New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone wears a mask as he stands in the dugout during the third inning in Game 4 of a baseball American League Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays, Thursday, Oct. 8, 2020, in San Diego. As of the AL Division Series, however, the MI native said the sides hasn't had talks about bringing him back yet.

Catcher Gary Sánchez's job could be in danger after a third straight down season, but Gleyber Torres' hold on shortstop is solid despite shaky defense. This offseason, do the Yanks move out pieces who have had NY success to improve defense up the middle, add more lefty hitting and provide financial wiggle room to deepen the pitching staff? "I want to sincerely apologize to the people of New York and to the fans of the New York Yankees everywhere for the performance of the Yankee team in the World Series", Steinbrenner said, at the time.

NY had its second straight injury-filled season but was mostly healthy for the postseason. He was also an All-Star and fourth-place MVP finisher.

Still, they swept Cleveland in the first round before getting eliminated by the Rays. Told for years they couldn't win the big one, they did.

Boone said, "You realize how close you are to being a championship team".

"So they proved in the marathon of 60 games they were better, and they proved in the sprint of the division series that they were better". I would say, that should have been the decision this year. "That's obviously a big reason that we're home".

Third baseman Gio Urshela did not need surgery for a bone spur in his right elbow.

He wouldn't rule out adding to the rotation this offseason but believes there is a "foundation" of talent, especially with the potential return of Severino by midseason from Tommy John surgery. Sánchez hit.147 during the pandemic-shortened season and while his defense has improved, it remains below average.

We are going to see. "I know that people do not agree with me on that, but I see the season as a whole ". We all know how shut and able to it we're. I think we had a championship caliber team.

Aaron Boone is not a puppet. García gave up a solo homer and Happ a pair of two-run drives in an 7-5 loss. After the 7-5 loss, Happ said he would have been more comfortable starting.

"I think [everybody in] that room understands that ultimately I'm writing out the lineup and I'm making these decisions".

Cashman denied decisions are commanded from above. "None of that's true. Some of them we've navigated past, other ones we haven't, and that's just the way the October postseason works".

Cashman is comfortable with the decisions that were made.

"Obviously, I've known Brian forever, and the way he goes about doing things is in a very objective way", Steinbrenner said. "You get dissected, finger points and stuff like that".
