Hank: "Joe Will Be Back, That's The Bottom Line"

Posted by Mark McCray |

The Yankees appear likely to miss the postseason for the first time in more than a decade, but the club plans to retain Joe Girardi as manager for the 2009 season.

Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner confirmed on Monday that Girardi -- who is piloting the club in the first year of a three-year contract -- will return next year.

"Joe will be back," Steinbrenner told the Associated Press Monday at the club's Spring Training complex. "He's done everything he could. That's the bottom line."
