    Call up the Orioles and offer them Clint Frazier, Miguel Andujar and either Dellin Betances or Luis Cessa. That should do it.

    Too bad they had to throw in Bryan Mitchell. I thought he had David Phelp potential, at the worst.

    Holy Crap. (More to come as the news gets more clear.)

    What I Took Away From The Boone Presser

    Posted by on December 8th, 2017 · Comments (2)

    One thing above all else stood out to me. And, I wasn’t the only one to note it:

    Boone … conceded that he was at his son’s football game when general manager Brian Cashman called to ask if he wanted to interview for the job.

    THIS, to me, speaks VOLUMES on what went down here.

    Boone didn’t throw his hat in the ring. Cashman asked him to do it. My guess is that Cash has been watching Boone on ESPN for years and building a big chubby for him. On the flip side, Boone was probably watching layoff after layoff at ESPN and thought “Here’s a possible landing spot for me. Even if I fail, I’m going to get paid for the next three years.”

    This whole thing is going to go up in flames, mark my words.

    The other thing I took away from the presser is that Aaron Boone does not give off a commanding vibe. Hell, for a guy whose media-ability was supposed to be a strength, he seems like he was out of his league speaking at the presser.

    Maybe I am wrong here? Time will tell. But, I sincerely feel that this was a mistake. Of course, it will never stick on Cashman – it never does.

    Aaron Boone, Carlos Beltran, Hensley Meulens, Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge and Chris Woodward.

    If it’s Wedge, Cashman has really lost his mind.

    I would go with Meulens (from this group). If that happens, Thomson probably walks. And, so be it.

    Some think Beltran, being last interviewed before they announced no more interviews, is the guy.
    Me? I think the New York press will eat him alive.
