Yankees management and fans may not want to hear it, but Girardi in Chicago makes a lot of sense.
For one, the Cubs already fired manager Dale Sveum on Monday, per Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune. The fact that they did so merely hours after the season concluded would seem to indicate that the front office is hanging a sign out front of Wrigley Field that says, “Now Hiring! Inquire Within.”
And even though it’s a long shot that’s 105 years in the making, if Girardi could somehow manage (pun intended) to bring a title to the North Side, he would become something of a legend.
