Aaron Boone was chosen out of a pool of six candidates that included Carlos Beltran, Hensley Muelens, Rob Thomas, Chris Woodward, and Eric Wedge. Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman has faith in Boone — though he has no previous managing experience.
After the Yankees came within one game of the World Series to end the 2017 season, expectations for the 2018 season will be high. The ole’ World Series or bust motto is back in New York. There’s no question Boone has plenty of talent on the roster — it’ll be up to him to put the pieces together to begin what could be the next Yankee Dynasty.
