Aaron Boone, hero of 2003 ALCS, will be next manager of Yankees

Aaron Bleepin’ Boone it is.

The Yankees have chosen Boone to replace Joe Girardi as manager, the News first reported.

Boone, 44, who catapulted the Bombers to the World Series in 2003 with his iconic walk-off homer in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Red Sox, is said to have been the most polished candidate of the group.

Brian Cashman had been intrigued by Boone, who was serving as a baseball television analyst at ESPN. He has no previous managerial or coaching experience, but clearly impressed team brass during his interview.

Cashman recommended Boone to Hal Steinbrenner, picking him from a pool of six candidates that included Carlos Beltran, Hensley Meulens, Rob Thomson, Chris Woodward and Eric Wedge — all of whom interviewed for the job.

On Friday, after Cashman said he was finished interviewing candidates and was ready to make a recommendation to ownership, the News reported that it would come down to Boone and Meulens.
