Offer Girardi can't refuse?

07:24 AM ET 10.02 | Reading between the lines, Yankees fans have to appreciate that Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi chatted earlier this week. In a hour-long media briefing Tuesday, the general manager avoided predictions on whether the manager will be back or not. ... But Cashman did say this: "I think [Girardi] likes it here and we are going to give him a good reason to stay." Translated, that sounds like an offer Girardi can't refuse. Mike Scioscia, with his 10-year, $50 million contract, is currently the highest-paid manager. The Yankees aren't about to do a 10-year deal. However, my gut says they would be willing to bump Girardi from the $3 million he makes annually toward the $5 million Scioscia receives. A contract in the range of three years at $12 million to $16 million -- or maybe even a fourth year -- is plausible.

George no longer controls the purse strings. There may be some major changes in Yankee land regarding payroll.

The last few years George was alive, he wasn't with it. After '09 they signed 3 top guys

I remember them signing 3 top guys before 09 but not after. And if he was with it or not, he was still running the show.

A manager's salary does not count against the salary cap. Therefore, it is a non-issue.

He was not running the show - it was well documented that the sons were running the team when CC Sabathia, Teixeira and AJ Burnett were signed.

Who the manager is isn't the u settling problemThe problem Al along is cash man not being able to truly evaluate young talent and him not being able to evaluate FA pitching talent.Other than Cano , Robertson , who has been AS level kid to come up through the ranks in the last 15 years.And other than throwing insane $ to cc...What pitcher has cash brought in in the last 10 years that truly was a difference maker and has stuck around for more than a season or 2?Forget the manager.....cashman needs to go

I totally agree that the problem is the farm system. However, firing Cashman wont solve that problem. They need to figure out a way to overhaul the scouting department.

It's not easy building a farm system when your team is always at the high end of the game. There's a reason teams like Tampa, Pittsburgh, Baltimore and Washington are loaded with young talent. They sucked for so long. As for why the Cubs sucked and continue to suck, good question.

The devil kept showing up to drag The Boss straight down to hell and he was tired from fighting him off.
Oops, forgot The Boss WAS the devil!

Plenty of teams would love to have Joe, pay him big bucks, give him a long term contract, and not have the 24 hour a day circus that comes with the Yankee job.
