Yankees reportedly tap Boone as new manager

03 Декабря 2017

Of course, the former infielder is known best for his 11 inning home run in Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium (the old one) to send the Yankees to the World Series. Rob Thomson, who had been with the Yankees for almost three decades and most recently was Joe Girardi's bench coach, is expected to move to the Philadelphia Phillies to be Gabe Kapler's bench coach, sources said.

Speaking earlier Friday, Cashman said he had consulted with Rodriguez about the candidates but said the former Yankee was not one of them.

The New York Yankees became the final Major League Baseball team to fill a managerial vacancy by hiring Aaron Boone, according to multiple reports.

From 1997 - 2009 he played for six different teams.

That hire was first broken by The New York Daily News, and was later confirmed by ESPN.

Most MLB managers toil for years as bench coach, pitching coach, managing in the minors or other positions where they have to display leadership of players.

As manager of the Yankees, Boone will be under a microscope and very little will remain unknown about him starting today. He said Cashman contacted him about succeeding Girardi, whose contract was not renewed despite the Yankees' surprising surge to the ALCS.

In his conference call with the news media following his interview, Boone outlined his conversation with the Yankees, which he said centered around his stance and background in analytics and his communication style with players. "And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager". He tore a knee ligament in a pickup basketball game during the 2003-04 offseason and was released by the Yankees, who replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez.

Fortunately, Beltran's baseball mind could still be with the Yankees in some capacity next year.

Whatever their relationship with Girardi, those players helped the Yankees win the top AL wild card spot and make a deep playoff run, a rapid rise for a team that seemed to be in transition.

Also, when it appeared to come down to Hensley Meulens and Aaron Boone, I expected Meulens to be the Yankees' choice. Will Aaron Boone be able to take NY to the next step and bring home a 28th Commissioner's Trophy?

After his job interview, Boone said he grasped the demands.

Apparently, Boone was the guy who checked most of the boxes. "I know what I would be signing up for".

Both Boone and Meulens have Yankee backgrounds.
