The New York Yankees honored their 1998 World Series team on Saturday, but there was one rather conspicuous absence to the festivities.

Joe Girardi, who was a backup catcher on the 1998 team and the manager from 2008-2017, was invited to the ceremony but declined the invitation, according to Steven Marcus of Newsday.

This will probably raise some eyebrows. Girardi was not brought back by the Yankees after making the ALCS last year, and the manager made it clear that the decision was out of his hands. While he has said he still roots for the players, it’s not inconceivable to think that he’s still unhappy about not being brought back by the front office.
