Aaron Boone has a stern message for the Yankees in the midst of a slump Aaron Boone had a blunt message for his New York Yankees after another loss.

The Yankees were eliminated on Friday night after a 4-0 loss against the Toronto Blue Jays

They are 12-24 over their last 36 games, and their lead for first place in the AL East has been cut to eight games.

After the loss, Boone didn't gloat. “We should be ticked off now. We have to start playing better, plain and simple,”

Boone said. He also talked about the decline of the division's leadership. "I don't care about leadership,"

Boone replied. "Play better. we can do it. We can talk about eight, nine, seven, and 10. We have to play better. If we will play like this it does not matter anyway."

The Yankees dominated MLB and it looked like a piece of cake to clinch the AL East. They probably will, but they need to turn things around and stop the losing streak.

The Yanks have lost five straight and the best they can do against Toronto this weekend is get a split.
