MLB Injury News:
Joe Girardi has easily been the most coveted manager this offseason. He has drawn interest from the Chicago Cubs, Washington Nationals and the New York Yankees. Girardi is under contract with the Yankees until October 31 and the Yankees aren't likely going to let anyone talk to him.
The Chicago Cubs have shown serious interest in Girardi, but they may not even get a chance to talk to him. The Yankees are very interested in keeping Joe Girardi and they don't have any intention for him to leave.
The New York Yankees have made a "very generous" offer to Joe Girardi, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. The deal is expected to be for between $4-5 million per season, but the amount of years on the offer is unknown.
A source called the Yankees' offer to Girardi "very generous" and said it would make him the 2nd-highest paid manager behind only Scioscia.

Feinsand says that the Yankees will not be letting any team talk to Girardi while they are in talks about a new deal. If talks start to fade or end without a deal, the Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals will be waiting for a chance to talk to him.
The Chicago Cubs were thought to be the only other team interested in Girardi, but the Nationals asked the Yankees for permission to speak with him, MLB Injury News' own Blaine Blontz writes.
When this is all said and done, Joe Girardi is expected to be among the highest paid managers in the game of baseball. As of now, it sounds likely that he remains with the Yankees, but nothing is done until the pen hits the paper.
