Over the last four years, Aaron Boone has had a successful stint as the manager of the New York Yankees.
He’s 328-128 during his four seasons and has made the playoffs in each of those years.
His contract is also up now and will be a free agent once the World Series concludes. There has been speculation as to whether or not Boone will be back as the manager of the Yankees. As of right now, he hasn’t talked to the Yankees about signing a new deal.
To go even further, Boone had a rather interesting take when it came to his job for next year.
If you ever heard Joe Torre or Joe Girardi speak after a playoff series defeat, they always sounded definite in wanting to come back; especially Girardi in 2017, who was one game away from the World Series and wanted to be back in New York for 2018.
Given these comments though, it doesn’t sound like someone who sounds certain about his job security. In fact, he sounds like someone who knows what is coming and is already accepting it.
The Yankees job is not always an easy one, and this one was Boone’s first ever time managing in the major leagues. 328 wins is a lot, as is 11 postseason wins.
But, as the old saying in New York goes, how many championships have you won for me lately? Which is none.
Some fans want Boone out. Ultimately, that decision may be up to Hal Steinbrenner and Brian Cashman, like when they wanted Girardi out after 2017.
But Boone’s quote there might be a sign that he may not be back in 2022 and the Yankees might be looking for a new manager soon.
