From Jon Heyman -
The Yankees appear to be focusing on Joe Girardi to replace legendary Joe Torre as manager. Barring an unforeseen development, Girardi could receive the offer Monday.
Indications are strong that Girardi is the first choice of general manager Brian Cashman, who has been weighing a difficult call for days. Negotiations are expected to go quickly, with the Yankees expected to give Girardi a three-year contract for about $6 million to take one of the most high-profile jobs in sports. An announcement could come as early as Tuesday.
If this turns out to be one of those “Dewey Defeats Truman” things, I think I may scream until my throat hurts.
