“So I know between him and (general manager) Brian (Cashman) and the front office they’re working overtime right now to try and figure out how to improve our team in any way. It’s that time of year and we’re the Yankees, so we’re going to be working hard at it.”

NEW YORK — Part of the reason Yankees manager Aaron Boone got his job this offseason was because he’s a smooth communicator and good at talking on the fly. It comes naturally to him, but it was also a skill honed over seven years as an ESPN baseball analyst.

“Well, Hal reminds me of the same thing all the time,” Boone said after another Yankees starting pitcher faltered in a 5-4 loss to the Nationals at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday.
