Yankees decide not to bring back Joe Girardi as manager

Fantasy Baseball Breaking News

There have been rumors circulating for weeks that Girardi was feeling burnt out, and was ready to step away from baseball - at least temporarily - to spend more time with his family.

"With a heavy heart, I come to you because the Yankees have decided not to bring me back", Girardi said in a statement, according to WFAN.

The news comes just days after Girardi's four-year, $16 million contract with the organization came to an end.

Yankees general manager Cashman said: "I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organisation".

The team late Thursday morning made it official and issued a statement, thanking Girardi, but adding, "Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration".

Phoenix Suns fire Earl Watson, name Jay Triano interim coach
The Suns would get a player two years removed from averaging 17.5 ppg, one who was also a top lottery pick just three years ago. The Suns are off to an 0-3 start and are allowing the most points per game in the league at this early stage of the season.

The Yankees will be looking for their first manager in 10 years.

Before becoming manager, Girardi played in the big leagues for 15 years. "He has a tireless work ethic, and put his heart into every game he managed over the last decade". He guided the club to the World Series title in 2009 and six playoff appearances. "He should take great pride in our accomplishments during his tenure". But after the Yankees lost to the Astros in the ALCS a week ago, Girardi asserted that there's no guarantee that he will return.

The 53-year-old Girardi led a young squad on a surprising run to an AL wild-card berth this year with a 91-71 record, the team's best since 2012.

ESPN reported that Girardi's next move could go one of a few ways. After the 2007 season, Mattingly was one of the three finalists to replace Torre, along with current Yankees bench coach Tony Pena.
