Smartest Guy In The Room

Pete Abraham writes in the Journal News that Joe Girardi thinks his interviews yesterday with the Yankee brass went well.  One thing’s for sure after hearing Hank Steinbrenner: whomever the Yankees settle on for the next skipper, Hank will be sure that he’s a smart guy.

.. "We’re not stupid," Hank Steinbrenner said.

.. "He (Girardi) appears to be very smart," Hank Steinbrenner said. "That’s his reputation – smart, tough when he has to be. And he can be easy when he has to be. He has baseball smarts, his handling of pitching, the fact that he’s been a catcher and a smart catcher."

.. Bobby Valentine is not being considered as manager. "He’s certainly a smart guy, but probably not," Hank Steinbrenner said.
