Yankees complete interviews for next manager; A-Rod not among choices

Yankees complete interviews for next manager; A-Rod not among choices

The New York Daily News, one of several outlets reporting the move, said Yankees officials were attracted to Boone's "polish".

ESPN's Buster Olney confirmed the hire. Meulens has been coaching since 2003 and was recently named the San Francisco Giants bench coach after eight years as their hitting coach.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Meulens was the other finalist for the job.

It is clear, based on the candidates who interviewed and the decision to part ways with Girardi, that Cashman wants a bigger influence over the man calling the shots in the Yankees dugout.

Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons works with ESPN's Jessica Mendoza, Tim Kurkjian and Aaron Boone for a live Sportscenter piece before a spring training baseball workout in February of 2016 in Tempe, Ariz.

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

Having played a half-season in pinstripes, Boone believes he understands "what it is to be a Yankee, " and the "expectations that go with it, and certainly the expectations now that will be ramped up even more after such a successful season".

HollywoodLifers, do you think Aaron Boone is a good choice to be the manager of the Yankees.

Boone had a rather pedestrian career as a player but the highlight of his career came as a member of the Yankees. 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. "I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 or 4 years old". His grandfather Ray was a major league third baseman and his brother Bret was a four-time All-Star. He'll have that in Boone, who was plucked from the TV set and thrust into his first managerial job. Boone, of course, is yet to manage at any level.

On the sidelines of the Pac-12 championship game on Friday night stood USC product Aaron Boone, whose life-changing day added a cherry on top when his Trojans upended his father's alma mater, Stanford, for the school's first conference title in football in nine years. "And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager". Brian Cashman is banking on a former player turned manager to become the next in line to have that same kind of success.

"I reached out to Alex a number of times, 'Hey, what do you got?' I looked for a lot of guidance from a lot of people that I have a lot of respect for, and Alex knows baseball as well as anybody" Cashman said.
