Villa Park product Aaron Boone to be named next manager of Yankees

J.Lo Tried To Shoot Her Shot To Get A-Rod The Yankees' Manager Job With This IG Post

Aaron Boone will be named the next manager of the New York Yankees, sources confirmed to ESPN's Buster Olney.

Boone was one of six people who interviewed for the job along with former Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran, former bench coach Rob Thomson-who is now the new bench coach for the Philadelphia Phillies, according to MLB.com's Todd Zolecki-San Francisco Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens, former Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge and Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward. His walk-off, 11th inning home run to win Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS was one of the more memorable playoff moments of this century, especially since it prolonged the then-current agony of the Boston Red Sox in the process.

Cashman said that while there was no ideal candidate, "We're looking for someone like we had before: someone that we can work with and collaborate with and connect with in good times and in bad". "But I would also say in a way, I've been preparing for this job for my entire life".

Boone's career with NY was brief. He injured his left knee while playing basketball during the following offseason, setting off a sequence of events that led to the Yankees' February 2004 trade for Alex Rodriguez.

As such, Cashman said that he was prepared to make his recommendation to managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner, which turned out to be Boone.

Boone's grandfather, Ray, was a two-time All-Star infielder from 1948-60.

This is for the fourth consecutive month that the index has come in above 50 point mark that separates expansion from contraction. This suggests that capital spending, especially in the domestic market, is showing signs of renewed vigour.

He's been around the game his whole life, so even if it is his first managing, he's not some unknown just waltzing into NY. He had been at ESPN since his retirement as a player. "I'm 44 years old now, 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".

"I just feel like it's started to really pull at me", he said.

His dad has worked for the Washington Nationals since December 2004 and now is an assistant general manager. 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.

A popular clubhouse presence during his playing career, Boone has been a television analyst since his retirement in 2009, giving him considerable exposure to the ocean of advanced statistics that have become vitally important in overseeing a big league game.

The role has evolved to become a more direct conduit to the front office, with increasing emphasis on tying decisions about lineups and strategies decisions to analytics.
