Be Honest Sox Fans, Joe Girardi Is The Best AL Skipper

OK, we're going to advocate something that may upset many of our readers: Joe Girardi should be named AL Manager Of The Year. Despite effectively dropping out of playoff contention this week-end, the 2016 Bronx Embalmers have no business even sniffing October. Take a look at their 'post-unload' roster. Talk about the Island Of Misfit Toys! Think about it, John Farrell has a roster chock-full of emerging young, athletic superstars—guys like Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley, Jr., and Andrew Benintendi. Girardi has Gary Sánchez. Period. Even in 2015, a pathetic Yankee team in fact did make the post-season—and it was almost totally due to Girardi's managing skills. He might get eviscerated in the shameful New York sports media, but, as far as we can see, he's the best skipper in the American League.
