This will be the last installment in the managerial candidate series. There are more candidates, but I cannot seriously imagine any of them being awarded the position. Joe Girardi still stands in my mind as a viable possibility, and will be our final “contestant.”
Is the former Cubs catcher the right man for the job? Let’s weigh the good and bad…
-Won one World Series title (and counting) managing the Yankees, so he must be doing something right.
-Would come already “Chicago proof.”
-Is a friend to motorists in distress.
-Comes with Kerry Wood stamp of approval.
-Won Manager of the Year award in 2006, when his team had a winning percentage of .481. How do you do that?!?!
-Looks like a manager. No, really. He does.
-Who in their right mind would want to go from the Yankees to the Cubs???
–He is possibly an undercover Sith Lord.
-I had a third negative, but I forget what it was.
The Bottom Line:
I’d take him.
