Yankees announce Joe Girardi is out as manager

An eerie quiet in The Bronx with Girardi's Yankees' future in flux

In a statement released via his agent, Steve Mandell, Girardi said that he appreciated the organization having given him the opportunity to lead the team. During Girardi's 10 years with the team, the Yankees went 910-710, and were the winningest team in baseball.

The news, first reported by David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in chicago, comes less than a week after the Yankees were ousted from the playoffs in Game 7 of the ALCS by the Houston Astros.

Girardi released a statement as well, sounding disappointed that he wouldn't be returning for another season with the Bronx Bombers, and casting doubt on initial reports that the split was mutual.

"I would like to thank the players for the relationships that we have fostered over the last 10 years but most important, how hard they played every day". I would like to thanks Ben Tuliebitz for making our travel easy and always taking care of our families.

During Girardi's tenure, the Yankees reached the postseason six times, including three American League East titles (2009, '11-12) and three Wild Card berths (2010, '15, '17).

As for the Yankees, there is no clear candidate in line to take over as manager, and candidates both inside and outside the organization are expected to be considered for the role.

"I love what I do", he said. "They come first. Because I think when you have a job, your family has to buy in, too".

The Yankees could look for Girardi's replacement internally. So I'll sit down, talk to my wife and my kids and see where they're at and what they're thinking.

Andrew Marchand: Internally, Rob Thomson could be the choice.
