    If Yankees fire Boone who should be the replacement?

    6 manager options with Yankees ties if Brian Cashman does the unexpected and fires Aaron Boone
    Updated 10:00 AM; Today 10:00 AM
    By Joe Giglio | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

    It might be too early to fire Aaron Boone, but itís certainly not too early to think about the next Yankees manager.

    Thatís what happens when a team with a payroll of more than $200M gets off to a 5-10 start. Itís what happens when mediocre baseball persists since the start of the 2020 season. Itís what happens when the tide turns for a manager that doesnít have rings to stand on, like Joe Torre did during a tough start in 2005.

    Buck would be my first choice and seems the obvious pick. I also think Phil Nevin might not be a bad pick.

    My choice would only be showalter but I doubt cashman would hire him. He is not the kind of manager cashman wants .

    I vote our very own Posada. He knows everything. He's fair in his assessments of all players. He would Stand fast by his rules and never back peddle.

    Oh. He would have to go to the games. Never mind.

    How bout Tony Pena?
    David Cone?
    Asmus?

    Yo! I hope you are well.

    Leo would be great but owning a cannabis business, I would worry the entire team would be even less motivated and fat.

    If nothing else he'd get them hitting again... I still think they need to get Kratz back into coaching and groom him as a manager. Actually get him some experience as a coach before you just hand over the reins

    Kratz is an interesting thought. He is definitely cut from a cloth I like.
    A catcher who bounced around that much has been able to play under a ton of managers and learn different methods and philosophies.
    That's a very good thing.

    I don't know who the next manager would be, but if they fire Cashman and Boone, then the next hitting coach should be someone in the Bernie Williams, Wade Boggs mode that knows how to work the strike zone and situational hit.

    Thatís a great idea but that type of hitting doesnít fit in well with the approach that is used by the analytics department

    I donít want buck heís ole and played out imo. Beltran could be a good possibility BUT wasnít he on the team that cheated us in the ALCS and the astros got their World Series that year ? Might not sit well with our players.
