Source: Yanks willing to wait on Girardi
By Andrew Marchand
With no word on whether Joe Girardi will accept their lucrative contract offer, the New York Yankees are prepared to give Girardi as much time as he needs to decide, even if it means waiting until the end of the month when his current deal runs out, an official with knowledge of the team's thinking told ESPN New York on Monday.
On the final day of the season, Girardi said he would like a quick resolution on his future. Girardi, who received the offer from the Yankees on Friday, has drawn interest from the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Nationals. Girardi grew up near Chicago and played for the Cubs.
