NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Yankees want Joe Girardi back — so they’d better work quickly. New York will have less than a month to hammer out a deal before the Chicago Cubs can make their move.
The Yankees “aren’t willing” to grant the Cubs permission to speak with Girardi while the sides try to negotiate a new deal, according to the New York Daily News. But that window will close at the end of October, when Girardi’s three-year deal with the Yankees officially expires.
Meanwhile, Chicago appears ready to pounce.
