Yankees tab Aaron Boone as next manager

  • Aaron Boone Reportedly Named Yankees Manager over Hensley Meulens

As manager of the Yankees, Boone will be under a microscope and very little will remain unknown about him starting today. Boone has not been in uniform since retiring as a player eight years ago, but his hiring continues a trend around the majors. That's a good thing, because Aaron Boone doesn't have any.

Boone, who famously hit an ALCS Game 7 home run against the Red Sox that propelled the Yankees into the 2003 World Series, doesn't have any coaching or managerial experience at any level and has spent the past seven years as a broadcaster with ESPN. "I think he'd be a flawless fit for us, someone that our new manager and coaching staff and players would enjoy having".

Boone is part of a three-generation baseball family. Boone's walk-off home run in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox sent NY to the World Series and extended Boston's "Curse of the Bambino". His grandfather Ray Boone was an infielder for six teams from 1948 through 1960. and his father, Bob, was one of the most durable catchers in major league history, lasting from 1972 through 1990. 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.

Fortunately, Beltran's baseball mind could still be with the Yankees in some capacity next year. Accompanying her caption was a link to an article entitled, "The best and only choice for Yankees manager is obvious," lobby for Rodriguez to fill the vacant position. And for the Yankees sake, he's the next manager to bring a championship back to NY.

However, he said some airlines chose to cancel flights between Bali and Australia following the latest volcanic activity. There are fears the volcano could erupt for the first time since 1963, when almost 1,600 people died.

Aaron Boone should be a fine manager with the Yankees. After his job interview, Boone said he grasped the demands. To replace Joe Girardi as the Yankees' head man in the dugout, Boone had to beat out five other serious candidates, including ex-MLB manager Eric Wedge, and recently retired (and probable future Hall of Famer) Carlos Beltran.

"I understand what it is to be a Yankee", he said.

"I know what I would be signing up for", he said.

He added, "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". 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.
