If our own Jim Bowden is correct, Joe Girardi isn't going anywhere.

Bowden goes over all the possible moves for Giardi and ultimately decides Girardi will choose to stay in the Bronx -- because of his family.

While a fierce competitor, Girardi is not motivated primarily by winning. Again, his family’s comfort is paramount, and they are genuinely happy in New York. The weight of this factor cannot be overstated. Ultimately, returning to the Yankees seems like the best overall fit for Girardi.
