Aaron Boone knows he has to convince players he can manage

Boone was a big league third baseman from 1997-2009 and an All-Star in 2003, when NY acquired him from the Reds at the trade deadline.

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 seasons, the team's 27th World Series title in 2009 and a 910-710 regular-season record.

Mendoza spent 12 years in the minor leagues, appearing in just 28 big league games where he hit.182 for the Mets and Rockies in 1997 and 2000, respectively.

Boone is the third new manager among the 10 teams that reached this year's playoffs after Boston's Alex Cora and Washington's Dave Martinez. I believe we are entering into a special time in New York Yankees history, and I am so excited to be a part of it.

Former New York Yankees Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone walk onto the field to throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Yankees playing against the Texas Rangers in Game Five of the ALCS during the 2010 MLB Playoffs at Yankee Stadium on October 20, 2010 in the Bronx borough of New York City.

"I know it's been a long road and I know a lot of people are surprised we're actually here", Cashman said.

Boone, who was one of six candidates, said his job interview with the Yankees lasted seven hours. "I left here and people asked me, 'How'd you do?' My answer was, 'I have no idea.' I think I represented really well. I can't wait to get to work - and that work starts now". When I got the call from Brian it was an emotional moment. In getting across how much he cares, "they'll know we're going to always do what's best for the Yankees". It was his walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS against the Boston Red Sox which clinched the pennant for the Yankees (who would go on to lose the World Series in six games to the Florida Marlins). His grandfather, father and brother all played in the major leagues and his father managed the Royals and the Reds.

With the pinstripes back on again, Boone chose uniform No. 17 and talked about the importance of having the respect of the players.

Boone put an emphasis on establishing relationships with his players, allowing an open and honest dialogue.

"That's a respect you earn, and hopefully I think in short order I'll be able to earn that respect, that they'll be able to look at me, trust in me, know that I have their interest at heart, but know that hopefully I know what the heck I'm talking about", he said.
