Joe Girardi As soon as Lou Piniella announced his retirement earlier this year, Yankees manager Joe Girardi's name was brought up. And it will continue to be bandied about until the Cubs hire a new manager.

Girardi is in the final year of his contract with the Yankees and a Chicago native. He was a finalist for the job when Piniella was first hired four years ago. Today he talked about it with reporters, including George A. King III of the New York Post . Here's what he said:

“My focus is here, I have a responsibility to the organization and the guys in the clubhouse,’’ Girardi said. "As a player, when I was a free agent, I never worried about where I would be. As a manager I am never worried about where I am going to be. The one thing I can control is getting the players to play the best they can every day. I am very happy here, a great working relationship with everybody.’’

Girardi's in an enviable situation, he has the best team in baseball, an expiring contract and a suitor with deep pockets and a need for a big hire. Will Girardi leave the Yankees? I don't know, but I do know he'll be an even richer man come 2011.
