So, How Much Chess Does Joe Girardi Actually PLAY?

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on October 11, 2009

This blog post advertises Joe Girardi as “one of the smartest managers in baseball,” and points us to this interview, in which Girardi discusses the similarities and differences between chess and baseball. We even see Girardi play a couple of games.

I am sure that Girardi is a smart guy, and I would be interested in playing a game of chess with him, but I am really not sure he plays all that much. If he did, he probably would have played more speed chess than he has, thus allowing him to know that a five-minute speed chess game does not mean that a player gets five minutes per move.
