The New York Yankees have missed the playoffs for the second time in manager Joe Girardi’s tenure with the club, but it appears the front office is willing to dismiss this season as the team dealt with a myriad of injuries. Girardis contract expires after this season, but if Brian Cashman has it his way the manager will remain in pinstripes moving forward.
Per SBnation, Cashman will meet with Girardi’s agent tomorrow to discuss a contract extension. The GM made it clear that the club wants Joe long-term when asked about it.
“We are going to give him a real good reason to stay,” Cashman told Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
With the retirement of Mariano Riveria and the advanced age of Derek Jeter, the Yankees appear to be in a period of transition moving forward. With Robinson Cano heading towards free agency, times could be rough in New York moving forward.
But, with the deep pockets the team has traditionally had we can assume they will do everything in their power to put a winning product out on the field eventually.
