The Yankees’ failure makes heads turn: Will they change managers? Boone is under contract with the Bronx through 2024, despite the Yankees missing the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
First, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone admitted he didn’t manage the team as they missed the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
The Bronx team was officially eliminated from the postseason this Sunday, and the manager said he knows his future is uncertain, even though he is under contract until next season and has an option to extend it until 2025. On Monday, the Yankees have a miserable 78-77, confirming the elimination of the team. But that’s not all, the team entered Monday with a .503 hitting percentage, Boone’s worst in Boone’s six seasons as the Bombers’ manager and his worst since 1992 when he hit .469. “No, I’m not worried about it. It’s out of my hands. I’m perfectly happy with who I am and the things I can control,” Boone told reporters Monday when asked about his future. I know you have the biggest belt in the league. You must know that too” However, reports within the team indicate that general manager Brian Cashman does not plan to fire Boone, so that the end of the relationship should be determined within the Steinbrenner family.
With that oxygen, Boone acts as if his job is safe for the next season and looks for ways to improve the efficiency of the team. “The way I see it, my job is to do everything I can to take advantage of the offseason and be ready to put myself in a better position and compete for a championship. That’s the goal and until it’s taken away from me, that’s my goal, said Boone.
Yankees steep decline Prior to that season, the Yankees had made the playoffs every year under Boone. Last year they even made it to the American League Championship Series where they were swept by the Houston Astros. In fact, they’ve reached this stage three times since 2017, twice under Boone. But the Yankees haven’t played in the World Series since they last won it in 2009, a long time for MLB’s most media-savvy team.
If you have to next year, I hope to speak in Spanish” said manager of the Yankees Aaron Boone in nuus idioma before saying goodbye to the Spanish press for which he dedicated almost 40 minutes of exclusive. On that note, Boone was questioned by the media about his team’s performance in 2023: “I think that’s part of the conversations we have at the organizational level.
I take a step back and evaluate where I want to go in certain situations and where to make changes. Hopefully that’s consistent with us being in a better place,” he explained. Meanwhile, Park team manager Aaron Judge said he plans to take on a much more prominent role as team manager and wants to get the team back to where it was before this season.
“It doesn’t happen overnight,” the judge said. “So we have to work, especially after the season. We have a lot to do, a lot of things to change and a lot of things that are going on here that need to be fixed.”
