Cashman: Yankees want Girardi back

NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says the team wants Joe Girardi back as manager.

Hired after the 2007 season, Girardi's contract expires at the end of October. Crippled by injuries, New York had its poorest record since 1992 and finished tied for third in the AL East at 85-77.

Speaking two days after the season ended, Cashman said Tuesday that "he knows we'd like to have him stay and continue as manager of the New York Yankees as we move forward."

Cashman says he thinks Girardi "likes it here," and the GM will meet Wednesday with the manager's agent. Cashman wouldn't say if he would give the Chicago Cubs permission to speak with Girardi about their managerial opening.
