After Francona, Girardi might be the 2017 AL Manager of the Year. I thought the Yankees were going to be a last place team. Girardi’s two major strengths (bullpen management and handling youngsters) came to the fore this season. It blows my mind that he’s pulling starters with a lead after 4 2/3 innings … it’s the opposite of Torre, that’s for sure … and it’s absolutely working. Ride the hot hand of Chad Green and win September ball games. This is what we’ve been waiting for.
