The New York Yankees finished their 2023 season with a bad taste in their mouths. Finishing 4th in the AL East with a record of 82-80 and missing the postseason, it's safe to say this is unfamiliar territory for the Yankees.


After three days of meeting with the rest of the front office down in Tampa, Hal Steinbrenner made a public appearance.

 

The associated press writes, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner says the team might make personnel changes after three days of meetings last week that followed New York's worst season in three decades.


"We're going to make some changes. Some may be more subtle than others," Steinbrenner said Wednesday during Sportico's Invest in Sports conference.


"Possibly personnel but not necessarily personnel. It could be practices. It could be the way we communicate."


Steinbrenner said a group of 15 team officials met in Tampa, Florida.


"At times it got a little dicey, but it was respectful," he said.


Steinbrenner recalled asking the group to "check egos at the doors." Among the topics were player health, clubhouse culture, analytics and scouting.


"I want you to challenge everything, all of our philosophies," he said. "I want you to challenge each other."

 

As the postseason is approaching an end, the Yankees owner seems to have his mind made up about making changes. The Yankee faithful might be wondering how much truth comes of this, as they have been begging for these changes.


An aging club that showed their flaws all season long has been the Yankees bread and butter over the last few seasons. With ace Gerrit Cole and captain Aaron Judge not getting any younger, their window for winning number 28 with these two in their primes is starting to become more difficult.
