ESPN: Girardi offered job

The Yankees officially offered their managerial job to Joe Girardi on Monday morning and he is expected to accept it, a source has told 1050 ESPN New York's Andrew Marchand.

"The Yankees have offered Joe the opportunity to become their next manager. Discussions are ongoing." Steve Mandell, Girardi's agent, said. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told Don Mattingly and Tony Pena that they will not be getting the job. (ESPN)

I mentioned this in my previous post, but I felt it should be its own post.

In the same article, ESPN says that Don Mattingly will not accept a job on the coaching staff.

This is the absolute right move, and I am happy the Yankees weren't influenced by Mattingly's mythical status. The Yankees are headed down a younger path, and Girardi is the perfect manager for this team at this time. The report is that the contract is around three years for $6 million.

If what Pete is saying is true, I'll keep Scott Proctor in my prayers.
