Joe Girardi has agreed to stay with the New York Yankees for at least four more years for $16 million.

Manager Joe Girardi has re-signed with the New York Yankees for four years and $16 million.

According to Jay Schreiber of the New York Times, financial terms were not actually disclosed. The $16 million figure was gathered from an MLB source "with knowledge of the contract." 

A CBS report dated Oct. 9 confirms the deal also includes bonuses. 

Girardi's new contract ends rampant speculation he might end up as manager of the Chicago Cubs, with whom he began his MLB career with as a player. He is a native of Peoria, Ill. who played college ball at Northwestern.

He also thought about taking a year or two off to be a baseball analyst, but that has been put on the shelf for now. 

Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York points out the new deal makes Girardi the second-highest paid manager in Major League Baseball. 

Once he has served the entire length of the extension, he will become one of the longest-tenured skippers in New York Yankees history, a tenure exceeded only by the likes of Joe McCarthy, Casey Stengel, Miller Huggins and Joe Torre

Wallace also adds all four of these previous Yankees managers are in the Hall of Fame and are responsible for 22 of the team's 27 World Series pennants. 

For his part, Girardi said a rich Yankees tradition and his passion for his job were what ultimately made him decide to stay.

"After talking with my family, we decided that this was where we wanted to come back. It's a special place to manage because of the opportunity that you have every year and the tools that they give you.

"The history of this organization is unbelievable. There are special things that happen here every year.

"We talked (about) the possibility about a lot of things basically that I could possibly do if I decided not to manage. We brought up everything, and we did it as a group. 

"My kids love coming to the ballpark. Sometimes you feel like you're missing things that they're doing, but they love the tradeoff, and that allows me to do what I love to do, and that's to manage."

Girardi also emphasized he wouldn't come back if the Yankees had no shot at winning another championship.

"I wouldn't have come back if I didn't think we could win a championship. I have faith in our organization. I want to be part of us getting back on top.

"I don't just manage to work. I manage to win championships."

In spite of the Yankees missing this year's postseason with an 85-77 mark, they still own the league's best record since 2008 -- Girardi's debut season as manager -- with a 564-408 (.580) record.

NLCS Game 2: Managers make moves, but home runs predominate

Oct 12 2014 11:19pm CDT | Source: SBNation

A classic game sees plenty of managerial moves and a series of wild reverses, but in the end the home run solved all arguments about who was best -- at least for one night. The greatest temptation every manager needs to face and defeat in the postseason is the need to impose himself on the action. The roster of 30 managers will always compose a spectrum of "activist" to "inert" in te ...

Yankees GM says Alex Rodriguez could play 1B in 2015

Oct 11 2014 2:54pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The New York Yankees infield was already going to look quite different in 2015 than it had in years past, with the retirement of Derek Jeter. But the return of another, less beloved superstar in Alex Rodriguez doesn't bring any more clarity to the situation. In fact, the team is considering Rodriguez as a candidate to play first base next year. "I don’t think it’s safe to assume that he can play third base. With his age and missing a full year, you have ...

Jeter exits MLB with win as Yanks top Red Sox

Sep 28 2014 4:26pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

BOSTON — The ball, marked and numbered for the occasion, bounced high off the dirt and down the third-base line, where a rookie who was 4 years-old when Derek Jeter made his major league debut leaped into the air to attempt a barehanded play. It went off of his palm and onto the grass, and by that time Jeter was safe at first with hit No. 3,465 — the last of a career in which he established himself as the New York Yankees’ consummate captain and, for two decades, the face of baseba ...
