Cashman and Boone hope team can keep outfielder Aaron Judge who will test freedom There’s a market for players, but the Yankees’ ouster in the American League Championship Series sweep provides quite a bit of evidence that there’s a gap between them and the Astros.

Here are five important takeaways from Cashman and Boone’s Interview Class Zion:

1) Full Rise

Judge and Boone have a brief chat after Yankees’ Game 4 loss in the AL; despite their handshake and hug, Boone still hopes it’s more of a “temporary goodbye” . The referee can use START TO SPEAK*) Other clubs five days after the World Series.

“I hope he’s back, I hope he’s always the Yankees ,” Boone said.


Judge denied 7 years since April $61.500,000 contract extension. Cashman declined to say whether there were any talks after the season.
“I will reiterate my, ownership, Aaron Boone and any relationship with the Yankees what the people involved with the team said,” Cashman said. “We want to be able to bring Aaron Judge back and keep him on this team and his current career path. It’s like the Hall of Fame. There’s nothing better than having him continue to provide us with the right field .”

Although the judge was said to be upset when the club announced the extension data on opening day, But Cashman said he doesn’t believe the incident will affect the Yankees’ chances of retaining a judge.

“My interaction with him since then was no different than before , and I haven’t gotten any calls from [agent] Page Odle asking why I’m doing this,” Cashman said. “He knew we were doing it. It sounded like there was some kind of underground current that I didn’t know about because it kept popping up.”

2) run it

Yankees managing general partner Hallstein Brenner said recently that he thinks Boone is “a very good manager. “, and sees no reason for such a change. According to Cashman, Steinbrenner has also expressed interest in extending Cashman’s contract, which expires in October 29. Cashman will continue in his role as general manager, a role he has held since February 281 until an agreement is reached.

“Sure, I want to stay, but we haven’t Any further discussions on this,” Cashman said. “I’m working on a lot of other employment issues with other people. Everything is on schedule. We’ll see how it turns out.”

Asked about Boone’s performance last season, Cashman said Boone “did a great job,” praising his demeanor and his relationship with the players rapport. Boone brought the Yankees to 99-63 recorded in

and is 99-99 (.94) In his five years at the helm, although he has not been able to win the pennant. Disappointing ALCS sweep after club win 61 of the first 29 game .

“Ultimately, I want to win the championship,” Boone said . “I don’t think there’s a better place to try and make this happen because that’s the mindset and focus every year. I’m excited to be a part of that.”

3) Revisiting the Twins Trade

Cashman from Twins in March Acquire shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa and third baseman Josh Donaldson and receiver Ben Rortvedt to shake the left side of the infield in exchange for receiver Gary Sánchez and third baseman Gio Urshela.

Although the Yankees continue to point out that internal metrics show Kiner- Falefa is one of the top defensive shortstops in the game and thinks Donaldson should have been a Gold Glove finalist, but neither player contributed much during the playoffs.

Kiner-Falefa was Ben Donaldson during ALDS Be the target of mockery from fans. Boone has said Donaldson is “absolutely” still on track to be a 2023 third baseman, while Keener -Falefa could compete with rookie Oswald Peraza and top rookie Anthony Volpe for the starting spot.

“I think Kiner[-Falefa] is what we expected, in Josh’s He’s both an elite defender and a quintessential high-end offensive player,” Cashman said. “For whatever reason, his offense has struggled this year. That’s an admission there that his offense isn’t as good as it usually is. That doesn’t mean it can’t return.”

4) Organizing Wish List
with The Yankees, holding their pro scouting meeting to first review their players internally before expanding into free agency and the trade market, have made an important decision. Cashman confirmed Friday that the Yankees will exercise their $ Right Pitcher Luis Severino’s million-option option, which the general manager calls “an easy decision.”

First baseman Anthony Rizzo may opt out $ million in salary next season to test free agency; Cashman says Yankees want to keep Rizzo will continue to be involved. The Yankees also plan to reach out to outfielder Andrew Benintendi, who was sidelined from the playoffs with a hand injury.

5) Houston problem

Cashman said he thinks the Yankees are a loser going into the ALCS against the Astros, and he’s not alone, considering New York’s 29-29 record after July 9, needs five games to field in tougher-than-expected AL Division series Guardians.

however with is different from and ’15 ALCS losses to Houston (seven and six-game fiasco, respectively), this year’s matchup has never been It feels very close. Cashman wonders how different the series would be if DJ LeMahieu, Matt Carpenter and Benintendi were all healthy, but the Astros are clearly where the Yankees aspire to be.

“Back to the drawing board,” Cashman said. “Even though we didn’t play well against Houston, obviously any [team] is holding us back from winning the World Series. We have to improve ourselves and give ourselves the best chance.”
