new York Yankees If the Bronx Bombers lose on Friday night, the fans will have to blindly blame someone else.
Why? Because manager Aaron Boone has been suspended for Friday̵7;s match san diego padres,
His one-game suspension “comes from his recent conduct toward Major League umpires, including actions following his ejection from Thursday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.”
On Thursday, Boone was ejected for the third time in the last 10 games of the Yanks.
Boone was arguing balls and strikes in the third inning, resulting in his latest ejection.
Boone is featured in the video holding up four fingers While arguing with the umpires, he felt that four calls had been missed.
Despite his anger toward umps recently, Boone won’t advocate MLB’s use of robot umpire,
“Obviously he shouldn’t have thrown about 30 pitches in that first inning,” Boone said of what he felt were missed strike calls on pitches by Yankees starter Clark Schmidt. “But, no, I’m not advocating for robo. I think these people [umpires] Do a good job for the most part and work really hard at it. When you’re playing too much, there are going to be issues from time to time, it’s as simple as that.”
On Thursday too, Boone was seen accidentally spitting in the face of the umpire.
Since his first year as a manager in 2018, he leads all of baseball in ejections with 30. His four so far this season is also the most in the league.
