A report says Aaron Boone is the Yankees new manager

A popular clubhouse presence during his playing career, Boone has been a television analyst since his retirement in 2009, giving him considerable exposure to the ocean of advanced statistics that have become vitally important in overseeing a big league game. Steinbrenner had previously said he was reluctant to have a manager with no experience in the job.

Boone, 44, is best known for his Game 7-winning home run in the 2003 American League Championship Series that extended the Boston Red Sox's curse and sent the Yankees to the World Series.

"Look, obviously, experience is very valuable and should be a check mark for somebody", Boone told reporters in a conference call after his interview with the Yankees.

"I would say in a way I've been preparing for this job for the last 44 years", he said then.

"And I very much think that my job as manager would be to forge really strong relationships where these players understand that me and my staff are going to really care about them, that they're going to be able to trust us". 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. "Especially the last few years, I find myself managing games all the time and thinking about strategies and how I would handle different situations".

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

As such, Cashman said that he was prepared to make his recommendation to managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner, which turned out to be Boone.

HollywoodLifers, do you think Aaron Boone is a good choice to be the manager of the Yankees. He said Cashman contacted him about succeeding Girardi, whose contract was not renewed despite the Yankees' surprising surge to the ALCS.

The average age of Girardi's first seven Yankees rosters was always between 29.3 and 31.8 years, according to Baseball Reference.

Boone has no previous managerial experience, but spent 12 years in the majors with six clubs, including more than six seasons with the Cincinnati Reds (1997-2003), one with the Washington Nationals (2008) and 54 games with the Yankees (2003). "Expectations are ramped up even more". The six that interviewed for the job were Rob Thomson, Chris Woodward, Aaron Boone, Carlos Beltran, Hensley Meulens and Eric Wedge.

Apparently, Boone was the guy who checked most of the boxes.
