Aaron Boone to be named Yankees manager

The Mets, on the other hand, have gone with second- or third-chance managers who needed to revive their careers. That's a good thing, because Aaron Boone doesn't have any. Here are a few things to start with. And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager. "In a way, I've been preparing for this job my entire life".

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. All of the Boone's played in one or more MLB All-Star Games. Hopefully, Aaron will have more managerial success than his father, as Bob never led a team to an above-.500 record in six seasons.

During the interview process, Cashman consulted with Alex Rodriguez, but the former Yankee was not a candidate. It was a bit of a surprise but he was Brian Cashman's choice.

"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).

Cashman said that while there was no flawless 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".

Fortunately, Beltran's baseball mind could still be with the Yankees in some capacity next year. The average age of his last three teams has been a little over 27.

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.

Aaron Boone should be a fine manager with the Yankees.

"I understand what it is to be a Yankee", he said. "Certainly the expectations now will be ramped up even more after such a successful season and when you look at the roster that we're going to potentially have out there".

"I feel like I am the guy that can hopefully help these guys go to another level as players", Boone said after his November 17 interview. Various reports suggest all of the candidates - Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge, Hensley Meulens, Aaron Boone, Chris Woodard, and Carlos Beltran - made an impression during their lengthy sit-downs with Cashman.

Larry Rothschild is signed to return as the Yankees' pitching coach for next season, but the team must now begin filling the rest of Boone's staff.
