After ten seasons, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi is out. 

General Manager Brian Cashman announced Thursday in a statement

I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organization," Everything this organization does is done with careful and thorough consideration, and we've decided to pursue alternatives for the managerial position.

ESPN says that Girardi just completed a four-year, $16 million contract.

The move may come as a surprise as Girardi lead a team that many considered to be too young and still in the rebuilding stages to game seven of the American League Championship Series. 

His final record as Yankees manager is 910-710 in 1620 games. He's sixth on the all-time wins list for Yankees' managers.

Girardi always had huge shoes to fill following the legendary Joe Torre. Girardi certainly delivered, making the playoffs six times. and leading the team to a World Series in 2009. He has also helped lay the foundation for years to come, as helped develop and reorganize the Yankee's farm system which brought up many of today's starters including Aaron Judge.

No replacement has been announced as of now. Who could be next? Rob Thompson? Tony Pena? Don Mattingly?
