Joe Girardi admits he hasn’t lost the managing itch

New York Post Sports 2 months ago

HOUSTON — Joe Girardi is back in the postseason as a broadcaster, but he wants to return as a manager. With the Mets dumping Mickey Callaway, the 54-year-old Girardi is hoping for a call from Brodie Van Wagenen or any other team interested in hiring him as a manager.

After the Astros’ 6-2 win over the Rays in Game 1 of the ALDS, Girardi told The Post he is looking forward to getting back to the dugout.

“I do want to manage again, so we’ll see what happens,’’ said Girardi, who managed the Yankees for 10 years, compiling a 910-710 record and winning the 2009 World Series, the most recent Yankees World Series. His Yankees were beaten in seven games by the Astros in the 2017 ALCS. Girardi has the managerial and New York experience that is vital.

Girardi, as well as David Ross, will interview for the Cubs’ opening next week, according to multiple reports.

As for any new developments with the Mets since they fired Callaway on Thursday, Girardi said, “I don’t have anything.’’

On Thursday during the workout day, Girardi and Astros bench coach Joe Espada were having a conversation in the Houston dugout. Espada was one of Girardi’s coaches with the Yankees. His name has been mentioned as a Mets managerial candidate as well as Girardi’s.

Former catcher A.J. Pierzynski, who is now a broadcaster working with Girardi, spotted the two talking and said, “Where will the two Joes be next year?’’

Good question. Perhaps one will be at Citi Field managing the Mets.
