Brian Cashman announced this morning he has made his decision and will recommend a manager from the six interviews he has conducted in the his search for the next New York Yankees manager.

So we now have it down to six people, from originally a list of like 40… Let’s take a look at who it’s now down to, shall we?

They say don’t judge a book by it’s cover… But I’ve never let anyone tell me what to do before, why start now? Right?

Basically what I am looking for here is whether I SEE the next Yankee manager when I look at these guys.

Eric Wedge UNDOUBTEDLY would have my favorite “look” of the bunch. A loose cannon with a handlebar mustache like that is obviously going to win my heart. It’d be insane to think otherwise. However, I don’t see the Yankees letting a guy that ever looked like┬áSer Davos Seaworth be their next manager…

…so, unfortunately for me, probably no Eric Wedge.

Aaron Boone is a true one-hit wonder in Yankees lure and so there is this glow about him none of the others really have. However, I just don’t like something about him. He seems to have a hidden agenda when I look at his face.

Chris Woodward I just don’t see getting hired for this spot at all. Too skinny or something. He just looks like a bitch.

Hensley Meulens on the other hand looks like he doesn’t take anything from anyone… A man of few words but when he speaks, you listen. However, given the alleged story that Girardi left because he wasn’t communicating well enough, I don’t think they go with a guy like that. Again, this is all based on looks, so yeah, we aren’t going with a poor guy’s Dusty Baker.

Rob Thomson already looks the part. He really does. I think he’s make a fine manager and we’d look like that classy organization with a guy who knows what he’s doing. I’d like to hear it’s Thomson.

And then there was one: Carlos Beltran. Honestly, he might be my favorite. He is a well respected guy in the league, he has that Bronx Hispanic look that none of the others can duplicate. He already has been a Yankee… I’m telling you, I think Beltran is my choice.

But I’m not sure what Cashman is thinking. All I know is you gotta trust a man who conducts press conferences right before going repelling in a New Jersey Devils hockey jersey… Which might go down in history and just the most outrageous thing of all time:

I am excited and nervous for whoever it is, but let me make this clear – whoever it is, is inheriting a World Series bound (in the next few years at least) team… Easiest job in sports.
