Aaron Boone: Making sense of the Yankees new manager

Aaron Boone will be named the next manager of the New York Yankees, sources confirmed to ESPN's Buster Olney.

It's easy to imagine an experienced ex-MLB manager, such as Eric Wedge, serving as Boone's bench coach (Boone played for Wedge in Cleveland) and pitching coach Larry Rothschild is returning to guide the staff.

In a conference call with reporters on November 17, after his interview with the Yankees, Boone said he would relish the high-pressure job of managing the storied franchise. His grandfather Ray was a major league third baseman and his brother Bret was a four-time All-Star.

On Friday morning, before the news leaked, Cashman was in Stamford, Connecticut, rehearsing for his annual rappelling down a building for charity. He said he made a decision to stop the interviewing process after meeting with six candidates and that he would make a recommendation to ownership and they could go from there.

Wife Laura goes on church mission trips and Boone went with her on one in January of 2015 to Haiti following the devastating quake.

"It's a great place to work", Cashman said. "Open-mindedness to information. Being able to package all the tools in the toolbox, all that information [and] bandwidth and then laser-focus it in a way the players can understand it on a day-in, day-out basis".

Judge rips Conor McGregor for 'disrespect to the court'
Judge Walsh said: "If he wants to argue that case, he can come to this court himself with a proper legal representative". She told him that despite his good fortune in life he should take cognisance of other road users and reduce his speed.

But the Boone-Yankees bond has roots that go back 14 years, not because of his pennant-winning home run in 2003, but his quick display of responsibility and integrity a few months later.

"One of the big parts of the job is relationships, " said Boone, a point he expanded on. Sources said Carlos Beltran was informed he would not be the manager, but the just-retired outfielder could be considered for another role in the organization.

"I find myself managing games all the time and thinking about strategies and how I would handle different situations", Boone said. "He certainly connected with me about what his thoughts are and the types of people he thinks we should play on".

That's good news because managing in NY is not an easy task-whether you're in the Bronx or even in Queens, you're constantly under the microscope. Sometimes they even make the front page.

With reigning AL home run king Aaron Judge, power-hitting catcher Gary Sanchez, ace Luis Severino, a top-notch bullpen and ascendant young infielder Gleyber Torres all at his disposal, Boone should have the resources necessary to morph the Yankees into a perennial powerhouse once he gets acclimated to life on the bench. We'll have to wait and see.
