Aaron Boone said he went to Chance Adams instead of Aroldis Chapman because Chapman was only coming in if they had a lede. Boone said Chapman was the only one available to close because Tommy Kahnle has been dealing with wrist tendonitis for a couple of days.
Aaron Boone explains why he went to Chance Adams in the 9th after a tough 12-11 loss for the Yankees.
I really want to hear Aaron Boone’s explanation for bringing in Chance Adams. Like I actually can’t wait.
Tommy Kahnle was not available tonight because he is dealing with wrist tendinitis, Aaron Boone said. He expects him to be available tomorrow. #Yankees
If the Yankees lose game 7 of the ALCS in Houston, remember this game and how indifferently Aaron Boone managed it.
This is the only time I'm gonna say this.
Aaron Boone is a fucking idiot...
Aaron Boone sat & watched Cortes, Cessa, Gearin, Lasagna, and Dull let up 10 runs so he could save his top guns in Ottavino, Britton, etc.
He’s now used both Ottavino & Britton. The amount of times he bites himself in the ass with this same strategy is some funny shit, man.
Joe Girardi, or any competent manager, would never send in an absolute bum from bullpen to pitch the 9th of a tied game. ESPECIALLY not late in the season when they’re battling for home field advantage in the playoffs. What is Aaron Boone thinking.
Aaron Boone said he didn’t use Tommy Kahnle because he has wrist tendinitis, but expects him to pitch tomorrow.
Boone can’t manage a bullpen, but he can’t predict the future, knowing the wrist tendinitis will be gone in about 22-23 hours.
This was brutal. Unacceptable. Aaron Boone got them here with help from Cortes - Cessa & Otto. #Yankees
Aaron Boone is a disastrous in game manager. A complete train wreck @yankees
If I never saw adam Gase or Aaron Boone in NYC ever agian, my soul would finally rest.
Message to Aaron Boone: if Yankees and Astros wind up with same record after 162, Astros will have home field advantage due to tiebreaker. And THAT fact may decide AL playoffs. So you HAVE to take these Sept games seriously and try to win every game. DON'T put in lousy pitchers!
Ben Heller just came off the IL after Tommy John Surgery. He hasn’t pitched in the Big Leagues since 2017. If you think Aaron Boone is having him make his first appearance in a tie game in the 9th inning, then you clearly don’t know anything about baseball. https://t.co/MJqtbrlFNl
Every now and then Aaron Boone tries his very best to lose a game. Tonight he had to work a little harder than he would’ve liked, but he was successful
The Yankees can’t lose a game to the tigers there, who scored 12 runs with the worst offense in the MLB because Aaron Boone felt like it didn’t matter punting with his AAA relievers
That’s true but Joe is like Luke Walton and Aaron Boone. Disgrace to their dads. Kyle Shanahan approaching this territory too
@alexboba @jcyankeefan @Yankees
Doubt there is one long or mop up guy between them. They’re all Tomato Cans. Why this game was pissed away is beyond me. We’re playing for a ring. Every game counts in the loss column. Thank you Aaron Boone. #Yankees #NYY #PinstripePride
“Even twelve year old kids would manage better than Aaron Boone and other management. Even kids know you want your best players in there. Isn’t that how it works in elementary school gym class? They line up and pick the best players. They don’t pick losers.”
Aaron Boone is the biggest disgrace of a manager in the MLB....pulling out a good pitcher for 2 shitty ones only to end up losing to the worst team in the MLB...good job Boone....your IQ is lower than the president
Has Aaron Boone been fired yet?
Aaron Boone wanted to remind us why we hated him last year and he did a good job #yankees
Y’all know the pitchers pitched this game not Aaron Boone. You would think they would get the job done vs the worst team in the AL but they didn’t.
Win the next two games
My fingers are crossed at Yes post game show during the Manager's report that Aaron Boone announces that the Yankees are going the same route with Nestor Cortes jr,Luis Cessa & Jonathan Loaisiga as the Jets did with kicker Kaare Vedvik😡
Tommy Kahnle didn't pitch tonight because of tendinitis in his wrist though Aaron Boone expects him to be available tomorrow.
In comparison to bulldog Astros, you have apparent nonchalant attitude of Aaron Boone now that Division is wrapped up. It's like it's not exceedingly important for him that team ends up with top AL and MLB record. Is he resting the pitchers for playoffs? Is that the strategy?
