New York Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner expressed a sense of urgency Tuesday in resolving the status of manager Joe Girardi who is receiving interest from the Chicago Cubs. "I think both sides understand and I think Joe understands and believes we need to get this done sooner rather than later because of (the Yankees' upcoming organizational meetings) and my guess is that it's going to be done one way or the other relatively shortly'' Steinbrenner said on the Michael Kay Show on radio station ESPN-FM 98.7 in New York. "He knows we want him back. He knows my family is proud of him for the job he did this year - adversity and all that. We'll just have to see. ''But there are other factors involved and other obstacles to be surmounted. We'll do the best we can to keep him here.'' Steinbrenner intimated that Girardi who made an estimated $3 million in the final year of a three-year $9 million contract has received a fair offer. "I don't think anybody is a must-sign and I would say that about any employee at any level any upper management'' Steinbrenner said. ''We look at salaries around the league and we look at the fact this is New York and it's a high stress-type environment and we made him what we thought was a very good offer and he's got things to consider and a family to talk to. I know he's doing that right now. ''But this will go down sooner rather than later.''
