Brian Cashman to meet with Girardi's agent

Joe Girardi's contract is up, but the Yankees have any intention of bringing their manager back in 2011.

Cashman said he would be meeting with Girardi’s agent, Steve Mandell, Tuesday morning.

“Obviously the first order of business is our manager,” Cashman said. “That should work out fine. I know Joe wants to stay and we’d like to retain him so that should create an environment we can work through rather quickly. And then after that, obviously, we’ll focus on the entire coaching staff, but especially that [pitching coach] vacancy.”

Girardi, who according to Cashman was on board with the decision not to retain pitching coach Dave Eiland, sounded optimistic about getting a new deal.

“I said after we lost on Friday, I love being here, I love working here,” Girardi said. “It’s a great work environment. Have a great relationship with the front office and everyone involved. So I want to be back. I hope it gets done quickly.”
