Yankees manager Aaron Boone sacked for fifth time this season – UnlistedNews

New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected for the fifth time this season, ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the top of the third inning of Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Home plate umpire Dan Merzel ejected Boone with an 0-1 count on Gleyber Torres after Boone complained from the dugout about a 3-1 pitch to previous hitter DJ LeMahieu, who was called a ball despite that it appeared to be well above the strike zone.

Boone became involved in a lengthy argument with Merzel and crew chief Lance Barksdale after the ejection.

Boone’s five ejections are the best coaches in the majors this season, one more than Minnesota’s Rocco Baldelli, Cincinnati’s David Bell and San Diego’s Bob Melvin. Boone led the majors with nine last season, when no other manager had more than five.

Boone was also ejected against Cleveland on April 12, against Toronto on May 15, against Cincinnati on May 21, and against Baltimore on May 25. He served a one-game suspension following the ejection against the Orioles with MLB citing his conduct toward umpires.

Boone has been ousted 31 times as manager of the Yankees, sixth among active managers behind Texas’ Bruce Bochy (80), Melvin (58), Cleveland’s Terry Francona (47), New York Mets’ Buck Showalter (36 ) and Bud Black from Colorado (35).

Bench coach Carlos Mendoza took over as coach.
