New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone needs to have a strong September
The 2023 season is going to go down for the New York Yankees as one where anything that could go wrong, did go wrong.
They have been hit with injuries, and they had an eight-game losing streak in August that sealed their postseason chances and they are likely going to finish in last place in the AL East. The only thing they have to look forward to in September is if Gerrit Cole can stay in the Cy Young conversation despite being on a last-place team.
When they signed Aaron Judge to a big contract last offseason, this was not what they planned on happening. Boone has made plenty of questionable decisions all season long and frustration was showing in his press conferences over the last month and a half.
Would the Yankees actually move on from Boone and GM Brian Cashman? Certainly, there are a lot of fans who think the move needs to happen. Usually when the Yankees have a season where they miss the playoffs, they go shopping in free agency, but it feels like this team needs a lot more than that going forward.
A new voice is needed in the dugout and unless Boone and the Yankees close out the season by playing spoiler for a lot of teams, his return in 2024 is certainly up in the air.
