There won't be any drawn-out negotiations in New York, as the Yankees are set to complete a contract extension with Joe Girardi.
The new deal, as the New York Post reports, will pay Girardi between $9 and $10 million over the next three seasons, which may be enough to vault him into the top five most-paid managers in the game.
The deal could be finalized Wednesday or Thursday, and put Girardi on the road towards six seasons as skipper. That would make him the sixth Yankees manager to serve six or more consecutive seasons as manager, behind Joe Torre (12), Buck Showalter (4), Ralph Houk (7, 10 total), Casey Stengel (12), Joe McCarthy (15-plus) and Miller Huggins (11-plus).
