Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent IAugust 29, 2010

Prior to the opening stanza of a three-game series with the Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi addressed recent speculation surrounding his interest in the Chicago Cubs’ managerial position.

Girardi, a native of East Peoria, Illinois, is in the final year of a three-year, $7.5 million contract with New York and has already become the fourth most successful manager, behind Ralph Houk, Billy Martin and Clark Griffith, among the 17 former Yankees players who have been elevated to the position.

So while Girardi is attempting to lead the Bronx Bombers to a second consecutive World Series Championship, the Chicago Cubs are contemplating how to fill the void left by Lou Piniella, who retired on August 22 to care for his ailing mother.
