The 2013 Yankees played over their heads and were able to win 85 games. The 2021 Yankees with all the talent they have on their roster have had their worst start in 30 years.
Joe Girardi, still pissed Cashman let him go. That 2013 team had a regular lineup of Lyle Overbay, a washed up Vernon Wells, Ben Francisco, Stephen Drew.
Never understood the Girardi hate by many Yankee fans. People hated this guy just as much as Knicks fans hate Dolan, yet he was able to help lead the Yankees to a title and through a rebuild period. His decisions at times were questionable and his character wasn't as charming as Joe Torre's was, but he is a far superior manager than Aaron Boone. Since 2019 the Yankees have regressed under Boone. Guys like Sanchez, Gleyber, Stanton and Judge have gotten worse. Boone reminds me of Eric Mangini; he has zero personality and charisma.
I even think he was a superior manager than Torre. Ya he would butt heads with his players but he brought out the best in them and would defend his players to if it meant him being thrown out of a game, or going after the media, he would be out there going after the opposing pitcher willing to get fined and ejected. He won NL manager of the year with the Marlins, and will win with the Phillies. Boone
is a good guy but not a manager.
NY fans want a nose to the grind stone type of coach who will call it like it is and bring out the best in his players,I have that confidence with Thibs and Joe Judge, Boone is just a puppet to the Yankees analytics team.
