Joe Girardi was honored by the March of Dimes as he took home the “Sportsman of the Year” award at a luncheon yesterday. Before the ceremony he spoke with reporters and Mark Feinsand of the Daily News passed on some of those quotes.
The best amoung them was probably the admission that though he sees right hander Phil Hughes as a starter, his role in 2010 depends on the outcome of this winter.
“A lot of our decisions will be based on what we do this winter,” Girardi said. “We still consider him a starter, but his role could depend on what we do this winter.”
