Aaron Bleeping Boone is the man for the Yankees

Yankees complete interviews for next manager A Rod not among choices

The New York Yankees have selected former star player Aaron Boone to replace Joe Girardi as manager, United States media reported on Friday. He tore a knee ligament during a pickup basketball game in the offseason after his home run off Boston's Tim Wakefield and was released by NY, which replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez. Thomson, who had been in the Yankees' organization for 28 seasons, plans to accept a bench coach position with the Phillies, while Beltran has said that he is looking forward to spending time at home with his family.

With reigning AL home run king Aaron Judge, power-hitting catcher Gary Sanchez, ace Luis Severino, a top-notch bullpen and ascendant young infielder Gleyber Torres all at his disposal, Boone should have the resources necessary to morph the Yankees into a perennial powerhouse once he gets acclimated to life on the bench.

The New York Yankees have apparently decided that the right fit is more important when it comes to their managerial vacancy.

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.

"Obviously, experience is very valuable and should be a check mark for somebody", Boone said. Bob Boone spent seven of his 19 seasons with the Angels from 1982-88.

Yet here they are with Aaron Boone and Mickey Callway, two fresh-faced skippers with no managerial experience. "That's part of the game and Major League sports. And then growing up where my dad was in the big leagues from the time I was born to the time I was in a senior in high school and being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game as a kid", he said. There's pressure that goes along with that. Bill Madden of the New York Daily News was the first to report the hiring of Boone, a former Yankees third baseman who will become the 35th manager in club history. And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager.

Still, the chances of the Yankees offering A-Rod their open manager job would be slim, considering the franchise's general manager, Brian Cashman, actually sought out the 42-year-old's advice about the vacant position, but not to see if the former slugger wanted the job, according to Newsday. "I looked for a lot of guidance from a lot of people that I have respect for, and Alex knows baseball as well as anybody".

Cashman added: "He never expressed interest in any way, shape or form". Beltran has only been retired a few weeks but I think not being out of the game too long would have benefitted him and the Yankees.
