That's surprising and disappointing

10 yr run, finish 200 games over 500..is there like a better manager available. I can't imagine what went into the decision to not bring him back?

And it was a year where the team vastly exceeded expectations

I am reading the decision was for a few reasons:
- Joe might be burned out from the NYC spotlight and needed a fresh start
- The Yankees really want to embrace advanced analytics and want someone to champion that
- They are looking for someone that is younger to better relate to our prospects

Here's what concerns me, especially about the third point. Yes, we might end up with the next Dave Roberts, but it is probably more likely that we end up with the next Matt Williams

fishmike said: Yes. Sometimes I confuse the alerts with when your mom calls. BTW she said defensive guards are really important.

at this point, he would have had to win it all, I don't even think a ws appearance would have made a difference.

+1
Whoever we get, he has to win the ring or leave immediately. Not a great job, but certainly a great challenge.

Sad for Joe, not a fan of the decision
The only things that trickle down are wages and horse shit
