Minor league report. Tampa tosses a 1-hitter. Big day for Hess at Low A.

I am amazed how, 10 games into the season, some Yankees’ fans are criticizing Aaron Boone and Phillies’ fans Gabe Kapler. Some of the Phillies’ players are already ripping Kapler.

These are new rookie managers. 10 games? Really?

As far as Boone goes, I haven’t seen anything to criticize him on yet. For one thing, he can’t control the injuries that have hampered him. For another, it’s not his fault some guys haven’t performed yet (Sanchez 2 for 32 and Stanton 7 for 42 with 20 strikeouts, also the bullpen has been shaky and that was supposed to be a strength).

Give it more time. Criticizing Boone after 10 games? Really?
