Yanks choose Boone as next manager

Yanks choose Boone as next manager

Now, at 44, he can build on that legacy as a rookie manager for the team.

Boone does not have any coaching experience, but he grew up around baseball with his father Bob, a former manager. After making the trip down the building in one piece, he spoke with gathered reporters and told them about his decision-making process.

General manager Brian Cashman, who traded for Boone down the stretch in 2003, recommended him as the manager to Hal Steinbrenner, the Yankees' managing general partner. He'll have that in Boone, who was plucked from the TV set and thrust into his first managerial job. He had been a broadcaster for ESPN since 2010.

According to New York Daily News, the New York Yankees have named Aaron Boone their new manager. Girardi had been a major league coach and manager when he replaced Joe Torre a decade ago.

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. "But I would also say that I've been preparing for this job my entire life. He certainly connected with me about what his thoughts are and the types of people he thinks we should play on".

HollywoodLifers, do you think Aaron Boone is a good choice to be the manager of the Yankees. He grew up in a baseball family. In 2003, he played in 55 regular-season games with the Bronx Bombers and was part of the squad that lost to the Marlins in that year's World Series.

And now, Bob and Aaron Boone will become just the fourth father/son duo to both manage in Major League Baseball, joining Connie and Earle Mack, George and Dick Sisler, and Bob and Joel Skinner.

In his conference call with the news media following his interview, Boone outlined his conversation with the Yankees, which he said centered around his stance and background in analytics and his communication style with players. Joe Girardi was let go after a season in which he led the Yankees to 91 wins and the ALCS before losing to the eventual world champion Astros. The average age of his last three teams has been a little over 27.

This earns him at least two years, right?

Aside from winning, that's the most important quality to have as a Yankee. "Expectations are ramped up even more".

"I find myself managing games all the time and thinking about strategies and how I would handle different situations", Boone said.

Thomson, who had spent 28 seasons in the Yankees' organization, most recently as the bench coach, is finalizing a deal to fill that role for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Israel strikes Syrian military base
The extent of the damage is not clear yet, although the TV report spoke of "material losses" at the base. In it, he addresses Iran's attempts to entrench itself in Syria and says Israel will not allow it.
