The New York Yankees aren't about to let the Cubs hire away their manager, according to a report.
The New York Daily News is reporting that the Bronx Bombers would refuse to let the Cubs speak to Girardi, who is under contract as the Yankees' manager until the end of October, about the Cubs' open managerial job. The Cubs would need permission from the Yankees to talk to Girardi, who is reportedly the top candidate for the position.
The Yankees would refuse the Cubs as they are attempting to work out their own deal to keep Girardi on as manager, according to the report, and a contract offer from the Yankees could last three years and be worth between $12 million and $15 million.
Here's the New York Daily News' sports front from Thursday:
An additional report from CBS Sports indicates the Yankees have already made their offer and that the team and Girardi's agent will meet again Thursday.
And, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Thursday that the Cubs' planned offer to Girardi would make him one of the two highest-paid managers in baseball.
