It's official.  Aaron Boone has been named manager of the New York Yankees.  The announcement was released first by the New York Daily News followed by a number of other media outlets including ESPN.  Boone has been a baseball analyst and familiar face on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball but has never managed a major league team.

"Boone, 44, is best known for his Game 7-winning home run in the 2003 American League Championship Series that extended the Red Sox curse and sent the Yankees to the World Series," reports ESPN.  According to the New York Daily News, "Cashman wanted a replacement that was a strong communicator who could be open-minded to new ideas -- including analytics and performance-science.  And it was Cashman that recommended Boone to the front office, who ultimately offered him the job late Friday."

We will have more on this story and how this impacts our 2018 team in subsequent reports right here on #BYB.  I think I am still in shock, but at the same time, it closes a search that lasted over a month.
