Joe Girardi likely can get more years and money to manage the Cubs but that would mean his future would be dancing in the wind at least until Nov. 1 because his Yankees managerial contract doesn’t end until Oct. 31.
After the final game of a disappointing season Girardi said he wanted to resolve his situation with the Yankees quickly.
Last week the Yankees presented Girardi’s agent Steve Mandell with a three-year deal believed to be north of $12 million. Including bonuses Girardi could earn as much as $15 million.
Girardi was said to be mulling the offer during the weekend and polling family members — his three children and his wife Kim.
Multiple Yankees sources said Sunday there were no new developments.
When general manager Brian Cashman conducts his pro scouting meetings Monday there is a chance Girardi will have accepted the offer.
Through channels Girardi has to know the Cubs likely would be willing to make a longer offer than the Yankees’ and Chicago might touch $5 milli...
BEST OF MAXIM
When Brian Cashman had his end-of-season press conference last week at Yankee Stadium, he said the Yankees would give Joe Girardi a “Real good reason to stay.” This past Friday, the organization made an offer to the soon-to-be 43-year-old manager, and are now waiting for a decision.
While the parameters of the deal are unknown, the offer is believed to be between $4 million-...
Even before the official termination of Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum, speculation began about the possibility of signing Joe Girardi to manage the Cubs. Our own Robert Murray recently explained the Cubs' serious interest in bringing Girardi to Wrigley Field. Now, we know a little more of just how serious Cubs team president Theo Epstein may be.

New York Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner took to the radio today to discuss the issues surrounding team, mentioning he was “disappointed” by the Yankees’ performance this season, but reiterated several times that the Yankees are not going to break the bank this offseason to make it back to the playoffs in 2014.
“It’s important, and it’s certainly a goal we take...
You are not the only one who has seen Robinson Cano jog to first base exerting a tepid effort that harms his reputation and perhaps his earning power?
Joe Girardi and his coaches reveal scores of appeals to Cano about how bad the visual looks — both to the fans and to impressionable younger Yankees — and that it is quite frankly not the way any major leaguer should play.
Hank Steinbrenner wants Joe Girardi to remain with the New York Yankees and is awaiting the manager's decision on a new contract.
Girardi's current deal expires at the end of the month, and the team offered a new agreement last week.
''It's up to him now,'' Steinbrenner, the team's co-chairman, said Tuesday.
The Yankees failed to make the playoffs...

A pair of Chicago teams are prepared to make the offseason difficult for the New York Yankees.
As the Cubs move on from the Dale Sveum era, they have set their sights on Yankees manager Joe Girardi. There have been talks about the Cubs targeting Girardi for years but with the manager’s contract up in New York now could be the time...
This post was supposed to be about Joe Girardi's new contract with the Yankees. I thought I would be writing about the new deal and speculating about what he would do during the life of it. I also thought I would be writing about it sooner than today. We were all given the impression that the negotiation would be quick and painless and that Girardi would, by now, be preparing...
The Yankees began their offseason by focusing on re-signing manager Joe Girardi as quickly as possible and preventing him from hitting the open market. As Hal Steinbrenner made clear on Tuesday the team will take a very different approach with Robinson Cano.
“It sounds like he wants to go out and test the market and talk to whoever he needs or wants to talk to" the Yankees...
We've talked a lot over the past few days about Joe Girardi's contract situation as he decides his future with the Yankees, but who would replace him if he decided he wanted to leave the Yankees?
ESPN recently put out a list answering just that question. There are some surprises on the list, as well as some household names:
Girardi is set to become one of the highest paid managers in baseball should he accept the offer.
The New York Yankees' "generous offer" to Manager Joe Girardi is reportedly a three year deal worth between $12-15 million according to the Star-Ledger.
The low end of that would still represent a 33 percent increase in salary for Girardi who made $3 million in 2013....
I was reading the solidly-above-replacement-level Yankees blog rlyw.net this morning, and I came across a very interesting table. It listed the Runs Created at 2B for each team this year. I won't reproduce the whole list (seriously, check out that blog, it's interesting), but I share one thing:
NYY: 123 RC
CHC: 45 RC
That's a difference of 78 RUNS. It's really hard...
Alex Rodriguez’s appeal hearing against Major League Baseball is set to resume on Wednesday Oct. 16 according to multiple industry sources.
The hearing will last through the end of next week and is then expected to adjourn again until after the World Series.
The first week of the hearing was dominated by the testimony of MLB star witness Anthony Bosch the founder of the now-closed...
We’re sure you didn’t miss it a few weeks ago, but after Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte went to the mound and removed their (now) former teammate, Mariano Rivera, from the Yankees Stadium mound for the last time—choking us up more than we have in awhile—we started thinking about how cool it must have been […]
Despite the absence of the New York Yankees, the 2013 MLB Division Series has held up well on TBS. Coverage of the MLB Division Series on TBS averaged a 2.3 U.S. rating and 3.5 million […]
