Question to the Yankiverse


 Why, why, WHY... didn't Aaron Boone in the tenth yesterday load the bases with walks to create a force at home with two RH batters facing Jonathan Loaisiga?

Boone is asleep at the wheel most of the time.... just another example of how bad he is!

Duque....since you asked I'll repost my question and comment from yesterday right after the game. My birthday gift of Remy Martin XO from last month which I had hoped to save for a more festive occasion prevented me from jumping off my roof. (I sincerely hope Jerry of the Red Sox is not related to the cognac family).


What a fucking dolt Boone is! One out, man on third in the bottom of the tenth. Batting is Mullins the most productive O's batter and a left-handed hitter against Loaisaga. Every other manager walks Mullins to pitch around him and set up the DP. But not Boone. Mullins hits a sacrifice fly to win it. What's worse is that the ball is hit to medium center and washed up Hicks threw a floater way wide of the plate and way late. Hicks needs to be benched for good and Boone fired after this season if not sooner. Tired of seeing the Yankees lose games because of poor managing and players like Hicks.

Boone is an imbecile?

Actually it might have made sense...let's walk through it...literally...

Mullins and Hays would have walked intentionally.

Yanks would have had to face Mancini who was 3 for 4 on the day.

Don't know what history Mancini had against Loaisaga. They might had looked at that and decided against it...

Ranger....they didn't have to walk both. Mullins could have sufficed. DP set up. If Willie Mays Hays didn't hit into DP and just made out they could have walked Mancini. Or pitched to him.
