“He is obviously under contract,” Cashman said. “And we have an interest in clearly trying to keep him. We are going to give him a real good reason to stay and he has earned that through his six years. I think he likes it here.”

He won 493 games this season.  If that's not deserving of a big contract, I don't know what is.

After the job he did this year with a minor league line-up for two thirds of the season I agree and hope Girardi stays.

"In six seasons with the Yankees, Girardi has a 972-564 record..."  That just shows what a historic manager Girardi has been for the Yanks: by this count, he led them to an average season record of 162-94.
