Girardi announcement coming today

Word from Tampa is the Yankees will conduct a conference call today to officially name Joe Girardi as manager. The contracts of the assistant coaches expire tomorrow and that has to be dealt with immediately as they want to negotiate with Kevin Long and Tony Pena before they get on the market.

Long should get himself a nice package as the Yankees know Joe Torre would hire him for the Dodgers. Long resides in Arizona, so working for Los Angeles would have an appeal.

I’ll try and post the audio from the call once it is finished. No time has been set yet.
