You only hear good things about Joe Girardio. He has been successful; backs his players; get a lot out of his players and his never gone against his bosses in public. Girardi has been ripped by writers for his computer driven strategies and by EDB for his Sunday punch less lineups.
There’s player who is a detractor to Girardi and that is Ichiro. Ichiro, all smiles during his workout with the Marlins, is happy to be away from Girardi. Ichiro was not happy with how he was used as a Yankee, last season. Ichiro did not like coming off the bench and being used as a “bench player.” That is typical of a player who does not get playing time. Unless there are major injuries in Miami, Ichiro will serve as a part time player.
