Cashman's short list

From Peter Abraham:

Just spoke to Brian Cashman. He said he reached out today to three candidates to become manager: Joe Girardi, Don Mattingly and Tony Pena.

The Yankees were interested in speaking to Trey Hillman, but by the time they had a vacancy, he had agreed to terms with the Royals. "Trey is somebody I talk to at least once a week,"” Cashman said. "But the timing wasn’t right."

Cashman said the process could be culiminated swiftly. But he also warned that it could take until after the World Series. "I’ll expand the pool of candidates if that is what I need to do," he said. (LoHud Yankees Blog)

I am opposed to Mattingly being the manager next year. I would love it if they hired Girardi. I would also support Bobby Valentine. His name has been mentioned but I don't think it will happen.

Why?

I think Girardi is more of a commitment than someone else they can pull out of a hat.

Mattingly will be the next long term manager, IMHO.

Rickey Henderson might be available. Unless you need a utility outfielder.

Joe Girardi is the best choice. He has proven that he can manage a MLB team, and well at that. He understands the players and has actually played with some of them in the past. Finally, as a catcher he not only understands the game, but pitchers in particular. Listen to him on Fox and Yes, he knows the game.
