Along with Boone and Meulens, the Yankees interviewed four other candidates: recently retired outfielder Carlos Beltran, longtime Yankees coach Rob Thomson (who sources say will now join the Phillies as their bench coach), former big league manager Eric Wedge and Dodgers third-base coach Chris Woodward.
A-Rod has received high marks as a baseball analyst in his current role for Fox Sports. All of the Boone's played in one or more MLB All-Star Games.

And he's been able to thrive in the spotlight before; just like Girardi did. On Dec. 1, the Yankees decided Aaron was the man.
Whatever their relationship with Girardi, those players helped the Yankees win the top AL wild card spot and make a deep playoff run, a rapid rise for a team that seemed to be in transition. Both had incredible success.
