Cubs Interested In Girardi

Yankees_Joe_Girardi_2013Brian Cashman’s meeting with Joe Girardi’s agent Wednesday comes at a time when the Chicago Cubs have serious interest in hiring the New York Yankees manager, sources told ESPN.

Chicago fired Dale Sveum on Monday, and sources say that Cubs ownership views Girardi as someone who can help put a jolt into fan interest in the team.

The Cubs’ attendance has declined in each of the past five seasons, at a time when the organization is trying to rebuild and probably is at least two or three years away from contending again.
