Joe Girardi reportedly interested in Mets manager job
The New York Mets and Joe Girardi appear to have mutual interest.
According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Girardi, who is also lined up to interview with the Chicago Cubs, is “keenly interested” in the open job in New York. Heyman hints that he may be more likely to get the Mets’ job, given the Cubs’ preference to stay in-house.
Joe Girardi, who has Cubs interview coming up, is said keenly interested in Mets as well. Both big market teams bring chance to win and he has roots in both cities. One thing: Cubs appear likely to stay in-house, Mets wide open. Also, clamoring for Joe G among Mets fans.

The good news for Girardi is that the Mets seem to be just as interested. It would make sense for both parties, too. Girardi spent ten years managing the New York Yankees, with all the expectation and attention that comes with managing in the city. The Mets have talent, and Girardi would likely grant them a credibility boost as well.
