I realize this is OT, but I'm curious.

Mattingly, because I hate the Skanks and think he'd be the worst fit.

Where's the option for Joe Torre?

I guess I'll go with Mattingly, though it would be devastating to me if he fails; he was my favorite Yankee growing up.

I'm going with Girardi for 2 reasons:

1. I think he's the most qualified for the position

2. If you hire Girardi, and it doesn't work out, Mattingly will most likely still be in the organization, and available to manage the team. If you hire Mattingly, and it doesn't work, you have to deal with a very awkward firing of a Yankee icon, and Girardi will most likely not be available.

I don't really see a clear-cut good choice there:

Mattingly: I don't really see how or why he would be a great manager. It has always seemed like it was a matter or when and not if he would become manager of the Yankees. But for what reason? Good players don't always make good managers.

Girardi: Already butted heads once with management. His style might work with a young team but might not work with vets. Especially vets he played with.

Pena: Does anybody really believe that this guy is a viable candidate?

See that's something I don't understand. The whole "if he doesn't work out, how can they fire him" question. Well, they got rid of a manager who won 4 World Series and never missed the postseason in his tenure are manager. How or why would Mattingly be immune for the same standards and they same repercussions?

I actually agree with all of that

Mattingly has never won anything as a player and not even as an assistant under Torre. The "Curse of Donnie Baseball" will always seem to be here when he's here. At least Girardi won three World Series with the Yankees and won coach of the year in Florida. He has some experience and that's more than Mattingly has.

It would be great if he could manage every game wearing:

Ask Mattingly to be patient for another 2 seasons as bench coach and install Pena or Girardi. You can't throw Mattingly into this situation.

Mattingly is not gonna get the job because he's too beloved by Yankees fans to ever be a fall man. And the Yankees need a guy to take the blame next season. Cashman certainly doesn't want it.

Girardi's the man...

and think he'd be good with a decent crop of youngsters coming up. Agree partly on SBoB's point regarding him dealing with vets - but I don't think the Yanks are filled with vets with attitudes and they're a bunch of guys who will respect their coach, I believe.

As a Yankees fan it's tough - not a big fan of the Steinbrenner Boys...

Pena is on the list because MLB forces teams to at least interview a minority.

If that wasn't the case, and the Yanks were really looking at another option in the organization, Bowa would probably get an interview instead.

LaRussa agreed to a two year deal to stay with the Cardinals.

Girardi met with the Yankees for 6 hours. What the hell are they doing in there for 6 hours?

Vote for Pena

I can not vote above, but I think Pena is the best choice.

Mattingly not ready yet. Girardi a bit too arrogant for a team that is going to be illed with well-paid, accomplished veterans who are going to be expected to win.

Pena has managed before (2004 AL Manager of the year), his Latin/Spanish background has value to a team where half the every day players have the same background, his age difference will make it easier for the players to respect him, he has worked closely with Posada the last couple of years so should be a good conduit for feedback from the team. And if it does not work out they can fire him in 2 years or less and bring Mattingly on. Mattingly is going to get his shot, and there will be plenty of pressure when he does, no need to make it worse by having him follow torre.
