Babe, Bucky, Buckner, Boone.
Aaron Boone is a big part of New York Yankees history. Prior to becoming the head coach of baseball’s greatest franchise, Aaron Boone was best known for Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series (ALCS), where he hit a walk-off home run in the 11th inning, off of Tim Wakefield, which gave the New York Yankees a 6–5 victory over the Boston Red Sox, thus prolonging the Curse of the Bambino.
However, it seems like a new curse is haunting Aaron Boone as the Yankees head coach. It’s not this win/loss record is terrible. According to Sportd Illustrated, Boone has compiled a 328-218 record since taking over the Yankees as a first-time manager in 2018. His .601 regular season winning percentage is seventh all-time among managers with at least 450 games and 10th among those with at least 315.
However, with Aaron Boone steering the ship, the New York Yankees have never made it past the ALCS. While some franchises may see it as an accomplishment even making the playoffs, Yankees fans and brass expect a World Series win every year. And thus far, Aaron Boone has not delivered.
The question is now, will Aaron Boone get another chance? Watch below how to see how players and media personalities feel about Boone’s future in pinstripes.
