• What I Took Away From The Boone Presser

    Posted by on December 8th, 2017 · Comments (3)

    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.

      It might be a big mistake.
      It also might work out just fine.
      No way to know yet. Way too early.

      It’s looking like all he’ll need to do is write a lineup card.

      I’m afraid that Boone is a puppet hire who Cashman & his slide rule cronies want to control from upstairs. And someone who will smile at the press conferences and give all the beat writers the company line quotes.

      Meulens should have been the guy. With the disconnect between Sanchez and Girardi, you would think they would have gone for a manager who relates to the players better, and given that Meulens speaks five languages, I thought that would have made him the favorite.
