Opinion: The Yankees missed an opportunity to move on from a manager that has not improved enough

Image
  When new leadership comes into any position it takes some time to make it your own and bring your influence to it. In the case of sports and baseball specifically, people generally say that teams take on the personality of their manager. These few ideas are why I sit here very disappointed that the Yankees decided to not only bring back Aaron Boone but did so with a ringing endorsement by Brian Cashman and a 3-4 year commitment. Going back to those ideas, when Aaron Boone was hired as the manager, he was coming in with no experience and taking over a 91-win team that overachieved the previous year. A team with young talent that just pushed the juggernaut (cheating) Houston Astros to the brink in the 2017 ALCS. A team with all those young players that stepped up in the heat of battle well before anyone expected them to. Boone was brought in and expected to build on that and bring a team that had room to go and still got close to a World Series and get them over the hump. Well, its bee

Opinion: No matter the manager, the Yankees need to figure out how to win

Keys to the Game: A.L. Wild Card 2021

Image
 

After a Thrilling Win on Sunday, the Yankees are Playoff Bound

Image
Through all the troubles and frustrations in this Yankees season, the time is finally here. Playoffs. Thanks to the first ever walk off hit in the career of Aaron Judge, the Yankees beat the Rays in Game 162 to give the Bombers a playoff berth and send them to the Wild Card Game. 

What has gotten into these New York Yankees?

  Just ten short days ago, this team looked on death’s door, dropping back-to-back games to the Cleveland Indians at home by a combined score of 22-4.   They had fallen out of a wild card spot by 1.5 games, and trailed Boston for the top spot by 2.5 games.   All of the good vibes and positivity accrued during their 13-game winning streak from August 14-27 was seemingly out the window.   They appeared headed for an early end to their season – one that began with lofty expectations of a World Series title.

Yankees final playoff push begins with weekend Fenway series

Image
  The Yankees open a season defining series Friday night against the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees are the number two Wild Card team as of this writing, holding onto their spot by one full game ahead of Toronto while sitting two games behind Boston in the loss column for the number one spot. It's not news, but after their 13-game August winning streak, the Yankees struggled mightily and gave all that progress that they made right back. It has been a mixed bag since those struggles, but they have since stabilized a little bit. It basically comes down to this: The Yankees’ next six games are against Boston and Toronto. If they win most of them, they will very likely make the playoffs. If they don’t then they’ll be watching like the rest of us. Let’s get into some news and notes. Credit: Sarah Stier/Getty Images

The state of the Yankees' infield

Image
After Monday’s improbable, come-from-behind walk-off against the Twins, Aaron Judge described the 2021 Yankees’ season as a rollercoaster, a testament most fans would wholeheartedly agree with. The undisputed favorite in the American League just three weeks ago, the Yanks are losers of 12 of their last 17 games; though they are still in possession of the second wild card spot, the surging Blue Jays have overtaken first and the Red Sox, Mariners, and Athletics are inching closer every day. Looking to right the ship, Aaron Boone has recognized one of the major issues that has plagued his club all season: the infield defense. Photo Credit: Mike Stobe/Getty Images Monday marked Gleyber Torres’ first appearance at second base since September 29, 2019, and per Boone, that will be the norm for the remainder of the season. His 18 errors at shortstop this year rank fourth in all of baseball, trailing only Bo Bichette, Javier Baez, and Fernando Tatis Jr. -- with four of those coming in the last
