New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone understands that earning three ejections this spring and two within a week is only worth so much to a club looking to climb up the American League East standings.
“I don’t want to keep that pace,” Boone admitted during his latest appearance on the “Talkin’ Yanks” podcast, per John Healy of Audacy. “I will try to slow that pace. We’ll just have to see how it plays out. Hopefully, consider it at this point a small sample size.”
Boone was tossed from a game against the Cleveland Guardians last month for arguing an overturned call. On May 15, the 50-year-old was ejected for arguing the strike zone during a contest at the Toronto Blue Jays that generated headlines due to slugger Aaron Judge glancing toward either the dugout or the first base coach during an at-bat.
