The new bleepin' manager of the Yankees
Overall, I'm fine with the move. There wasn't a no-brainer candidate out there. I was a little surprised at the process though. I really figured that Brian Cashman had a plan in place once he let Girardi walk, but it really didn't seem like he did. Maybe he did at one point and then it didn't unfold as he expected. Or maybe he just went in with a completely open mind.
Boone is walking into a good situation with a group of exciting young players; ones he must win-over and relate to, and also maximize their potential. I suspect his bench coach will have strong coaching experience, and I'm interested to see how he fills out his staff. We do know that Larry Rothschild will return as pitching coach, so I like the stability there.
I wish Aaron Boone the best of luck, and hope he is the right answer for a long, long time.
