Report: Joe Girardi “Favorite” For the Phillies Job

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles stink.

Let’s get it back to the Phillies.

Joe Girardi reportedly interviewed again with the Phils today, according to Jim Salisbury at NBC Sports Philadelphia:

On Monday, the club will host Joe Girardi at Citizens Bank Park in a second interview for the team’s open manager’s job.

Girardi met with team officials last Monday in the New York metropolitan area. He is the third candidate to receive a second interview for the position. Dusty Baker and Buck Showalter visited Philadelphia for second interviews on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

David Kaplan, of ESPN 1000 in Chicago went as far to call Girardi the “clear favorite” for the gig:

Hmm… and here’s what Jon Heyman had to say about it:

Heyman also said:

Hear Mets will not be rushed no matter where other searches stand. Philly seems further along, and Girardi has decent chance there — but word is an offer to anyone from another team won’t speed up the Mets’ process. Reportedly Beltran, Perez Bogar also still in Mets mix

Carlos Beltran to the Mets would be something else. I’ll take Girardi though. Thank you, next.
