Sources reveal that YES Network engaged in conversations with Buck Showalter regarding potential involvement with Yankees’ regional network

Two Former New York Yankee Managers Pursued TV Opportunities with YES Network, but Only One Landed a Job: Buck Showalter”.

The YES Network was interested in hiring not one, but two former New York Yankee managers this offseason. Along with Joe Girardi, the network had discussions with Buck Showalter about joining. However, Showalter was under contract with the Mets and they had the right to prevent him from advancing talks with YES. Once it was known that he would be fired by the Mets after a disappointing season, Showalter’s talks with YES also came to an end. Despite this, the Mets stated that they would not prevent him from pursuing a job with YES or any other opportunities.

Showalter, who will be part of MLB Network’s coverage this season, has previous experience as a TV analyst. With Boone on the hot seat after failing to make the playoffs last year, it is unclear if Showalter would have accepted a job with YES if given the chance. However, his role on MLBN will be broader and only involve once-a-month appearances, avoiding any potential conflicts.

The addition of Girardi to YES is unique in that he was previously the manager before Boone took over. Girardi was fired after the Yankees made it to ALCS Game 7 in 2017 but has since been replaced by Boone. With Boone struggling to keep up with expectations after failing to make the playoffs last year, it is possible that Girardi may have been interested in rejoining his former team as a TV analyst or commentator for YES Network.
