Kepner: Girardi The Joker.

Tyler Kepner of the NY Times writes on his blog today about Joe Girardi. While illustrating a busy, punctual, determined skipper, Kepner also reveals a lighter side of the first year Yankees manager:
Girardi is regimented; he meets with the beat reporters in his office at Legends Field before the bus leaves for road games, leaving him more time to focus on the team once he gets to the ballpark.

But Girardi’s strict schedule belies a lighter side. The other day, I left my recorder in his office by mistake. He found me in the clubhouse and gave it back, but not before intoning into the machine, “Tyler is very irresponsible.” Not words you’d want on your tombstone, but funny just the same.
