A pair of Chicago teams are prepared to make the offseason difficult for the New York Yankees.
As the Cubs move on from the Dale Sveum era, they have set their sights on Yankees manager Joe Girardi. There have been talks about the Cubs targeting Girardi for years but with the manager’s contract up in New York now could be the time that they make a move.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the Cubs will outbid the Yankees for Girardi if necessary but thus far Girardi has not even informed the Yankees of a decision following a recent conversation about an extension.

If losing your manager was not bad enough, the Yankees could also have trouble re-signing outfielder Curtis Granderson.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the Chicago White Sox will make a big push to sign Curtis Granderson over the winter.
If Granderson’s price drops, the White Sox will make a move says the paper’s source. Thus far the market for the 32-year-old is unknown.
