Girardi to O's: You guys suck

Joe Girardi has turned down the Baltimore Orioles' managerial job.

Girardi has declined an offer from the Baltimore Orioles to become their next manager, his agent, Steve Mandel, told ESPN on Thursday.

Girardi interviewed with the Orioles on Tuesday, and ESPN's Peter Gammons reported that the team offered him their vacant managerial job. And ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney reported that as of Wednesday night, the two sides had agreed to work on an agreement that would make Girardi the team's next skipper.

The discussions with Girardi came after Baltimore fired Sam Perlozzo after two-plus seasons as manager (source).
A source on the condition of anonymity (just kidding) has told Scott Proctor's Arm that Girardi was the only one who interviewed for this job.
