New York Yankees Will Make Aaron Boone Their New Manager

Since retiring from baseball in 2010, Boone has been an analyst for ESPN, appearing on Monday Night Baseball, Baseball Tonight, and most recently Sunday Night Baseball.

"I would say in a way I've been preparing for this job for the last 44 years", Boone said after interviewing for the job in mid-November, according to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com). A lot of guys not only established themselves this year, but established themselves as stars.

He said he made a decision to stop the interviewing process after meeting with six candidates and that he would make a recommendation to ownership and they could go from there. Those are challenges that the affable Boone should be able to handle as he begins to familiarize himself with the team's young roster.

Bob Boone was speaking from a Little League field in San Diego, where his twin grandsons - the children of Aaron's brother, Bret - were playing in a travel baseball game, perhaps on their way to extending the family's already unprecedented three-generation lineage in the sport.

"One of the big parts of the job is relationships, " said Boone, a point he expanded on.

Girardi and the Yankees parted ways after he completed the final season of a four-year, $16 million contract in October, his final game a Game 7 ALCS loss to the Houston Astros. You probably have to eliminate Beltran if only because it is highly unlikely Cashman would turn the managerial reins over to someone fresh out of the player ranks - which brings it down to either Boone or Meulens, either of whom would be a popular choice if for no other reason than their engaging personalities. It should be fascinating to see if Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner are making the right move.

The worldwide airport on the neighbouring resort island of Lombok, which was closed on Thursday, reopened on Friday morning. Only those booked to fly to Amsterdam on KLM's normal daily flight are legally entitled to a duty of care from the airline.


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. "My dad was in the big leagues from the time I was born to a senior in high school".

Just a day after it was announced that Herm Edwards was next up to be the head coach of Arizona State's football team, we have learned that Aaron Boone will be leaving The Worldwide Leader to go manage the most storied franchise in all of sports (probably), the New York Yankees.

Boone's time with the Yankees as a player wasn't very long; he broke his leg playing a pickup game of basketball; an injury that led to the trade of Alex Rodriguez in February of 2004.

The New York Yankees have found their man. "I think that's something that many of us relish in - the opportunity to have something on the line and a lot at stake is, I think, something that makes you want to go after it". "I know what I would be signing up for".
