Former manager Joe Girardi reportedly doing his due diligence on Mets

  Former manager Joe Girardi reportedly doing his due diligence on Mets Joe Girardi is doing his homework when it comes to landing his next managerial job.Girardi began doing his research on the Mets a couple of weeks before Callaway was let go, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. His ability to co-exist with the front office was one of the driving factors of his dismissal as manager of the New York Yankees, despite having managed them to a World Series title in 2009. If Girardi does return to the dugout — whether that be in New York, Chicago or elsewhere — the foundations of a solid working relationship with upper management will be an important box to check.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the New York Mets will interview Girardi for their vacant managerial job. Girardi joins former MLB great Carlos Beltran and current Arizona Diamondbacks Director of Player Development Mike Bell as known candidates.

Girardi managed for the Yankees from 2008-17, posting a combined 910-710 record and leading the team to its last World Series title back in 2009.

He also managed one season with the Miami Marlins, posting a 78-84 record. Girardi has in the recent past noted he’d like to return to managing.
