BBB Reacts: Yankees' disappointing end to the 2018 season

Well, it's been just about a week now since the Boston Red Sox eliminated the Yankees from playoff contention and we've all had some time to stew on it.  Obviously not the ending any of us wanted and made even more painful due to the fact that it was our arch-rivals who put the nail in the coffin.Some of our contributors weigh in below about how this season ended, what to make of it all, and where the Yankees go from here heading into 2019.

MLB Network to hire ex-Yankees' skipper Joe Girardi

The MLB Network is hiring former Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi as a Studio Analyst and could announce the hiring on Wednesday. Girardi is expected to make his debut on MLB Tonight on Wednesday at 6pm Eastern with Billy Ripken, Mike Lowell and Greg Amsinger.

As we all know, Girardi’s contract was not renewed by the Yankees despite the team’s success last season. The Yankees opted to go in another direction and hire the younger and more energetic Aaron Boone in hopes that he could relate more easily to the young players on their roster. At only 53-years-old and coming off a remarkable tenure as Yankee manager, Girardi should be a prime candidate for managerial openings in the future.  

Although he was mentioned as a candidate for several managerial openings this offseason, nothing ultimately came of it. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Girardi back on the bench sometime in the next few years. Until then however, you can tune in to MLB Network to see the former Yankee skipper.
