In the least surprising managerial move of the offseason, the Yankees re-signed manager Joe Girardi to a 3-year deal worth $9 million dollars.

I know many people were upset with his performance this postseason, but this is the right decision. Girardi has been known to trust match-ups a lot and that is what he did in the playoffs - and unfortunately he got burnt by that a few times.
But in the end this is my opinion - all human managers suck. If a team wanted the ideal leader they would use a computer to make the decisions for them. But as long as they do not hurt the team too much and he is competent in their interactions with the players and coach, they are fine.
So in conclusion, my reaction to them re-signing Girardi - "Whatever."
