Fans in the Bronx are calling for the firing of Boone in the wake of the Yankees being just 41-39 halfway into the season and in fourth place in the AL East — ahead of only the Baltimore Orioles and nine games behind the archrival Boston Red Sox Wholesale New York Mets MLB Jerseys, .
“Am I mad at what I see? Absolutely,” Steinbrenner said in a videoconference call with reporters Thursday mornin Discount MLB authentic jerseys, g. “I am aggravated, frustrated, angry, but that’s not going to push me into a knee-jerk reaction to get rid of somebody that I believe the players respect, want to play for, want to win for and, overall, has done a good job keeping that clubhouse together through these difficult three mont Cheap Stitched MLB authentic jerseys, hs.”
Steinbrenner used words like “aggravating” and “maddening” to describe the Yankees’ subpar season but threw his support behind not only Boone but also general manager Brian Cashman and the entire coaching staff. And while Boone might be the oddsmakers’ favorite pick for the first MLB manager to be fired this year, Steinbrenner made it clear that is unlikely to happen under his watch, where “changes have to be made for more than just the sake of making changes.”
“We’re responsible. We’re in charge. We all can share the blame,” Steinbrenner said in reference to his analytics team, front office and coaching staff. “But make no mistake about it. In my opinion, the majority of the responsibility lies with the players. They’re the ones on the field.
“They need to fix the problem because everyone, including our fan base, rightfully so, has had enough. … We all can share the blame, but the majority of the blame lies with them.”

Fans believe that George Steinbrenner, who infamously fired Hall of Famer Yogi Berra 16 games into the 1985 season, would have very little tolerance for the current underperforming club.
