I think it's clear the Aaron Boone experiment is over.

1) He's in waaaaay over his head. 
2) The coaching staff isn't doing any better.  

If this is the way the front office will continue to run this team we've got a LOT of heartache in front of us. 
 
Unfortunately, Boone and the staff aren't going anywhere. they just want to get below the salary cap.  
This organization is an embarrassment to baseball. Big money or no, they can make money off their reputation for only so long.   
Ive said it a million times- this organization needs to prioritize baseball over profits.

This team is the biggest "tease" I can ever remember...Never before do I remember so many home run or nothing ballplayers, with only 1 decent starter (currently with a tired arm), and 1 K or HR pitcher (Tanaka) and everyone else stinks. The Yankees are currently VERY far from winning another championship, but as long as management keeps telling us how close they are, signing hasbeens, or never wases, they will continue to put butts in the seats. They fooled us alright. This is the CBS ownership all over again, while disguised as owners who care about winning...The boss is dead, bring back the boss!

This team often reminded me of the 2000-2001 offseason when I was hoping and praying that Cashman would sign a big reliever or two to bolster a thin and shaky bullpen. I never quite understood why Cashman in that 2000 offseason didn't prioritize the pitching staff above all else, and I wondered the same thing in this last offseason. It seemed to me that after the 2017 season Cashman would surely sign a starter to solidify this pitching staff, especially considering that he built this team backwards by starting the build with the offense. I've never seen it done this way successfully before. Typically, a front office builds the pitching staff first, allowing the pitchers a year or two to develop before the offense comes online. The rationale for that is that pitchers take a bit longer to develop their craft than hitters do. But with this rebuilding, Cashman started with the offense and has no major-league-ready starters in the pipeline. And just like 2001 (with his mid-season signing of relievers Wohlers and Witasick), it feels like Britton and Happ are a too-little-too-late patchwork. When Cashman brought in Clemens in 1999, it felt like Cashman gave the Yankees a coat of shining armor that would produce a sense of invincibility in the Yankees. I feel that is what is lacking with these 2018 Yankees. This young team really needs that leader who provides them with a sense steadiness and reliability.

This offense is way more flawed than most fans realize or are willing to admit. We've been brainwashed to think HRs win ball games. Take a look at the Red Sox offense to see how it's done. How many 200 strikeout hitters do you see in their lineup. Then there are their starters, who are arguably the best or 2nd best bunch in all of baseball...that's how championships are won (See the Astros for the most recent example).

Stanton is playing as advertized. But, as we are seeing, he's not what we needed. Hal's cap is also killing the team and it is starting to show in all the has-beens we are signing. They aren't the answer.

Boone: You know my mama wanted me to be a Manager.

Judge: My dad wanted me to be a baseball player.

Boone: Well you're better than any player I ever had. And you're the best God damn player I ever saw. Suit up.

Bottom line is that Boone showed up with a blank resume and they thought that was really creative and hired him.  Imagine applying for a job as an Operational Manager and having no managerial experience whatsoever, there's no on the job training, and the only experience remotely related to this job was putting things in boxes for shipping.  Or being a Police Chief, with no experience in law enforcement aside from being a maintenance man at the precinct.  Well, Boone is that guy except he gets the job and we get this.

He is in  over his head. But, will Cash admit he made a mistake getting rid of Girardi.
Only with the Yankees can you take a team to one out from going to the World Series and lose your job.

We fans had to know going into the season that this year would be that OJT for Boone.  Obviously, the owners bought into the idea of a rookie manager.  I wonder how much the players bought into it and how they feel about Boone at this point...
