Yankees complete interviews for next manager; A-Rod not among choices

  • J.Lo Tried To Shoot Her Shot To Get A-Rod The Yankees' Manager Job With This IG Post

Now 44, Boone has never been a manager or even a coach at any level since retiring as a player after the 2009 season.

The Yankees made it to the seventh game of the American League Championship Series a little ahead of schedule, so Boone will be working with a young and hungry team which got its first taste of playoff baseball.

But that isn't stopping the former Major League Baseball slugger-turned-analyst's girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, from trying to shoot her shot to get A-Rod hired as the Yankees' next manager.

The New York Daily News was the first to report the hiring.

Aaron Boone played 12 seasons in the majors, mostly with Cincinnati, and spent only three months with the Yankees in 2003. He tore a knee ligament in a pickup basketball game during the 2003-04 offseason and was released by the Yankees, who replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez.

"One of the big parts of the job is relationships, " said Boone, a point he expanded on. His father Bob was a major league player until Aaron was a senior in high school and managed the Reds from 1995-97 and the Royals from 2001-03.

Speaking earlier Friday, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said he had consulted with Rodriguez about the candidates, but said the former Yankee was not one of them. Cashman later said he was concerned over "ability to fully engage, communicate, connect with the playing personnel".

As things stand, Aaron Boone will be the next manager of the New York Yankees.

As the new Yankees manager, Boone is committed to the 2017 version of a manager who embraces analytics and sees his office as "an extension of the front office". 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. "He certainly connected with me about what his thoughts are and the types of people he thinks we should play on".

Fortunately, Beltran's baseball mind could still be with the Yankees in some capacity next year.

Four of the six candidates who interviewed for the job at Yankee Stadium have ties with the team.

"I just feel like it's started to really pull at me", he said.

"I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 and 4 years old, and in a way managing the game from a very young age", Boone said.

Larry Rothschild is signed to return as the Yankees' pitching coach for next season, but the team must now begin filling the rest of Boone's staff.
