New York Yankees fans will have to blindly blame someone else if the Bronx Bombers lose on Friday night.
For what? Because manager Aaron Boone was suspended for Friday’s game against the San Diego Padres.
His one-game suspension stems from “his recent conduct toward Major League umpires, including actions following his ejection from Thursday night’s game against the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium.”
Boone was ejected for the third time in the Yanks’ last 10 games on Thursday.

Boone was arguing over balls and strikes in the third inning, which resulted in his final ejection.
The video shows Boone holding up four fingers while arguing with the referees, signaling that he felt four calls were missed.

Despite his anger at umps recently, Boone wouldn’t advocate for MLB to use robot referees.
“Obviously he shouldn’t have thrown close to 30 pitches in that first inning,” Boone said of what he thought were missed strike calls on pitches by Yankees starter Clarke Schmidt. . “But no, I’m not advocating for the robot. I think these guys [umpires] mostly doing a great job and working very hard at it. When you play a lot, there will be problems from time to time, simple as that.”

Boone appeared to accidentally spit in the face of a referee on Thursday as well.
Since his first year as manager in 2018, he leads all of baseball in ejections with 30. His four so far this season are also the most in the league.
