Today the Yankeees agreed to a three-year $9 million deal with Joe Girardi with an additional $450,000-$500,000 in ALCS/World Series incentives.
Will Girardi walk away from the Yankees disgusted and insulted? Absolutely not. Because this is the nature of the business and Torre was probably a little too sensitive the last time around.
If he really wanted to stay with the Yankees, he would have just accepted the deal back then. But both parties moved on and for the Yankees it has been for the better. They’ve won a World Series under Girardi and despite being disappointed in 2010, will have another decent shot at a title in 2011.
I wonder if the members of the media that always stuck up for Torre blindly will notice the same similarities I have here.
