Bob Klapisch gets three more years in which to bury Joe Girardi

So Joe Girardi’s contract seems to be in order. Three more years, around $9 million dollars. Keep things running as-is, the Yankees are saying.  Is everyone happy? Nah, Bob Klapisch isn’t:

Girardi gets three more years to wean himself off managing-by-numbers. Good luck.

Not that ripping Girardi for actually playing the percentages is anything new for Klapisch. But even if Klapisch can’t help himself, you’d think the guy would get more than, oh 360 days after winning the World Series before having to wean himself off anything. But then again, I’ve never understood New York.

What I would like to see, though, is what kind of reception Girardi would get from the media if he did something just totally counter-intuitive, it backfired, and then when asked about it he said “I know the book said not to do that, but I had a gut feeling.”

Figure he’d be celebrated for it?
