Via Jon Heyman:
The Yankees plan to bring back manager Joe Girardi at a raise, no matter what some fans may say about his reliance on his ever-present binder.
This is when we wait for the Yankees beat reporters to see if Girardi has been told the team plans to bring him back.
My guess is he’ll say the team hasn’t told him anything, but I still do believe Heyman’s report. The Cubs already picked Mike Quade as next year’s manager, which is where some thought Girardi might land. The Dodgers are committed to Don Mattingly, who I thought may take over for Girardi. There aren’t many other options.
I’ll keep you posted if anything gets confirmed or denied.
