Joe Girardi is My New Idol
Friday, May 23, 2008
Last May, the floundering Yanks found their spark after A-Rod pulled a "bush" move (ps: every time I hear that term I picture Dubya doing whatever it was that was called bush, i.e. hollering and pumping his fist on the mound a la Jobamania) in Tampa with the "MINE!" holler that jacked up what would have been an easy play for the third baseman and shortstop. After that game, the Yanks pulled themselves up by their bootstraps (cleatstraps?) and turned their season around in grand fashion, making it to the playoffs after some pessimists had counted them out.

This year, Girardi took matters into his own hands:

It worked, too: moments after his Piniella-esque tantrum, Cano stepped up to the plate and laid down the game winning RBI single.

When was the last time a Yankees manager showed such passion? Certainly not our dear pat-on-the-back-lovin' Torre. Will this be the spark the Yankees needed?? Methinks tis certainly a good omen - I'm suddenly ready to lay a bet down on my team!

    That's awesome – the TV feed never quite captures the mood of the crowd.

    However I'm wondering why Joe felt the need to go get his hat and then come alllll the way back & argue some more.

    Just leave the hat, Joe. No one's gonna take it.

    Brilliant Martin-esque tantrum by Joe Girardi. The win was more than welcome, hopefully we can get a W-streak going now.
    We really do need it.

    I'm thinking he was going to walk off but, as he was getting his hat, decided to say a few more things.

    Double hat-slam with a side of dirt kick!

    It would have been better had it not been planned and staged. It had fake written all over it.

    When you have to put on an act like that it makes it pathetic, not heroic.
