What would that be like?
You're Rick Renteria.
Going to New York for the first time as a real Big League manager.
And across the diamond is this other guy, Joe Girardi.
The guy everybody in Chicago wanted, back when Dale Sveum got the ax.
I'd love to hear their brief "hello" when they come out with the lineup cards.
Even better to hear their thoughts.
Like, Girardi might think, "Poor guy."
While Renteria might think, "Douchebag. I'm gonna kick your ass."
Which is what I hope happens.
Big double header today.
Wood and Hammel on the same day.
