At this point I think the Phillies fan base has the ability to bully John Middleton into making any move. First it was getting Harper, then it was firing Kapler, and now hiring Girardi. Let’s keep this going Phillies fans and get him to sign Gerrit Cole, trade for Mike Trout, Mookie Betts, and an entire revamped bullpen.
I’m happy to have Girardi in town, I think? All I can picture is him in a Yankees uniform and it repulses me, but it’ll be nice to see him in red pinstripes. As long as the season doesn’t collapse after the all star break this year you’ll be able to say this has been a good hiring.
