Girardi said isn't concerned whatsoever with his lame-duck status as he heads into the final year of his contract:
"My faith is that God is going to put me where he wants me. That's what I believe. I don't worry about where I'm going to be next year. We're probably going to get into this later, so I'll say it, we talk about payroll - I'm not worried about next year's payroll. I'm worried about the next 162 games and getting to the playoffs and getting to the World Series. That's my concern. That's what I worry about. I think in the game of baseball you get a lot of practice only worrying about that day or that year as a player, as a coach, as a manager, because you never know what it's going to be. When I signed, I was called up in 1989 and thought I'd be a Cub the rest of my life. Lo and behold, I was with three other teams, back with the Cubs. I was all over the place. So you get used to not worrying about next year, and I'm not worried about it."
