Girardi Coming Back 10/9/13
NEW YORK - The New York Yankees are bringing back manager Joe Girardi. The 48-year-old has signed a four-year contract extension to stay with the club. There had been speculation he might leave the Yankees and possibly take over the Chicago Cubs. The new deal means he is signed through 2017.
Girardi has led the team to the playoffs in four of his six seasons, winning the World Series in 2009. Under Girardi, the Yankees have gone a majors-best 564-408 since 2008.
