The fact that New York Yankees‘ manager Aaron Boone hasn’t been able to win the World Series yet, or the ALDS Game 2 fiasco involving Deivi Garcia and J.A. Happ, have certainly turned some people against him. However, the Bombers’ general manager Brian Cashman remains on Boone’s side.
The GM offered his support to his manager once again in his latest public appearance. He remains confident that Boone is the man that will help the New York Yankees get their elusive 28th World Series trophy.
â€œIâ€™ve had three managers,â€ the Yankeesâ€™ general manager said, on the Fox News Channelâ€™s â€œFox & Friends,â€ while rappelling down the Landmark Building in Stamford, Conn alongside Boone and FNCâ€™s Will Cain. â€œTen (years) with Joe Torre, 10 with (Joe) Girardi and hopefully 10 more with Boone.â€ Here is the New York Post link of the story.
The Yankees’ long-tenured recent managers
Torre’s stint was very successful, as he was the primary manager in the Yankees’ dynasty of the late 90s. Girardi then came along and won the 2009 Fall Classic. Boone took over the position before the 2018 season, after the painful elimination in the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros.
The Yankees exercised the team option on their original three-year agreement with Boone. The former Yankee third baseman has accumulated, to this point, a 236-148 managerial record in his three years in charge.
While some of his decisions have been questionable (bullpen management in the 2018 postseason, the mentioned Happ situation in 2020) he has managed to keep the Yankees competitive and is seen with good eyes in the front office.
The Yankees are expected to be contenders once again in 2021 in a very tough AL East division. Boone will enter next season with excellent support from Cashman, who seemingly wants his stay with the Bombers to be a long one.
