Yesterday, for the first time, I actually watched the Joe Girardi Show on YES. I had seen it advertised, and caught bits here and there but never took in a whole show. And this week especially piqued my interest, being that it was such a rough week for the Yanks.
Now I am far from a Girardi apologist, and have scratched my head countless times this year wondering where he was coming from- but I have to say I was impressed. I liked his direct answers to a lot of "What were you thinking?" questions from PA favorite Michael Kay, and emails from the viewers.
At the end of the show, Kay basically asked of the Yankees were out of it, to which Girardi very succinctly said no they weren't. And waking up this morning 5 games out of the wild card, after all that's happened this season, I think you'd be a fool not to believe him.
Although I definitely believe his job is safe, this next month and a half will certainly go a long way as to deciding where Joe G stands in the eyes of Yankee fans.
