I am happy he is getting this job. I happen to think he will be terrific at it. I think the Yankees will win another World Series with him as their manager, and maybe more than one. I think there are obvious comparisons to be made with A.J. Hinch, who just won the Series managing the Astros, who managed almost a perfect Game 7, and Dave Roberts, who managed against Hinch. I know Boone hasn't coached or managed anywhere in his baseball life. But he sure has scouted, passionately and tirelessly, because anybody who ever worked with him or around him at ESPN knows what a bear he was for preparation, and not just about the game he was watching on a particular Sunday night.
