Hal Steinbrenner seems inclined to keep Aaron Boone, sources say

October 12, 2021 01:21PM
Though the wait continues within the Yankees' organization for owner Hal Steinbrenner to dictate the direction of the team in a fluid situation, he seems inclined to keep Aaron Boone as manager, industry sources told ESPN's Buster Olney.

"He likes [Boone], and I don't think he blames him for what happened," one source said.

During a season generally viewed as a disappointment, Steinbrenner cited underachieving player performance as the primary reason for the team's struggles. There also has been heavy social media criticism of Boone from some Yankees fans.

But at the moment, Boone does not have a contract for the 2022 season. Some within the franchise privately complain about Boone, with the common refrains being that he should more bluntly assess team performance to the media when the Yankees play poorly, and that his bullpen choices too often don't work out.
