Hensley Meulens and Aaron Boone are favorites to be next Yankees manager

Interviews are over and the Yankees will pick between the six candidates who have already interviewed for the job — Aaron Boone, Hensley Meulens, Carlos Beltran, Eric Wedge, Rob Thompson and Chris Woodward.

According to George King of the NY Daily News — Meulens and Boone are the favorites and Beltran has an outside shot. Here’s more:

Based on sourced information from how all the interviews went down, it appears Boone, Meulens and Beltran all made the strongest impressions on Cashman and his team of close advisers that included VP of Baseball Operations Tim Naehring, assistant GM Mike Fishman and Senior VP Jean Afterman who were part of the process. You probably have to eliminate Beltran if only because it is highly unlikely Cashman would turn the managerial reins over to someone fresh out of the player ranks — which brings it down to either Boone or Meulens, either of whom would be a popular choice if for no other reason than their engaging personalities.

    Bam Bam is the one we need.
    Not Boone. Coney before Boone and Beltran

    To me it seems odd that after Beltran's interview, the Yankees decided not to interview anyone else. Perhaps thinking Beltran was the one. The fact that the Yankees interviewed Beltran nullified the thought that just because he was fresh out of still playing, they would not be interested. Why even talk to him if they weren't interested. We'll know when the Yankees tell us. I don't have a problem with any of the choices. At this point you just need someone to not eff it up.

    That’s a good hire. Like TL of Arizona, he’s a baseball guy that also gets the new metrics. Should be a better communicator than Joe. What? A third generational ML player with a wealth of first hand knowledge to draw from. He gets baseball and how it should be played, he grew up around it. Congrats Mr. Boone! Now, let’s improve the roster just a tad more for him and come on ST
