The New York Yankees made it to the ALCS but it was still not a good season for them after their tumble in the second half of the regular season and not even getting to the World Series, let alone winning it.
There is a lot of blame to go around, but one of the biggest people to blame is their manager Aaron Boone. Boone could easily be fired in the coming days or weeks after another disappointing end to the Yankees season.
If he is let go, here are five potential managerial replacements for Aaron Boone.
Yankees: 5 potential replacements for Aaron Boone
1) Joe Girardi
Wouldn’t it be prophetic if the Yankees replaced Aaron Boone with the guy that Boone replaced himself?
Girardi is no longer managing the Phillies after they fired him during the middle of this season. His bench coach and former Yankees coach Rob Thomson has since led them to their first World Series berth since 2009, when the Yankees defeated the Phillies.
That’s not something that looks good on Girardi but he is, undoubtedly, better than Boone. He brings managerial experience and a familiarity to the Yankees, especially if they fire Boone and don’t change their front office.
The Yankees really need somebody who has some experience managing and, perhaps, Girardi would be the right guy to return.
