"He definitely recognizes how much it's changed over the last couple years, five years, 10 years, to where - especially with analytics these days, it's a different job", Aaron Boone said.

Just a day after it was announced that Herm Edwards was next up to be the head coach of Arizona State's football team, we have learned that Aaron Boone will be leaving The Worldwide Leader to go manage the most storied franchise in all of sports (probably), the New York Yankees. "I know what I would be signing up for". "There's a lot to consider and there's a lot of great information out there that is instilled into the game today".

Bob, now a front-office executive with the Washington Nationals, made four All-Star teams and won seven Gold Glove Awards in 19 years with the Phillies, Angels and Royals through 1989.

Of course, the former infielder is known best for his 11 inning home run in Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series at Yankee Stadium (the old one) to send the Yankees to the World Series.

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

Boone was the fourth of the candidates to interview with the Yankees, going through about six hours of conversations at Yankee Stadium on November 17.

Boone has been an ESPN baseball analyst since 2010.

"When they interviewed him, I thought he had a great chance". Boone said he didn't think his lack of managerial experience would be a deterrent.

Just like Joe Girardi, Aaron Boone is another former Yankee player to become a manager.

Given the Yankees roster and their being set up for long-term success, Aaron Boone should continue the trend of winning baseball in the Bronx.

It's one thing for a first time manager to get a rebuilding team to get their feet wet. "Aaron is not Joe, but Aaron has the same mannerisms in that he attracts people to him and they are very comfortable being around him, and vice versa".

Whatever their relationship with Girardi, those players helped the Yankees win the top AL wild card spot and make a deep playoff run, a rapid rise for a team that seemed to be in transition.

Boone said on November 17 that he believes his brief time with the Yankees will help him prepare for the challenges of managing in the NY spotlight. "I think going into that, there will be a lot of heat on you, too, but I think that heat is something that if you were a player and you're really into it, it's what you relish".
