Yankees Podcast: It’s Never Easy with Aaron Boone

When the Yankees lead a game 3-0 after the first inning, 6-0 after the third innning and 8-0 after the fifth inning, there should be no reason to get upset, frustrated or annoyed with Aaron Boone. But the Yankees manager always finds a way.

Boone made questionable decision after questionable decision on Tuesday night against the Braves when he removed Aaron Judge in the sixth inning, didn’t allow Jordan Montgomery to pitch the seventh inning, turned to David Hale before Adam Ottavino and went to Luis Cesssa before Chad Green. Boone essentially had to do nothing other than sit back and watch his team blow out the Braves and he couldn’t even do that.
