If the Yankees steadfastly intend on taking this thing right up to the end of October, how long can the Cubs wait?

As the Cubs wait on Girardi, they’re getting the ball rolling on other fronts.
Anonymous executives say the Cubs are a likely candidate to land Price if he’s shopped.
He’s been mulling a reported offer from the Yankees for a few days now. The Cubs hope to have a chance to top it.
The third base prospect is still looking for a permanent solution.
Friday saw a whole lot of legal action around baseball. And the amusement tax on Cubs tickets could be going up.
So he said in a video from 2002, anyway.
Bruce Levine just said it was a possibility.
It could be a take-it-or-leave-it situation.
The Texas Rangers pitching coach was a finalist for the Cubs’ open managerial gig back in 2011.
The coaches are free to explore other options during this transition period, though some may wait the managerial search out before committing anywhere.

Perfect timing, right?
In terms of “Yankees or someone else,” at least.
The 28-year-old utility man is a former top prospect who missed almost all of the last two seasons with two ACL injuries.
He’ll be a coach for the 2014 Royals.
The Cubs won’t owe compensation for the wall bump outs, will get the night game ordinance fixed, and will get street fairs.
Is it Girardi or bust for the Cubs? How likely is that to result in a “bust”? Plus more emails than you can shake a stick at.
It’s still hard to know for sure whether the Cubs will even get a shot at Girardi. There are some conflicting reports.
A competitive season and a Wild Card bow-out. Good enough for 2014?
If Girardi is indeed engaging in a back-and-forth with the Yankees already, the odds he listens to other teams are low.
Cubs ownership may be particularly interested in Girardi, though the Cubs have reportedly already spoken to the Padres about Hinch.
The Cubs may not get permission to speak to Girardi until and unless negotiations with the Yankees break down.
That would be something of a surprise given the existence of Welington Castillo, right?
The atmosphere was ridiculous in Pittsburgh, and the team came through.
