Not with Joe Girardi, anyway. What you see is what you get.
Girardi is no Bobby Valentine -- and he doesn't want to be.
As far as entertainment, there is no comparison between the two. Valentine spent Monday waving goodbye to the ejected Ozzie Guillen. Girardi was his usual, intentionally bland self.
When talking about the Yankees' exhibition tonight, Valentine sarcastically said, "I won't be able to sleep. This will be a big one. We want to set the tone [Tuesday.] We really want to let them know who we are. Send a message.”
Girardi doesn't believe in sending messages -- sarcastic or otherwise -- through the media. He approaches his job more as just, well, a job, like anyone else's.
