Baseball Notes | Girardi in line for Dodgers job?

Baseball Notable

Joe Girardi might be headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers, a report on ESPN.com said yesterday.

A broadcaster with the Yankees, Girardi is one of the candidates to succeed Joe Torre in New York.

The agent for Girardi, Steve Mandel, was asked whether Girardi had been approached by the Dodgers, and Mandel would not comment.

Dodgers manager Grady Little is under contract for next season after the team picked up his option for 2008 on March 7. Little also has a club option for 2009.

Hank Steinbrenner, a son of Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, said New York would decide on a manager by the end of the World Series.
