    I hear Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez were upset he didn't give them hugs when they struck out.

    Yes, it should still matter. In the long run, the overall vision is what the organization believes will lead to the best results. If that vision isn't being used by the people down the ladder, it sets the plan back, even if whatever is being used now, is working, for now.

    MLBTR says former Reds Aaron Boone and Jerry Hairston are candidates for the Yankees manager job.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov

    When the Yankees announced Joe Girardi would not be returning for an 11th season at the helm, the managerial vacancy for one of baseball's most storied franchises immediately became one of the biggest stories of the Hot Stove season.

    It's been the subject of much speculation and rumors, and several candidates have already emerged. Below is a closer look at the latest developments and some of the names in the mix for the job as the Yankees continue their search.


    Aaron Boone
    Boone emerged Thursday night as another candidate for the job. ESPN's Buster Olney first reported the news, and a source confirmed the report to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.
    Boone, 44, is an analyst for ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. The former infielder played 12 seasons in the big leagues, including part of the 2003 campaign with the Yankees. After arriving in a midseason trade with the Reds, Boone left his mark on Yankees history with his walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series against the Red Sox, sending them to the World Series.

    If I had to bet on a guy with zero managerial experience (at least not to my knowledge), Boone would be toward the top of my list.

    You can always blame a Boone.

    I know you’re playing for a laugh here. But you can learn from the mistakes of those to whom you are close. Also temperament wise, his dad was steady. If Aaron could be that emotionally consistent, while not playing Juan Castro at first base, he’d probably be fine.
