Why the Yankees Are Crowdsourcing Their Manager Vetting Process “We tried to rethink the interview process because we realized we ran the risk of hiring the candidate that interviewed the best as opposed to the candidate who was best suited to handle the manager’s job.” Epstein, who also put candidates before the news media when he became the Chicago Cubs’ president in 2011 — he hired Dale Sveum — said it could be a valuable exercise in an intense media environment. So far, each of the five people the Yankees have interviewed — the Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson, the former Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge, the San Francisco Giants hitting coach Hensley Meulens, the broadcaster and former player Aaron Boone and the Dodgers third-base coach Chris Woodward — has been placed on a conference call with the news organizations that regularly cover the team. In their search for a replacement for Joe Girardi, whose contract as manager was not renewed after last season, the Yankees are not only making little effort to hide candidates but also crowdsourcing the vetting process by parading them in front of the news media. “We were new at the jobs ourselves, so we were thinking of alternatives to the traditional interviews, and that was one of them,” said Epstein, who also put the candidates through computer simulation and other pressure-packed exercises. Epstein was just 29 years old and one year into his job as general manager of Boston when he fired Red Sox Manager Grady Little in the aftermath of the heartbreaking Game 7 loss to the Yankees in the 2003 American League Championship Series. The Yankees are parading their candidates in front of the news media, one by one.
‘Toxic Masculinity’ Has Slowed Australia’s March to Same-Sex Marriage Second, and this is true in the United States and in Australia, it used to be the case that the vast majority of gay and lesbian people were in the closet, so people were thinking about gay rights as an abstraction. But one of the things we’ve learned in the last 10 years as various countries have come to advance gay rights — and I’ve written about this — is that half of the countries in the globe that have legalized same-sex marriage have Catholic majorities or significant Catholic pluralities. It ended up being a powerful engine for gay rights because for a long time when you said to Americans "gay rights," they flashed on the gay pride parade, on men in leather and on "dykes on bikes." They flashed on people who wanted validation for what those other Americans saw as a transgressive lifestyle. What surprises you about the way the same-sex marriage debate has played out in Australia — especially considering that Australia is one of the last holdouts among English-speaking democracies to legalize it? Now, pretty much everywhere — I know this to be true in Australia without knowing much about the country — it’s a generational matter. First, too much change, too quickly, frightens people — and I don’t think this is true just of Americans.
