You all were pretty positive on Aaron Boone last week; the results hardly changed from the first week we ran this. I’d imagine this week’s strong play will result in more of the same sentiment, if not better. I mean, it’s kind of hard to complain when the team is in this position:
2019 Regular Season Record: 49-28 (1st place, 4.5 games ahead of Tampa Bay)
Last Week: 6-1
Upcoming: Home vs. Blue Jays (3 games, 6/24 – 6/26), Away vs. Red Sox (2 games, 6/29 – 6/30 in London!)
Recent Aaron Boone News
- Boone understood what Clint Frazier felt after demotion.
- He gave a handful of players rest days throughout the week, including Gleyber Torres. We still haven’t seen the A-lineup quite yet, but it’s all been according to plan.
- Before Aaron Judge returned, Boone was put on the spot to address Cameron Maybin’s future with the team. Of course, Maybin wound up needing to hit the injured list soon after.
- The skipper took a moment to gloat about how good Giancarlo Stanton is after Saturday’s win:
Aaron Boone said “I hope everyone takes note” of Giancarlo Stanton’s at-bats tonight. Asked if that was a message for the fans and anyone else, Boone then smiled & said “No… I just… Sometimes we forget what a good player he is. Again, I hope they saw those at-bats.” #Yankees— Gary Phillips (@GaryHPhillips) June 23, 2019
