The New York Yankees have had a tough season so far, with many fans pointing fingers at Aaron Boone as the reason for their struggles. Despite a long list of injured players and other issues with the team, Boone seems to be the primary target for criticism. Fans have been calling for his firing for some time now, citing everything from his bullpen choices to the team’s lack of offensive production. If the Yankees do decide to move on from Boone, there are several intriguing candidates out there who could potentially replace him.
One such candidate is Don Mattingly, a former Yankee who would no doubt be a popular choice among the fan base. Although he struggled to make an impact as manager of the Miami Marlins and is currently serving as a bench coach, it wouldn’t be surprising to see his name come up as a potential replacement for Boone.
Another interesting choice would be Joe Maddon. While the trend in recent managerial hires has been to go with younger candidates, there has been a recent resurgence of older, more experienced managers like Bruce Bochy. Could Maddon be next in line for a return to the manager’s office?
Finally, there’s Carlos Beltran. While he was never able to become manager of the New York Mets due to his involvement in the Houston Astros’ scandal, he’s still a former Yankee and a likable, young candidate who could quickly win over the fan base if he were to replace Boone.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether the Yankees will actually decide to move on from Boone. But if they do, they have some intriguing options to choose from.
