Yankees' Cashman was concerned with Girardi's 'connectivity'

NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was concerned with Joe Girardi's "connectivity and communication level" with players in deciding to replace him as New York's manager.

Cashman said Monday he decided it was time for a "new voice" and a "fresh voice" in the job and said there may be a "shelf life" to a manager's tenure with a team.

New York announced last month that Girardi was being let go after 10 seasons.

Girardi managed the Florida Marlins in 2006 before coming to the Yankees in 2008. He led New York to the 2009 World Series title and three first-place finishes in the AL East.

Girardi was at the end of his four-year contract. The retooled Yankees went 91-71 this season, their best record since 2012, and reached the AL Championship Series before losing to Houston in seven games.
