    Aaron Boone, Carlos Beltran, Hensley Meulens, Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge and Chris Woodward.

    If it’s Wedge, Cashman has really lost his mind.

    I would go with Meulens (from this group). If that happens, Thomson probably walks. And, so be it.

    Some think Beltran, being last interviewed before they announced no more interviews, is the guy.
    Me? I think the New York press will eat him alive.

      It’s now a gang of four…

      I still don’t get the hard on for Boone…

      Twitter is saying it’s Boone. A curious pick.

      They pick Boone with no coaching or managerial experience but can’t bother to even interview David Cone after he expressed interest?! That ticks me off.

      Fear not. Aaron Boone will blow out his knee at the Winter Meetings and then the Yankees will hire A-Rod to replace him as manager.

      @ Steve L.:
      Good one. I had forgotten that episode Steve.
      This is a head scratcher. I would have preferred Bam Bam. But really, doesn’t make a huge difference. Glad it’s decided. Now go get Ohtani.

      I’d have picked Meulens, too.
      This is an interesting pick, and by “interesting”, I mean: risky.
      Sure hope it works.

      Levine as bench coach? At least Joe Espada isn’t coaching third……….

      Some of you guys must have missed it, Cashman won Executive of the year! I wouldn’t have thought that Branch Rickey would ever have won one with the Yankees. I wonder if Gammons has written a long article on the topic…. 😉

      No-htani for the Yanks. :/

      Oh well. Guess the Yanks will have to focus on the recently liberated Braves prospects.

      There is nothing you can say at this point. Firing Girardi was a mistake, Aaron Boone is nothing but a shot in the dark, it’s pure guess work. I think there should be more to hiring a Yankee manager than he “interviewed well” (as I’m writing this my son just came into the room and announced the Giants fired McAdoo and Reese).

      I wonder if Boone is going to be nothing more than a mouthpiece in the chain-of-command. Maybe Hal will be calling for curves/fastballs, IBB, and tell Boone what line-up to use 😉 Or maybe it really will be closer to that than we’d think. The analytics “people” are probably convinced that managers are expensive idiots…..

      PS, the firing was strange, strange, strange………

      It’s a little premature to say that firing Girardi was a mistake.
      It might very well have been a mistake.
      It might very well be that Boone is a second mistake.

      But it’s a little premature to make those judgment.
