​Aaron Boone's managing came into question on Monday night after a 16-1 drubbing at the hands of the Boston Red Sox. Boone failed to warm up relief pitchers in the bullpen ​during Luis Severino's dreadful Game 3 performance.


Boone was at it again on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the ALDS.


In the third inning, starter C.C. Sabathia was in trouble after plunking Andrew Benintendi. It was followed up with a Steve Pearce single, who has proven to be a "Yankee Killer" in his career. In a do-or-die game, you'd think Boone would start warming up the bullpen.


​That didn't happen.

​​J.D. Martinez would step up to the plate and hit a deep sacrifice fly to score Benintendi and give the Boston a 1-0 lead. 

​​The bleeding didn't end there, as Ian Kinsler would hit a screeching double over the head of left fielder Brett Gardner, extending their lead to 2-0. The bandages didn't work on that wound either, as Eduardo Nuñez would hit a single to left field, allowing Kinsler to score, giving them a three-spot in the third.

Boone would finally call the bullpen to warm up David Robertson and Zach Britton.


While there is still a lot of time for the Yankees to make a comeback, Boone's mismanaging of the starting pitching and bullpen put New York in an early hole.
