I think if you can handle the press in NY you are a good candidate for the job, the baseball part is pretty straight forward...  there is no such thing as a managerial genuis, this game is not rocket science.

couldn't agree more Art.The press and the clubhouse. That's why think Pedrique won't get the job

Aaron Boone reportedly a candidate for Yankees' managerial job


11/10/2017 9:15 AM ET

By The Sports Xchange





Former Yankee and current broadcaster Aaron Boone is reportedly a candidate to become the club's next skipper.(AP)





Aaron Boone could make the jump from the broadcast booth back to the Yankees dugout in the near future.


The former New York postseason hero has been added to the list of managerial candidates the Yankees will consider to replace ousted skipper Joe Girardi, according to an ESPN report Thursday.


The 44-year-old former infielder is currently serving as an ESPN baseball commentator and analyst after a 12-year Major League career. He has not yet scheduled an interview with the Yankees about the position, per ESPN.


Boone hit a walk-off home run off Red Sox knuckleballer Tim Wakefield in the 11th inning of Game 7 of the teams' American League Championship Series on Oct. 16, 2003, to send the Yankees to the World Series.


Boone hit .254 with six home runs and 31 RBI in 54 games with the Yankees during the 2003 regular season after being traded to New York from the Cincinnati Reds. He hit .170 with two homers and four RBI in the playoffs that year.


In 12 Major League seasons, Boone batted .263 with 126 homers and 555 RBI in 1,152 games from 1997 to 2009.


The New York Daily News reported that current Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson has already interviewed for the open manager spot, while former Yankees David Cone and John Flaherty have expressed interest in the position.

I hate waiting and I hate Ham. So no I would not fight for ham. Ham needs to hurry up and ship Otani to the Yankees.

Exactly!


I totally agree with that.


In addition, there is also that requirement, imposed by Cashman, that who will ever will be the new manager of teh Yankees will have to have a good understand of baseball analytics. Anyone who has that ability to grasp and understand this baseball concept, the game gets even more straight forward because you just go with what the computer models suggest because they're based primarily on numbers. 


The question is, if the computer takes all the stats and splits for every player (from both teams) , plug it into it's algorithm,  and spits out an optimal lineup against a certain pitcher, would it be wise to go with that? If the numbers say so, why not?


In that case, it really wouldn't matter if Aaron Boone or even Pat Boone manages the Yankees.
