NY Post: Girardi Likely To Ink 3-Year Deal With Yankees

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Joe Girardi will likely sign a 3-year contract extension with the Yankees, according to George King III and Mark Hale of the NY Post.

From the Post:

“There is no chance the Yankees and Joe Girardi announce a contract extension today when the manager and Brian Cashman will talk at Yankee Stadium.

“Eventually, a deal will be struck. Hal Steinbrenner and Cashman think highly of Girardi, who likely will sign a three-year deal.”

Girardi’s initial $7.8 million, three-year contract as Joe Torre’s successor is expiring. According to GM Brian Cashman, there’s little doubt he will return.

“I would think that would be our first order of business,” general manager Brian Cashman said. “But I haven’t talked to our owners yet.”

The Yankees also have to deal with contract negotiations for Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and perhaps Andy Pettitte, plus their likely attempt to woo Cliff Lee and possibly Carl Crawford.

    It took the Three Stooges thinking to undermine the Yankees. Andy Pettitte should have pitched game two. Andy’s performance was wasted against Lee. Game 6 may have been played Yankees up3-2 instead of visa-versa. The Three Stooges, Girardi, Cashman, and Hal Steinbrenner couldn’t of had worse results.

      Excellent points, Girardi undermined Yanks chances by moving up Petite to game 3, allowing Hughes to pitch two critical games to Petite’s one, by using a dud named robertson instead of stud named joba chamberlain, by managing an entire series around one game (game 3) and by walking a batter to get to Molina and keeping Burnett in game 4. ALL THE WRONG MOVES BY JOE!
