Yankees set to name Aaron Boone as next manager

It's official: Aaron Boone is the 33rd manager in Yankee history, as first reported by the Daily News on Friday.

Five days after NY lost to Houston in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman announced October 26 that Girardi was not being offered a new contract after 10 years, one World Series title and a 910-710 regular-season record.

Boone, however, has no managerial or coaching experience and has been working as an ESPN analyst since retiring following the 2009 season. Apparently, the Yankees believe Boone will be better suited to achieve that.

Meulens is now working as the bench coach for the San Francisco Giants and was on the coaching staff for all three of the Giants' World Series championships in 2010, 2012 and 2014. The Yankees also interviewed Carlos Beltran, Eric Wedge, Chris Woodward, and Rob Thomson.

Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said in a statement, "I firmly believe that Aaron possesses the attributes needed to follow in the tradition of great Yankees managers".

The Boones are the first family to produce three generations of major leaguers. His father, Bob, was a four-time All-Star catcher from 1972 to '90, then managed Kansas City from 1995 to '97 and Cincinnati from 2001 to '03. With the apparent lack of communication in a clubhouse that Joe Girardi ran, Boone has a chance to improve on relationships with players, particularly Gary Sanchez.Sanchez was reportedly upset with Girardi after he called the 25-year old out publicly on his defense, along with benching him against the Cleveland Indians.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, Aaron and Bob Boone will be just the third father-son duo to both manage big-league teams. Aaron has also spent a lifetime immersed in baseball, affording him a unique and intimate understanding of what fosters team success. Later that year, he famously hit a dramatic, series-clinching home run in the bottom of the 11th inning of Game 7 of the ALCS, giving the Yankees a 6-5 victory over their rival, Boston Red Sox.

"Aaron's name is already etched into Yankees history, and my family and I are excited to welcome him back to this franchise".

"He definitely recognizes how much it's changed over the last couple years, five years, 10 years, to where - especially with analytics these days, it's a different job", Aaron Boone said. "I can't wait to get to work - and that work starts now".
