Girardi, Named the best unemployed manager...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20061115/ap_on_sp_ba_ne/bbo_managers_of_the_year

I get so tired of the political back stories in business. I deal with it every day and it frustrates me when I see it occur in sports, a pastime that I know I hold in a near utopian regard.

But for now, I would like someone to explain to me why a manager who was able to take what was essentially a AAAA team and pull off a .481 season? This man belongs with a team and not in a broadcast booth. This isn't knocking down Pinella, but it seems like there's a few clubs out there that could have used someone like Joe.
