The Yankees know Joe Girardis succe sor will be one of six people.Brian Cashman told reporters Friday that the team is Harrison Smith T Shirts for its vacant managerial spot after speaking to Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge, Hensley Meulens, Aaron Boone, Chris Woodward and Carlos Beltran. Cashman said the next step is to make a recommendation to owner Hal Steinbrenner. There will not be a second round of interviews.MORE: Interestingly enough, the general manager consulted Alex Rodriguez on the candidates, though the former Yankees slugger turned special advisor is not up for consideration.With that said, lets break down the six men that are in the running.Rob ThomsonA Yankees lifer, Thomson was the first candidate to interview once New York decided to let Girardi walk. Thomson, who is also being considered for the Phillies bench coach position, spent 10 years on Girardis staff and has been in the New York organization since 1990.Since 2008, Thomson has either been the Yankees bench or third base coach. He has zero big-league managing experience, but has held various coaching and front office positions with the Yankees over the years. A known commodity to Cashman and the young players with whom he would be working, Thomson looks like the safest choice.Fun Fact: Thomson always flies wearing a suit and tie for road trips as a sign of respect for Yankees tradition. It used to be that team personnel didnt have a Kris Boyd Jersey choice under later owner George Steinbrenner.Eric WedgeWedge is the only man on this list with big-league managerial experience. He last worked as a skipper with the Mariners from 2011 to 2013. Before that he was with Cleveland from 2003 to 2009. He led the Indians to the playoffs and won Manager of the Year in 2007. It was the only time Wedge took a team to the playoffs. His all-time record is 774846.Before his coaching days, Wedge was a catcher with the Red Sox and Rockies. Since his time in Seattle, he has worked in the Blue Jays front office, where he picked up experience with analytics.Based on his track record, Wedge seems to be at the back of the Yankees list.Fun Fact: Wedge was part of a Wichita State team that won the 1989 College World Series.MORE: Hensley MeulensThe Giants bench coach since 2010, Meulens is one of the more intriguing Minnesota Vikings Jersey names being considered. A seven-year major league vet, he spent five of those seasons with the Yankees. A light-hitting utility man, Meulens doesnt have experience managing at the major league level, but he was in charge of the Netherlands team during the 2013 World Baseball Cla sic.A native of Curacao, Meulens has a strong relationship with New York shortstop Didi Gregorius. The coach is also praised for his communication skills, as he can speak English, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch and Papiamento. That skillset, along with his familiarity in the Bronx, should put Meulens among the favorites for the job.Fun Fact: Meulens nickname is .Aaron BooneBoone played in the majors for 12 years, but Jake Bargas Jersey he is best remembered for hitting in 2003. He played just 54 games for the Yankees, but he will always have a place in Bronx baseball history.Boone doesnt have any coaching experience he signed on with ESPN after his playing career ended in 2009 but he does come from a family rich with baseball ties. His media experience, plus his days with the Yankees, would help him in handling the New York pre s.Fun Fact: Boones Yankees career ended after he tore a knee ligament playing pick-up basketball. He was cut after the contract violation, which paved the way for Rodriguez.Chris WoodwardWoodward spent 11 years in the majors, but he only spent a spring training with the Yankees in 2008. Now the Dodgers third base coach, he also managed New Zealand during the 2016 World Baseball Cla sic.Having played with the Mets, Woodward is another candidate who knows the Greg Joseph Jersey pre sure that comes with New York baseball. Los Angeles is not exactly a tiny market, either. The Dodgers team he just helped get to the Word Series is remarkably similar to the Yankees current roster given the influx of youth.Fun Fact: Woodward once appeared in an episode of "."Carlos BeltranBeltran was the last person to interview with the Yankees after deciding to wrap up his 20-year MLB career a few weeks ago. Fresh off a World Series championship with the Astros, no candidate on this list had a more accomplished playing career.Beltran has a lot going for him as Cashman narrows his choices. Beltran spent parts of 10 seasons in New York, playing with the Mets from 2005 to 2011 and with the Yankees from 2014 to 2016. He knows the New York media well and his recent time in pinstripes gives him familiarity with the Yankees youngsters and front office. Being a proven winner and bilingual certainly helps his cause.The only piece mi sing from Beltrans resume is an analytical background, but numbers-based decisions typically come from the front office anyway.Fun Danielle Hunter Jersey Fact: Despite being a native of Puerto Rico, Beltran he considers New York his home.
