4 decisions Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner had to make

The New York Yankees are now officially out of the competition for a place in the MLB playoffs – for the first time since 2016 – and it is expected that the hard work will begin in the team’s offices.

“We have a frank conversation with each other. This year is clearly unacceptable,” the owner of the organization, Hal Steinbrenner, said weeks ago and after removing this position should be radicalized.

An in-depth evaluation of every aspect of the team should come in the coming days and will certainly have consequences for the formation of the group for the upcoming Major League season. These are the most important decisions you will ever have to make.

Shohei Ohtani’s surgery will keep him away from the Yankees, but the Bronx still need to add a star and Juan Soto is ideal. He can take over left field defense, is a left-handed hitter with contact and power, and his acquisition will boost team morale. This should be a priority in the winter.

Under pressure from Steinbrenner, New York has already taken significant steps in this direction, with the ownership of Anthony Volpe at shortstop and the promotion of the team’s top prospects such as Everson Pereira, Jasson Domínguez, Austin Wells and Oswald Peraza. They may have to leave them all on the roster in 2024 and call up the pledges that have been placed.

A team legend like CC Sabathia is one of the voices raised to request that they keep Luis Severino, who will be a free agent after a disappointing season. But the best thing is to let him go, the same as Frankie Montas, and find a way to get Domingo Germán out.

The team’s fans are calling for the departure of general manager Brian Cashman and it’s no secret that Aaron Boone’s continuation on the bench is in doubt. In the Bronx they will have to make significant internal changes, but the departure of both will provide stability to the group.
