's name is nowhere to be found. That of course is not because they don't view Girardi as a very good manager but very likely because they understand the six-year Yankees manager...
Don’t worry Yankees fans, Joe Girardi won’t be leaving the Bronx in the offseason.
The veteran manager, who led New York to a World Series championship in 2009 and has reached the playoffs in four of his six seasons with the club, agreed to a four-year, $16 million deal on Wednesday to remain in pinstripes, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The Yankees accomplished their first order of business for the offseason bringing back manager Joe Girardi on a four-year deal the team announced this afternoon.
Girardi had sat on the offer since Friday. He finished up a three-year contract worth $9 million after 2013. Girardi was believed to receive a significant raise in this deal. The Yankees did not want to lose Girardi to...
Contrary to earlier reports (including here), the New York Yankees have re-signed their manager, Joe Girardi, to a four-year contract extension through the 2017 season. Speculation was rampant that the multiple managerial openings (most notably the Chicago Cubs position) would entice Girardi out of the Bronx. The 48-year old Illinois native has guided the Yankees to the best record...
This post was supposed to be about Joe Girardi's new contract with the Yankees. I thought I would be writing about the new deal and speculating about what he would do during the life of it. I also thought I would be writing about it sooner than today. We were all given the impression that the negotiation would be quick and painless and that Girardi would, by now, be preparing...
It's official. The Yankees have announced that Joe Girardi will return in 2014. Girardi signed a four year deal worth $16 million- $4 million a year. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com was the first to report the signing:
The deal makes him the second highest-paid manager in baseball behind the Angels' Mike Scioscia, who signed a 10-year $50 million contract back...
After speculation that he would go home and manage the Chicago Cubs, the Yankees have announced that they have re-signed Joe Girardi. The new deal will keep the manager in pinstripes through the 2017 season, and is worth a total of $16 million which could increase due to bonuses.
Girardi, who turns 49 next week, is coming off what is probably his best year as a manager, even though...
New York Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner expressed a sense of urgency Tuesday in resolving the status of manager Joe Girardi who is receiving interest from the Chicago Cubs.
"I think both sides understand and I think Joe understands and believes we need to get this done sooner rather than later because of (the Yankees' upcoming organizational meetings...
It is no secret now that the Chicago Cubs are in pursuit of Joe Girardi as the next Cubs manager. In fact, we reported yesterday that Cubs president Theo Epstein is prepared to top the current offer that the New York Yankees have made to Girardi. MLB.com's Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch says that offer is for three years and $12-$15 million.
Girardi's contract expires...
It quickly became evident that the Los Angeles Angels would once again fail to make the playoffs this season. As such, there was speculation that manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto could be shown the door after four consecutive years of missing the playoffs, doing so over the past two years with a star-studded roster carrying high expectations. Instead, the...
Saying the New York Yankees have a lot of work to do this off-season is the understatement of the century.

So far, the Yankees have gotten off to a good start by inking skipper Joe Girardi to a 4-year, for around $16 million this past week.
The Yankees were already...
We heard various reports and speculation that the Cubs were willing to go all out in order to make Joe Girardi their next manager but now that we can cross that possibility off the list it’s time to take a look at the realistic candidates for the job.
CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the team “appears to be honing in” on “a very short list” of serious candidates including...
Cubs decisionmakers were not surprised that Joe Girardi decided to stay managing the Yankees where he's spent most of the last 18 years as a manager coach broadcaster and player and now Chicago appears to be honing in on a very short list of serious candidates including the already interviewed duo of A.J. Hinch and Manny Acta.
Cubs people will not label anyone as a "favorite...
Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto and long-time skipper Mike Scioscia will both be staying on for next season despite year-long speculation that at least one of them would be dismissed after a fourth consecutive playoff absence.
Coaches Rob Picciolo and Jim Eppard however will not return.
Picciolo had just completed his third year as Scioscia’s bench coach and Eppard was completing...
