The New York Yankees have been looking for a new manager since they decided to let Joe Girardi go, following their game 7 loss to the Astros in the American League Championship Series. It seems, now, they have found their man in ESPN analyst Aaron Boone. Boone holds a special place in Yankee history as he hit the game winning home run in the 2003 ALCS to beat the hated Red Sox. He will be following a man in Joe Girardi who had managed the Yankees for 10 years and who led the team to a World Series win in 2009. Boone has never managed or coached at any level. He did play in the majors from 1997-2009 and comes from the legendary Boone family. His grandfather Ray was a two-time all-star and played from 1948-1960. His father Bob was a four-time all-star during his career that went from 1972-1990, and managed both the Royals and the Reds. His brother Bret was a three-time all-star and played from 1992-2005. There is no doubt Aaron Boone has baseball in his blood and he knows the game. The question is: Did the Yankees make the right choice in hiring Aaron Boone?
