I know the possibility of Girardi managing in Chicago next year has been hashed/rehashed here before. Until now, there really hasn't been good reason to believe that he would be let go from Florida- even he was quoted as saying that.
However, some interesting rumblings continue to brew from South Florida; the most recent being he Florida's owner basically not giving Girardi his due for the fantastic job he has done in Florida this year:
With Dusty managing every game lately as to make it impossible to even trust him as a bullpen coach next year, If Girardi is available- GET HIM!
I know there is extreme fondness around here for Fredi Gonzalez in Florida. I've said it before; between the two, the known entity here is Girardi. He has taken a minor league team and made it an almost-contender. His players respond to him. At this point, he would basically have a minor league team with a few outstanding players here in Chicago anyway next year. I don't see a better fit for the Cubs at this point than Girardi, if available.
