Just-Retired Beltran Interviews To Become Yankees Manager

Just-Retired Beltran Interviews To Become Yankees Manager

Carlos Beltran has also been added to the mix, bringing the total to six.

Carlos Beltran was still in an Astros uniform when he first mentioned it.

So far, general manager Brian Cashman and the rest of the Yankees' brass has already interviewed bench coach Rob Thomson, former Yankees infielder Aaron Boone, former Indians and Mariners manager Eric Wedge, San Francisco Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens and Los Angeles Dodgers' third base coach Chris Woodward.

"I would not discount anything; you're talking about the New York Yankees".

It certainly would be an interesting hire, given Beltran's age and lack of experience. He retired Sunday after 20 years in the league, the most recent with the World Series champion Astros.

"We discussed strategies", he said. I think it's going to be fun, me being able to get this job and work with all these younger guys, and I think the passion that I have for the game, the way that I study for the game. Experience as a manager, I don't have that. The Yankees do not have a set timetable to name Joe Girardi's successor, and they may add more interviews to that list.

Hal Steinbrenner said at the owner's meetings that the Yankees planned to interview "less than 10" candidates before having 2-3 finalists come to Tampa to meet with Steinbrenner and his family.

"It's been a good interview", Beltran said. "But the fact that I got the call to be interviewed - this is something you can not turn away from". "I personally felt that when I retired from baseball that I was going to be able to spend a little time with the family, but this is something you can not turn away from".

Before interviewing, Beltran spoke to ex-Mets GM Omar Minaya, asking what types of questions he should expect. Despite working under several managers, Beltran's Mets connection remained strong: When asked about a skipper who had a big influence on him, he named former Mets manager Terry Collins.

"I thought that I was going to be able to spend a little time with the family, but the fact that I got the call to be interviewed, this is something that you can not turn away from it, because these type of opportunities, especially the one with the Yankees, they don't come very often".

"It was important for me to do, " Beltran said of sharing the knowledge gained during three decades as a professional.

"All, there are zero excuses for what I said earlier", he wrote on his Twitter feed. "There's no doubt about that. I would love that opportunity, for sure". "I would love to give back to the game".
