Aaron Boone 'exactly what (Yankees) need in the clubhouse' says proud dad

The New York Yankees became the final Major League Baseball team to fill a managerial vacancy by hiring Aaron Boone, according to multiple reports.

During the interviews, the candidates took a break to speak with the media via conference call, allowing Cashman and his lieutenants to gauge how they would fare during news conferences. The most recent interviewee, nine-time All Star Carlos Beltran, met with Cashman and other team officials for several hours Wednesday.

But that isn't stopping the former Major League Baseball slugger-turned-analyst's girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, from trying to shoot her shot to get A-Rod hired as the Yankees' next manager. That last part might be one of the main differences between Boone and the man he replaces, Joe Girardi, though we won't know for sure until he start managing some games. "Being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game".

Boone had a rather pedestrian career as a player but the highlight of his career came as a member of the Yankees. 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. I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 and 4 years old. Steinbrenner approved, giving Boone his first managing job at any level.

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.


"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.

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.

That hire was first broken by The New York Daily News, and was later confirmed by ESPN.

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".

Those candidates do not include Alex Rodriguez, who Cashman said he consulted with on the matter, although he did not express an interest in the job. 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.
