New Phillies Manager Joe Girardi called into the Mike Missanelli Show for about 20 minutes on Wednesday afternoon October 30th.

Joe mentions the Philly restaurants he’s visited so far, “offers” Mike a position as “Senior Adviser”, stepping down from managing TEAM USA so he could take the Phillies job, coaching today’s players, having fun in the clubhouse and the serious business of managing the game.

Mike gets Joe to talk about how he balances out analytics with “gut” and teaching players the balance of controlling their emotions and and making stronger efforts.

…and will there be a Phillies facial hair policy?

You’ll have to listen!
