One of Aaron Boone’s top priorities when he became Yankees manager was to get to know Gary Sanchez, who was benched briefly by Joe Girardi last season. Sanchez said he and Boone met Friday night, and the catcher indicated the meeting went well and is confident the two will have a strong working relationship — and he insisted he had no issues with Girardi. “I always got along with Joe,” Sanchez said through an interpreter Saturday. “I appreciate everything Joe did for me.” And he said he had gotten over the benching in August. “I left that in the past,” Sanchez said after signing autographs at All Star Collectibles in Wayne, N.J. “I never took anything he did personally and knew he was trying to make me a better player.” Sanchez is confident he’ll work well with Boone, who has never coached or managed.
