Boone said on November 17 that he believes his brief time with the Yankees will help him prepare for the challenges of managing in the NY spotlight. "That's part of the game and Major League sports".

"I find myself managing games all the time and thinking about strategies and how I would handle different situations", Boone said. There's pressure that goes along with that. Thomson, who had been in the Yankees' organization for 28 seasons, plans to accept a bench coach position with the Phillies, while Beltran has said that he is looking forward to spending time at home with his family.

In the run-up to compiling a list of managerial candidates, "I reached out to Alex a number of times, " Cashman said.

The news came down on Friday night that the longtime third baseman will become the next Yankees manager for the 2018 season; succeeding Joe Girardi, who parted ways with the team after 10 years in the Bronx. "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".
