According to a story via ESPN, the New York Yankees have decided to bring back manager Joe Girardi, even though the team missed the playoffs this season.
Joe Girardi has signed a four-year contract to return as the New York Yankees‘ manager, the team announced Wednesday.
Girardi, who turns 49 later this month, managed the Yankees to an 85-77 record this past season, his sixth with the team.
There were rumors that a few teams were interested in securing the services of Girardi, so the Yankees did well to put that speculation to rest early.

All across the field, the New York Yankees will have questions to answer. But now that the Yanks have re-signed manager Joe Girardi to four-year deal, the next big task for the Yankees will be to bring back their best player in Robinson Cano. In 2013, Cano was the Bombers’ best player, and they’ll need him back for next season.

New York Yankees inherited owner Hal Steinbrenner was on the Mike Francesa Show yesterday, and all I can say is he still doesn’t get it.

Hal acknowledged that the 2013 season was a disappointment.
He also admitted that the Yankees development within their farm system has not panned out as they were hoping.
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...
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:
Brian Cashman, general manager of the New York Yankees, met with his scouting department on Tuesday. This was the second day of a week long plan to discuss the team's off season plans. One part of the plan is to decrease the salary under the $189 million luxury-tax threshold.
Managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner insisted that this will be done in a way that will not...
So I see that Hal Steinbrenner made the media rounds yesterday, telling reporters and sports yakkers gems like "I think Brian [Cashman] did a great job" as general manager. (What high standards, eh? If Cashman did a great job this year, then I would hate to think what Hal considers a bad job?) I wonder what took Hal so long to finally speak out about the season. After all...
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...
Is Curtis Granderson on his way out of the Bronx?
Granderson just completed his fourth season with the New York Yankees and is a free agent this winter. The veteran outfielder has put up impressive numbers during his 10-year career -- playing the first six seasons with the Detroit Tigers.
In 2011, he led the majors with 136 runs and was second in homers with 41, while leading the...

Don’t worry Yankees fans, Joe Girardi won’t be leaving the Bronx in the offseason.
The veteran manager, who led New York to a World Series championship in 2009 and has reached the playoffs in four of his six seasons with the club, agreed to a four-year, $16 million deal on Wednesday to remain in pinstripes, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Girardi’s previous contract...
Yesterday, the billion dollar voice of Yankee owner Hal Steinbrenner appeared unto ESPN and WFAN radio, assuring his lost tribe that 2013 was an aberration, and that His Ownership will do what it takes to put the Bombers back on course next season.As Hal spoke, the Cardinals, Tigers, As and Rays - franchises that win year after year on far less than the Yankees spend - were still...
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 […]
In this morning's Daily News a famed sports reporter inserted a qualifier into his article about the Yankee's future, and approach to re-building a competitive team; the qualifier was in thevein of: " assuming that they take actions to get more productivity from their farm system..."Think about that for a moment.How do the Yankees suddenly get, "more productivity...
The New York Mets have been connected to both Robinson Cano and Jose Abreu, but don’t expect them to sign either of them. They may check in on both of them, but don’t expect either one of them to end up with the Mets.
While the Mets may like Jose Abreu and his power potential, you shouldn’t expect them to pursue him, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. The...
