The Yankees are still looking for a new manager and the Sports Pope believes he’s qualified.

On his Monday show, WFAN host Mike Francesa said he feels he has what it takes to be the manager of the Yankees after being asked if he’d ever take the job if offered.

“Do I think I can manage the Yankees? Sure, but I’m not gonna get a chance to manage the Yankees,” Francesa said to a caller in audio captured by Twitter user Funhouse.

The caller tried to make the argument that if Donald Trump can be President, Francesa can be the Yankees manager.

“I definitely could, but the point is they’re not going to hire me to do that because they’re going to hire someone who either spent 20 years playing the game or spent that time as a coach or a manager and I understand that,” Francesa said. “Just like they’re not gonna give someone my radio show who doesn’t have any experience at least behind a microphone.”…

The Yankee’s will be in the Playoff’s….Again….

I’m a Mets fan….

So I suffer quietly….

It’s been that way more or less since the team was born…

Except for a few years I’ve had to watch the Yankee’s rule the baseball life in New York….

All the ‘cool’ guys…and women wear Yankee hats….

All the media talks about in Derrick Jetter…

Mario Rivera keep striking people out into his 40’s….

and the Mets?

Well….

They’re just the losing Mets…

Ok….

Jorge Posada’s two-run single in the bottom of the eighth inning put the Yankees up for good.

…….with the Red Sox in the throes of a collapse, the Yankees were not only able to win the division, but they also did it with ease, brushing aside all competitors with a week remaining in the regular season.

It all concluded at the tail end of a long but happy day Wednesday as the Yankees swept the Tampa Bay Rays by the scores of 4-2 in a daynight doubleheader at Yankee Stadium. Those wins, combined with the Red Sox’ 6-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Boston, gave the Yankees their 12th division crown since the team’s remarkable run of success began in 1996.

“It’s not often that we’re considered the underdogs, but I understood it with the moves that they had made,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said, and then added, “But this is a special group. This is a group that knows how to win.”

It appears the Red Sox did not share in that knowledge.

As the Yankees and the Rays moved into the bottom of the seventh inning of the nightcap, the giant video screen in center field flashed the score in Boston, to the delight of the 45,586 fans at Yankee Stadium.

In the last week, Red Sox fans have had a far different outlook toward the Yankees, who are in the unusual position of keeping Boston’s playoff hopes alive. The Red Sox have lost 16 out of 21 games, but they picked up a half-game in the wild-card standings over the Rays and now lead Tampa Bay and the Los Angeles Angels by two and a half games.

In the last three games, the Yankees have done for Boston what Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford — their marquee off-season acquisitions — could not do in the four-game series at Fenway Park last week, when the Rays won three out of four.

The Yankees clobbered the Rays when it counted…..
