Good morning, Sports fans! Davey Mac here with a big-time Sports Report for ya! Preseason football in full swing this weekend! Devils news! Musk Vs. Zuckerberg! And more! But first!
According to sources familiar with the New York Yankee organization, Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner will retain general manager Brian Cashman after the season. But manager Aaron Boone’s future is not so certain. Sources are stating that Cashman will definitely be brought back next year. But, especially if the Yankees miss the playoffs, Boone very well could get fired.

The Yankees are just 59 and 56 this year. The team has simply underperformed. There’s no other way to look at it. But is it all Boone’s fault?

In my opinion, Brian Cashman has done an absolutely atrocious job at building this roster. There is a lack of offense…on the New York Yankees?! The Bronx Bombers?! Where are the left-handed superstars that have great success in Yankee Stadium?! Where is the killer lineup?! WHERE, Cashman?!

Quite frankly, I believe Boone is being set up to be the fall guy should the Yankees miss the MLB Postseason. Right now…they are on the outs looking in. Boone might have some responsibility…but really…Cashman is the one to blame…along with Steinbrenner himself. I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents! Now let’s get to the Scoreboard!

Fighting. Elon Musk might not fight Mark Zuckerberg at all. Earlier this week, he said he might need surgery before any fight could happen . . . and now he’s suggesting they just talk it out. Someone proposed it to him on X.

Get in the Octagon and fight, Musk! Let’s go!
