Mattingly and Girardi – currently the top two candidates for the prestigious and nearly impossible-to-execute role of “fill Torre’s shoes without alienating the team by being too radical (the boys are, of course, accustomed to the milk-and-cookies, pat-on-the-back management style) but providing a little spark to prove to the fans that they can expect some actual change” – have completed their first interviews with Steins Big and Little. I would imagine any word from the IYD (Important Yankees Dudes… jeez, how many times do I have to tell you?!) will be a ways off, but both Donnie and Joey submitted themselves to press conferences after their respective interviews to let us know how they thought things went.
