    I don't blame Boone nor did I give him any credit. It's the players. He went from having 100 wins seasons to having an under .500 record these last 200 games. Even with a good analytics team the players need to perform. Or did they give Boone more managing power these last 200 games and this it the result? I doubt it because from what I've heard the analytics people think they're right and this is the way
    Rotten at every level. The coaching sucks, stupid mistakes, Boone with the most ridiculous optimism ever and the front office sucks. It all sucks

    The optimism is what they wanted from him. They didn't like Joe Girardi's negativity at times, especially when he criticized Gary Sanchez in Aug. 2017 in Cleveland but man they would have hated Terry Collins who had way more reasons to give criticism when he managed the Mets.
    I get it and I think it’s needed to an extent over 162, but come on…it’s lying through his teeth at points. Jomboy straight up asked him if he laughs at the stuff he says

    I'm sure he internally thinks some of the things he's saying sound odd or absurd. At this point he's the buffer between the dugout and the front office and seems willing to take the hits for now.

    last time they were .500 this late was 1995. don't think they're capable of going 19-5 in a 24-game span which would take them to 79-65.

    Halfway thru August Mike only needs 16 more HR to reach that magical 20 number.
    Plus, he's above the Mendoza line.

    All accurate, except for the historically bad part. 1990 is historically bad. It's historically bad in the context of what the seasons have looked like since 1992 but not historically bad unless they somehow lose at least 30 of their final 42 games.

    Well, I guess historically bad is relative and so would be correct.....buuuuuut.  boo-hoo for Yankees fans.  Your team is below around .500 late in the year and people are freaking out.
    Many teams in the league are thrilled to be around .500 late in the year.

    "The haves have not a fucking clue"


    I do like rooting for them sometimes but the fan base is clearly spoiled.  
    (And, yes, I wish the team I rooted for had this track record and spoiled me like this!!)

    Right and I get that the last 30 years are as impressive as anything…not necessarily the championships but the consistency and the ability to avoid seasons like this, but I think the issue is that everyone saw this coming

    If you were telling me that Gleyber Torres would be the best hitter this year and the rest of the team would perform only half as well as the year before I would have bet that you were out to lunch.

    Mike is faltering.

    might want to shut him down so he can finish above the Mendoza line.

    After his 16 HRs in the next 14 days they can make that decision.

    Honestly, I have no idea looking at that dogshit lineup and what Shallow Hal and Mr. Hankey are paying for it how Cashman is still employed.

    2nd highest payroll behind the Mets entering the season. At least Mets were smart enough to see the writing on the wall and dumped a ton of salary at the deadline.

    100-win season, however, is still on the table.

    Oopsie, 0-3 with 3 strike outs (and a walk!!!), sub-Mendoza again for Mike.


    Also this:

    Yankees feel like 'turnaround is coming' after team meeting - ESPN

    They sure turned it around. 
    2 hits for that dogshit nearly 300Mil lineup against a stiff and 2 relievers.
    And their ace gives up a grand slam to some little leaguer who's hitting .186 that the Sox bought off the scrap heap from the Brewers.
