Despite never publicly admitting anything, the Chicago Cubs have not hidden their desire to bring in New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

Girardi, who played for the Cubs during two different stints probably wouldn’t mind a reunion, though if he has any doubts, the Cubs are reportedly open to swaying him with the all mighty dollar sign.

Per ESPN:

Cubs are poised to give Yankees’ Joe Girardi an offer that could make him one of highest-paid managers in baseball. (via )

Unfortunately for the Cubs (and any other interested team, like the Washington Nationals), Girardi is under contract with the Yankees until the final day of October. That means any team who wants to speak to Girardi would need permission, permission that the Yankees are very unlikely to grant.

The Yankees themselves are reportedly working on a deal that they will present Girardi in the coming days, though, there’s been no indication as to years or money. Though, given it’s the Yankees, you can expect a very fair amount.

Assuming the Cubs ask for permission to speak with Girardi and are denied, they can make their offer to the Yankees skipper November 1st, assuming he has not re-signed with New York.
