Joe Girardi has a new job. He’ll be in the booth this time.

WFAN says that Girardi will join Marquee Sports and be on the call for this weekend’s games between the Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers.

In June, the Philadelphia Phillies decided to part ways with manager Joe Girardi because the team’s record was 22-29, they had dropped seven of their previous nine games, and they were in third place in the National League East, 12 games behind the New York Mets and 512 games out of the second spot in the NL wild-card race.

On Thursday, the Philadelphia Phillies, who are now managed by Girardi’s former bench coach Rob Thomson and have a record of 65-52, were in third place, 10.5 games behind the New York Mets. They are currently in second place in the race for the Wild Card spot in the National League.

When Girardi joined the Phillies, he brought with him a proven track record of success. He managed the New York Yankees from 2008 until 2017, during which time the team won three division titles and the World Series in 2009.

After losing to the Houston Astros in seven games in the 2017 American League Championship Series, the Yankees fired Girardi. The Astros went on to win the World Series, but later it was found that Houston stole signs by using electronic equipment.
