New York Yankees Decide on Aaron Boone as Manager

New York Yankees Decide on Aaron Boone as Manager

One thing Boone does seem to have in spades is the personality to both deal with a relatively young Yankees team and thrive in the spotlight of the NY media. Boone has not been in uniform since retiring as a player eight years ago, but his hiring continues a trend around the majors.

Aaron Boone said on November 17 that he believes that time with the Yankees could help him prepare for this job, which certainly comes with its share of expectations.

"I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 and 4 years old, and in a way managing the game from a very young age".

Based on sourced information from how all the interviews went down, it appears Boone, Meulens and Beltran all made the strongest impressions on Cashman and his team of close advisers that included VP of Baseball Operations Tim Naehring, assistant GM Mike Fishman and Senior VP Jean Afterman who were part of the process. And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager. He grew up in a baseball family.

Boone, 44, is best known for his Game 7-winning home run in the 2003 American League Championship Series that extended the Boston Red Sox's curse and sent the Yankees to the World Series. Hopefully, Aaron will have more managerial success than his father, as Bob never led a team to an above-.500 record in six seasons.

Earlier this month, Alex Rodriguez already stated that he wasn't interested in managing the New York Yankees, the former team he played for, comparing the position to being the president of the United States. It was a bit of a surprise but he was Brian Cashman's choice.

Fortunately, Beltran's baseball mind could still be with the Yankees in some capacity next year. Boone, who is nearly nine years younger than Girardi, will perhaps forge stronger bonds with a young core that includes right fielder Aaron Judge, catcher Gary Sanchez, first baseman Greg Bird and pitchers Luis Severino and Dellin Betances. And for the Yankees sake, he's the next manager to bring a championship back to NY.

The decision ultimately came down to Boone and San Francisco Giants bench coach Hensley "Bam Bam" Meulens.

"I understand what it is to be a Yankee", he said. "I know what I'd be signing up for".

Thomson, who had spent 28 seasons in the Yankees' organization, most recently as the bench coach, is finalizing a deal to fill that role for the Philadelphia Phillies.
