Aaron Boone: “MY GUYS ARE F**KING SAVAGES IN THAT BOX AND YOU’RE HAVING A PIECE OF SH*T START TO THIS GAME. I FEEL BAD FOR YA BUT GET F**KING BETTER. THAT GUY IS A GOOD PITCHER BUT OUR GUYS ARE F**KING SAVAGES IN THAT BOX. TIGHTEN UP RIGHT NOW, OKAY? TIGHTEN THIS SH*T UP!”
It would have been your run-of-the-mill comical baseball manager tirade and ejection if not for the incredibly hot mics the YES network was picking up during the second inning of the team’s day-night double-header versus their AL East rivals.
After Brett Gardner went nuclear in the dugout on a called third strike, cameras picked up the audio of Boone chirping ‘F**king get better now Brennan, let’s f**king go! Bear down, let’s go! Really bad start!’
After the next pitch to Yankees leadoff hitter DJ LeMahieu was called a strike, appearing to be a ball on the network’s strike zone graphic, microphones then picked up LeMahieu saying ‘Brennan that’s so far outside’, with Boone then injerecting again with multiple ‘let’s f**king go!’s and ‘that’s f**king terrible!’ to which Miller responded both times to ‘I hear you Aaron! I hear you!’
When the next pitch was a called strike, that’s when Miller tossed the still-chirping Boone.
