Joe Girardi explains why, after turning his back on the chance to manage the Washington Nationals earlier this year in order to spend more time with his family, he now is seeking the same position with the Baltimore Orioles:
I’ve enjoyed my time with my family, with my kids and my wife. I’ve gone to my son’s Little League [games] and been able to see my daughter crawl for the first time. Those are days you don’t get back. But I’ve made it known I want to manage again. I’ve been fortunate to see the things I’ve seen, but I want the challenge of managing again.
