      A baseball official familiar with the negotiations says Joe
Girardi and the New York Yankees have agreed on the outline of a $9
million, three-year contract.
      Although the agreement is not complete, the sides “are dotting
the 'i's and crossing the t's,' the person said Thursday, speaking
on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.
      The person says the deal is “going to get done.”
      The New York Post first reported the news.
      Girardi would be able to earn about $500,000 more each year in
bonuses based on the team's performance.
      He is finishing a $7.8 million, three-year contract that he
signed as Joe Torre's successor following the 2007 season.
      Girardi managed the Yankees to the 2009 World Series title. New
York lost to Texas in this year's ALCS.
