10/4 Girardi update
According to ESPNNewYork.com, the Yankees have made Joe Girardi a new contract offer and are waiting for his decision. Girardi’s current three-year, $9 million contract runs through the end of October. A source told ESPNNewYork.com that Girardi may take the weekend to decide whether he’ll accept the offer. If Girardi says no to the Yankees, and the Cubs want to speak to him, they most likely would have to wait until Nov. 1. Theo Epstein has said he wants to have the new manager in place by the GM meetings, which are Nov. 11-13 in Orlando.
