What a gamble! The New York Yankees after an extensive search have named former Major League Baseball infielder Aaron Boone to be the just the 35th manager in the team's history. It sent the Yankees to the World Series and helped extend the Sox's World Series curse, even though they'd go on to win it in 2004 for the first time since 1918.

Aside from winning, that's the most important quality to have as a Yankee.

He's actually as familiar with the media as you can be, having most recently worked as an analyst for ESPN. He has never managed or coached at any level. Rob Thomson, who had been with the Yankees for almost three decades and most recently was Joe Girardi's bench coach, is expected to move to the Philadelphia Phillies to be Gabe Kapler's bench coach, sources said. Boone's walk-off home run in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox sent NY to the World Series and extended Boston's "Curse of the Bambino".

Boone was a big league third baseman from 1997-2009 and an All-Star in 2003, when NY acquired him from the Reds at the trade deadline. He tore a knee ligament in a pickup basketball game during the 2003-04 offseason and was released by the Yankees, who replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez.

The Daily News said that the Yankees were looking for "a strong communicator who could be open-minded to new ideas - including analytics and performance-science". Sources said Carlos Beltran was informed he would not be the manager.

"Obviously, experience is very valuable and should be a check mark for somebody", Boone said. "I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 or 4 years old". His father Bob was a major league player until Aaron was a senior in high school and managed the Reds from 1995-97 and the Royals from 2001-03.

"I would say in a way I've been preparing for this job for the last 44 years", Boone said after interviewing for the job in mid-November, according to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com).

This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs. "And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager". "I looked for a lot of guidance from a lot of people that I have respect for, and Alex knows baseball as well as anybody". "He never expressed interest in any way, shape or form in it". "I think that's something that many of us relish - the opportunity to have something on the line and a lot at stake is, I think, something that makes you want to go after it".

Earlier this month, Alex Rodriguez already stated that he wasn't interested in managing the New York Yankees, the former team he played for, comparing the position to being the president of the United States.
