Supposedly in the Quick Hits in the Tribune this morning, Girardi downplayed the possibility he'd manage the Cubs and seems more inclined to take a TV job if he didn't come back to New York.

I think Girardi is still highly regarded around the league and probably will be able to be picky with his next job. I could see him going the Terry Francona route, taking a year away from managing, doing some gigs on ESPN, and if something nice opens up in 2015, maybe he'll jump on that.

I just can't see him leaving the circus in the Bronx to join the circus on the North Side unless Theo can convince the Ricketts to open up the pocketbook.
