TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Starting his 10th season as New York Yankees manager, Joe Girardi wants to lead the team beyond 2017 and watch the Baby Bombers mature.

Girardi is entering the final season of a $16 million, four-year contract. The Yankees won the 2009 World Series in his second season but have missed the postseason in three of the past four years and have not won a postseason game since the 2012 AL Division Series.

Speaking Tuesday as the Yankees reported for spring training, Girardi said “I don’t envision myself doing anything different. This is what I know. This is what I’ve done for a long time.”

Girardi doesn’t anticipate discussions about an extension with owner Hal Steinbrenner before the end of the season.

“It doesn’t really impact me,” Girardi said. “I’m going to go do my job the same way, the way that I believe is, for me, the right way. They have not extended managers as long as I can remember during the course of the season. So, I’ll just go do my job and whatever happens, happens.”
