The Kansas City Royals Tuesday gave manager Ned Yost a two year extension after the team finished 86-76 this season, the club's best record in 24 years.
And the New York Yankees reportedly plan to offer manager Joe Girardi, 48, another extension paying more than his current $3 million per year. The Yankees reportedly hope to lower their player payroll next season from the current $189 million to $177 million. Girardi could be a target of the Chicago Cubs if he does not re-sign with New York.
