Aaron Boone Returning for 2023

By Paul Semendinger

October 26., 2022


The Yankees, as tone deaf as Aaron Boone was to think that showing the 2004 Yankees' collapse would motivate his club , already have indicated that Aaron Boone will be returning to manage the club in 2023.

For the Yankees, as I see it, it seems clear, winning a World Series is not the ultimate goal.

Boone's record in the post season is 14-17. Over a five year career, he has shown no real growth as the mistakes he made as a rookie manager were present throughout the postseason this year as well.

In this year's postseason, Boone couldn't figure out who his shortstop was. He also had no clue who his leadoff hitter was. He made bad pitching decisions one after the next. Boone's teams have not shown much hustle. A supposed great communicator, he did not communicate well with numerous players in the postseason as reported through various outlets. A manager who would supposedly help the young players develop, he showed an extreme reluctance to play his young talent, for years, and no young position player has made any growth under his leadership.

Aaron Boone might be a great guy. He might be a lot of fun to be with. But as a manger, he has not been one who has been able to get the Yankees to the World Series. In addition, the team's performance this year through most of the second half was a disaster. Boone throughout had no answers.

It looks like fans will get another year, at least, of this.

As far as I am concerned, this is a bad look for the Yankees. It shows that they do not value winning. As an article that will be published in the coming days shows, no Yankees manager has ever had as long as Boone has had to deliver a championship.

If one hears, "The Yankees are all about championships," don't believe it. I'd also recommend not buyingany Yankees championship merchandise until the win World Series #28. They've made a lot of money off #27. It is not something they should be marketing. When the Yankees won those 27 championships, especially the ones since 1996, there was a very specific and stated goal - to win it all. It is clear that that is no longer the case.

The Yankees continue to reward a long stretch of postseason failure.

According to the linked NY Post article above, Hal Steinbrenner stated of Boone, "I believe he is a very good manager." I'm not sure what games Mr. Steinbrenner is watching, because even among the most loyal Yankees supporters, Boone's ability to manage games has always been in question.

More to come...

I'll have a lot more to say tomorrow morning, but I think it's critical to note who announced Boone's return...hint, it wasn't the GM.

Technically, there isn't a GM right now; it's assumed Cashman will be back, but what if discussions breakdown (after all, it was Yogi who said, "It ain't over 'til it's over")? Hal has already announced that Boone will be back without allowing the GM to have a public say.

As CP said yesterday, the Yankees' ownership has Mara/Giants vibes right now...

Well said Andy.

We see it all the time. A father builds his wealth and fortune using smarts, grit, toughness and determination. Then as he ages, he turns it over to his kids. Many times, see Barney's Dept. Store, the kids are not qualified to run the business anywhere but down. This is what we see with Steinbrenner. Lucky enough to be born into wealth, but does not have the father's grit and toughness to succeed. Its more common then you would imagine.

Mariano has his opinion.

In what appeared to be a rather underwhelming hire, the Yankees found their man on this day. Joe Torre, who had a career 894-1003 record in 14 years as a manager, was handed the reigns of a team with championship aspirations. Needless to say, as Torre had one postseason appearance on his resume, his hiring was not exactly greeted with enthusiasm.

Boone is certainly subject to criticism and one might wonder whether Joe Maddon might have been standing with phone in. hand

but one might also wonder whether the owner might want Cashman and Boone to break through in the upcoming season and whether he's willing to pay for the talent necessary.

obviously, you're confusing the current ownership/senior management

with the type of brain-dead nonsense and sobriety-deprived emotional infantilism of the George years
