    If Girardi Walks Away......

    If Girardi decides to walk away to coach the Cubs, or whoever, who do the Yankees turn to as their new Skipper? Just saw that Scoisca was told he is coming back, who else is out there to take the reigns? Does Pena get a shot? Thoughts?

    Doesn't look like it's Pena

    Via Nick Cafardo: Bench coach Tony Pena is not likely to replace Joe Girardi as manager if the incumbent winds up heading elsewhere this winter. “I don’t think anyone in our front office is even thinking about that,” said one Yankees official, referring to Girardi leaving and not Pena receiving consideration for the job.

    Pena, 56, has been with the Yankees since 2005, first as the first base coach (2006-2008) and then as the bench coach (2009-present). He managed the Royals from 2002-2005 and won the Manager of the Year award in 2003. He also manages in winter ball just about every year. Experience is not an issue for Pena, who has been considered for other big league openings in recent years. That includes the Yankees after 2006 and the Red Sox after 2011. He’s reportedly a very player-friendly coach and after these last few years, he’s familiar with the New York market. I’m sure the Bombers would consider him for the job again, but I never thought it was a slam dunk that he’d automatically take over as manager if Girardi left.

    Everything doesn't need to be in one thread. And the possibility of losing Girardi is a pretty big deal at this point.

    I agree, however we already have a Girardi thread in which this discussion was taking place.
