Hal Steinbrenner took a few questions from reporters after this morning’s press conference announcing the new college football bowl game that will be played at Yankee Stadium. When Steinbrenner was asked if there was any kind of ultimatum on Joe Girardi and how the team does in the postseason, he said, “No. Joe has had a tremendous year this year. We all know that. He’s got the best record in baseball. As far as I’m concerned and the family’s concerned and the organization’s concerned, he’s the man for the job.”

When asked if there was any thought to a contract extension for Girardi, Steinbrenner said, “Not even thinking about that right now. Just trying to focus on the playoffs, as I should be and everyone should be. There will be plenty of drama in the playoffs, I assure you.”

Steinbrenner also said he expects his father to make a rare appearance in the Bronx during the postseason. “That’s the plan,” he said, “particularly if and when, I should say, we make it to the World Series. He’ll absolutely be here.”
