Food for Thought
Joe Girardi’s contract with the Yankees expires following the 2010 season.
Girardi has long been a favorite of Chicago Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry, who, ironically, have a managerial opening for 2011.
Former Yankees great Don Mattingly, Joe Torre’s bench coach during his final years in New York and now with the Dodgers, will manage this off-season in the Arizona Fall League.
Many thought Mattingly would eventually take over for Torre, assuming he retired as Yankees manager.
The scenario is different, but could the result be the same?
Girardi leaves for Chicago, with Mattingly taking over the Yankees?
