3. Aaron Boone
It pains me to say this as a Red Sox fan, but Boone might actually be a good fit for the job. His name has been floated out there as the Yankees might be ready to move on from him, especially if the team finishes in last place this year.
While I haven’t noticed anything special about Boone’s tactics, he must be doing something right for the Yankees to have a winning record and keep making the playoffs under his watch.
He also has the right temperament for Boston, as he’s extremely laid back and doesn’t get fazed. That type of approach would serve him well in a city like Boston, where the fans and media are relentless and unforgiving.
With all the roster turnover and off-the-field turmoil that has been the hallmark of Bloom’s tenure, Boone would at least be a known, proven commodity. He’s never won a World Series before, either, so he’s still hungry.
If Boone takes this team all the way, fans may finally forgive him for the 2003 ALCS.
