Yankees interview Wedge, former Indians, Mariners manager

Yankees interview Wedge, former Indians, Mariners manager

It appears the Yankees are casting a wide net, and Boone - while lacking coaching experience - has a history with the organization. Bench coach Rob Thomson is the only candidate to do so at this time.

A number of candidates emerged as serious contenders to replace Girardi, namely Jerry Hairston Jr. After resigning in 2013, he accused the club of being dysfunctional and said there was no leadership under general manager Jack Zduriencik.

Eric Wedge, former manager of the Indians and Mariners, is the second candidate interviewed for the Yankees manager vacancy. An interview has not yet been scheduled. Joe Girardi posted a 910-710 record in 10 seasons in New York, the best record in MLB during that period, and the Yankees reached the playoffs six times, winning the 2009 World Series. Wedge most famously managed the Indians to a win over the Yankees in the 2007 American League Division Series. An analyst on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball the past two years, Boone should have no problem with that.

The fact that Boone hasn't been interviewed yet isn't surprising. Wedge bounced back and forth between the major leagues and the minor leagues before retiring in 1997 and becoming a minor league manager the following season.
