They want a guy who will just implement the computer algorithm generated new statistic based strategies.

I was thinking of applying I will work for cheap relatively speaking. Who needs expertise, the analysts will take care of it all. Just follow the baseball by numbers strategy and look good in the uniform

Like said, Cash should just put a uniform on since he wants to be field manager, too.
Not sure why they’d interview Boone

before they get to guys like Pedrique, Bell, Hillman. Hoping just a case of more going on behind the scenes than we or the reporters know

Since Cashman has said he would make all the candidates available to the media after their interviews it seems they've only interviewed Thompson.

From this fans view the way I read it is. #1 Cashman really really couldn't wait to get rid of Girardi for whatever his reasons were because he obviously had no plan on who to replace him. #2 Cashman has placed a very low level of importance on the value of a field manager.

I think he's right. The only thing a field manager can do with the Yankees for the next 5 years is screw it up. I guess Cashman thought Girardi was screwing it up with Betances and Sanchez maybe others we don't know about.

It’s been made very clear that Cashman didn’t think Girardi was relating to the players very well. Betances and Sanchez are just two of the biggest examples. Kay has said it. Teixeira has said it. Girardi is a very nice man that everyone respects, but he’s not a guy that players felt that they could talk to.
Very tough to find

a good leader of men, that is subservient. Almost guaranteed it will someone with little experience getting the job.

Good points...I was one of those who assumed Cashman had a short list of top candidates in mind when he made the Girardi decision (maybe he still does)...so I’m just surprised he would be casting the net wide enough to include a guy like Boone with zero manager/coaching or player development experience since he stopped playing
FWIW, from MLB Trade Rumors

"The Yankees’ Managerial Search
Posted: 09 Nov 2017 07:51 PM PST

After yesterday’s announcement that Joe Girardi won’t be back to manage the team in 2018, the Yankees are now looking for just their third skipper in the last 22 seasons. The new manager will step into an enviable situation, taking over a team with one of the sport’s biggest payrolls and an array of young star talent, though there will be immediate pressure on the new dugout boss to win. Eight years without a World Series counts as a major drought by the Yankees’ standards, and since the current roster finished just a game shy of the AL pennant, there is reason to believe this group is ready to win now.

As with previous and ongoing managerial searches (such as the Phillies and Nationals), we’ll keep a running post on any news and rumors connected to possible candidates for the Yankees’ job. The latest…

Team Approach
 Yankees GM Brian Cashman discussed the search with reporters, including MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch. Cashman said that the organization prefers a “fresh voice” to connect with its young players, indicating that Girardi wasn’t the man to improve “the connectivity and the communication level of the players in that clubhouse.” The veteran executive says he did not enter the search process with a list of candidates already prepared, suggesting it’s a wide-open search.
 Interestingly, as Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports (Twitter links), the plan is for candidates to meet with the media — in part, perhaps, as part of the evaluation process. And though Cashman says he may in the past have sought out employees with whom he had previously worked, he notes that won’t be a “driving force” in this case. Sherman previously discussed that potential factor.

Interviewing Candidates
 Bench coach Rob Thomson sat down with the organization about the managerial opening on November 8th, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic (via Twitter), though it doesn’t seem as if he faced the press afterward. Thomson has been on Girardi’s staff since 2008 and previously worked in the Yankees’ player development department.

Preliminary Candidates (Interview Status Unknown)
 Though an interview has not yet been scheduled, it seems that Aaron Boone is set to receive consideration for the job, according to ESPN.com’s Buster Olney (via Twitter). The long-time big leaguer, who spent a small but memorable portion of his career with the Yankees, does not have any big league coaching experience. Most recently, he has served as an ESPN analyst.

 Former major league infielder/outfielder Jerry Hairston Jr. is a potential candidate, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic hears (Twitter link). Hairston was a member of the Yankees’ most recent World Series-winning team in 2009, but he doesn’t bring any coaching experience to the table. Interestingly, though, former ESPN.com writer Mark Saxon noted back in 2013 that managing could be in Hairston’s future. As Saxon detailed, Hairston is fluent in Spanish – a valuable asset for a manager – and, at the time, was a mentor to some of his younger teammates on the Dodgers. That season went down as the last of Hairston’s playing career. The 41-year-old has been working as a Dodgers broadcaster since retiring in December 2013.

 Per Sherman and MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, some of the internal candidates likely to receive consideration include bench coach Rob Thomson, first base coach Tony Pena, minor league hitting and baserunning coach Reggie Willits, and minor league managers Al Pedrique (Triple-A), Jay Bell (advanced A-ball) and Josh Paul (short season A-ball). Former Yankee outfielder and current Dodgers special adviser Raul Ibanez is mentioned by both Sherman and Hoch, while Sherman also cites Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens as someone “who could come into play” for the job.
Unlikely Candidates/Not In The Mix/No Longer Under Consideration

 Josh Paul isn’t considered a candidate, according to George A. King III of the New York Post.

 Kevin Long was initially cited by Sherman as “a long shot,” but has since signed on to become the Nationals’ hitting coach.

 Yankees VP of baseball operations Tim Naehring tells ESPN.com’s Andrew Marchand that he isn’t interested in being considered for the job. Naehring has worked almost entirely in front office capacities for the Reds and Yankees since he retired from playing, and Marchand suggests that Naehring is a future GM candidate for other teams.

 The Yankees hadn’t contacted the Marlins about manager Don Mattingly as of yesterday afternoon, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Since the Yankees seem to be looking for a more youthful manager, the 56-year-old Mattingly may not be the ideal candidate, despite his long-standing Yankees ties and his previous status as a finalist for the Yankee manager’s job before Girardi was hired. The expectation is that Mattingly will return to manage the Marlins next year, as he and Derek Jeter have “a good relationship.”

 The idea of Alex Rodriguez becoming the Yankees’ manager is “the longest of long shots,” according to Hoch. Given the controversy and hard feelings that seemed to accompany A-Rod’s final years in New York, Rodriguez would indeed seem like a very unlikely fit, especially given how he has seemingly moved onto a new career in broadcasting.

Don't get your panties all up in a wad just yet ...  
Beer Man : 11/10/2017 10:35 am : link
Boone is one of a number of names being listed as a candidate. I imagine there will be a number of candidates interviewed in the coming few weeks, before a manager is selected who has the characteristics Cash believes are needed to manage a young, up & coming team.
Bryan Hoch  
Pete in MD : 11/10/2017 10:40 am : link
had a great Mets blog back in the early 2000s. Then the MLB started cracking down on websites and blogs that they didn't control/make money off of. It's sort of ironic he now works for MLB.com (and covers the Yankees.)
Plus ...  
Beer Man : 11/10/2017 10:41 am : link
We will hear a lot of names thrown out in the press, whether the Yankees consider them a possible candidate or not. If your a baseball person with aspirations to manage a team. A group of hungry talented kids on the cusp of perhaps something very special, would have to be very enticing.
I would like them to consider Matt Holiday  
batman11 : 11/10/2017 11:40 am : link
as manager, or temporarily as player/manager. He reportedly is well respected in the club house and around the league and has an especially good relationship with Judge. Just a thought...
We interviewed Eric Wedge, too.

Casting a wide net I see.
If Yanks want analytics

Robbie the Robot is great at it and works cheap.
And speaks any player's language they can program him for.
And is personable.
Be nice if they hire one by, oh, Christmas 2017.

A former RSox player as head of baseball operations?
That's blasphemy or something,no?

Is held accountable when the yanks win 85 games, don't snag the division title and achieve far less in general. What's with New York sports these days? One gm thinks he can win without an O line and another thinks the manager plays no role in the sport of baseball. Jeez.....

Never a losing season, even with some crap he had. So yeah, I'd say he was a net positive.

Cashman a clown pretty much makes any GM in MLB a clown since Cash has a really good track record.

Given the two track records, I’m just going to go ahead and trust the clown Cashman over you. Anyone that calls Cashman a clown after what he’s done the last few years really needs to re-examine their mental health.

It really gets tiresome to hear the whiners who couldn't tell you the first thing about managing or running a team cry about how Cashman wants a robot in the dugout or how he is a clown for changing managers. Clueless people who are given a platform and actually believe that their opinions mean something more than this mornings bowel movement are quite literally the worst thing about the Internet.
Yes, but he had the one good HR
