And they did it way ahead of schedule. The last time I was at Yankee Stadium for a Yanks-Sox game someone had a sign that read;
After every disaster endured by Boston fans over the years it was a real fear for the faithful. But just 3 years later Beantown has another championship parade and look to be contenders for the foreseeable future. Then the Yankees stepped all over the celebration by announcing that Joe Girardi will be the new manager passing over Donnie Baseball and Alex Rodriguez will become a free agent. Today's news is that Joe Torre will take the helm of the Los Angeles Dodgers after being shit on by the Bombers management.
The Yankees know how to manage the news cycle almost as good as the Bush administration. I don't know why but this reminds me of Rumsfeld being fired the day after the 2006 election. Spin it all you want but you still lost.
