Joe Girardi Is A Liar, Pt 2

Today Joe Girardi apologized for lying to the media throughout the season. This comes after he was caught lying about whether or not Mariano Rivera is injured. (He is.)

Why did a deeply religious man like Joe Girardi get caught in a lie so many times? Because he's a deply religious man and, as such, he doesn't know how to lie, or to cover up a lie.

Girardi has promised to be more forthcoming in the future. We'll see how that goes, especially if Brian Cashman doesn't come back as GM; a different GM who didn't hire Girardi may not have the patience for a man who's bad at lying.

Update, 9/27/08: During last night's/this morning's game (*yawn*) against the Red Sox, announcer Michael Kay said that Girardi lied about Mo because the closer wanted to be the one to tell the media he was injured. Joe, please! Mariano Rivera is no longer your teammate. Stop acting like he is!

Hey, Bern. I agree about Girardi acting like he's still everyone's teammate. He really needs to make adjustments in his managerial style next year if all the rumors are true! Sorry we missed being on the radio together last month.
