With all due respect to Red Sox nation, I congratulate you on a victory and another championship. However, as is typical on ESPN the Yankees are bigger news.
Two little tidbits that arose last night.
1. Arod has opted out of his contract, so he is offically gone from NY
2. Joe Girardi is set to be named the new manager of the Yankees
This of course was all sourced by Buster Olney.
As a Yankee fan of almost 30 years (started when I was 3 years old, damn it) I am happy to see ARod take a walk. HE is a hell of a talent, but his lack of presence in October wore on NY fans.
With regard to Girardi, I understand the choice, but am surprised slightly it was not Mattingly. Although, if Girardi bombs he will be easier to get rid of then Donnie baseball, as the fans might revolt if Donnie were to be fired
