One man's failure is another man's manager of the year

November 18, 2006 @ 10:44pm

Joe Girardi won baseball's National League manager of the year award six weeks after he was fired.

Since he's an ex-Yankee (catcher, broadcaster and then bench coach) Niki and I were rooting for him as a manager. When he was let go, he reportedly called one of his mentors who comforted him by basically saying "welcome to the world of MLB managers" -- like you haven't really been a baseball manger until you've been canned.

I've thought about Joe Girardi a lot this week and how someone can look at a guy as effective and someone else can tell the same guy he's ineffective and fire him.

And you wonder why I'm cynical.
