As expected, Marlins "yes-man" general manager Larry Beinfest followed the marching orders of idiot owner Jeffrey Loria and undeservingly fired manager Joe Girardi.
However, things look bright for Girardi since REAL baseball people know that Girardi knows his business.
It was widely rumored that Girardi would be a top candidate to manage the Cubs when current manager Dusty Baker was dumped and CEO Andy MacPhail resigned.
BUT...Word on the street is that Girardi could end up as the manager of the Yankees new AAA affiliate in Scranton, PA if he wants it.
Interesting proposition. Does Girardi stay in the bigs and manage the Cubs OR go to AAA and be back in the mix to eventually succeed Joe Torre to manage the Yankees?
In the long run the best thing to happen to Joe is he's free of those two jack-asses in Florida.
