You never know what's going on behind the scenes, but in the end it's about expectations and if the manager is meeting them or not.

But yes, I would be doing jumping jacks if the Braves hired Girardi. Or Farrell for that matter.

Yes please!!! Either one!

Reports the Yankees were upset Girardi didn't use more of a "human touch" when managing. He was connected with the players but not as much as the powers that be wanted. They want someone to come in and really strengthen the clubhouse. Girardi was all business. Theyre also looking for someone fluent in analytics.

They hired Chili Davis as hitting coach. Forget who they hired as 3B coach, but both guys were on John Farrell's staff last year in the same position.

Texiera spoke about the Girardi decision. He played for Girardi from 2009-2016. Tex said Girardi wasn't the best communicator and was too intense. Yankees are looking for a laid back, fun loving guy this time around.

Angels have agreed to a 5 year deal worth $106M with Justin Upton.

With a full no-trade clause. JUp did well for himself.

Well, good move for both the Angels and J-Up. That's actually a team friendly deal.

Astros first base coach and former Baltimore Oriole Rich Dauer had to have emergency surgery Friday to deal with a blood clot in his brain. Surgery was successful.

Yikes.
