Cubs Willing To Top Yanees’ Offer For Girardi
CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs haven’t won a World Series title since 1908, so they’re content to wait as long as possible until Joe Girardi decides whether to accept an offer to stay with the Yankees or pursue other opportunities.
There’s plenty of guarded optimism because the Cubs have made it clear through channels that they are willing to top whatever offer the Yankees tender, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.
Girardi, who is completing a three-year contract that paid him about $3 million in 2013, could be in line for a new contract that is longer than three years and could be more than $5 million annually, the source added.
