You might want to take Aaron Boone seriously if the New York Yankees manager guarantees a World Series title before the 2020 season.

Not just because the Yankees, who won 103 regular-season games en route to a division title in 2019, look like legitimate championship contenders, especially on the heels of signing ace Gerrit Cole to a nine-year, $324 million contract this offseason. But also because Boone has become Nostradamus 2.0.

OK, maybe that’s a bit strong. But the Yankees skipper absolutely nailed his prediction for Super Bowl LIV.

The Kansas City Chiefs, of course, defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium — just as Boone predicted — with Patrick Mahomes securing MVP honors.


Now, can Boone carry those same prognosticating skills to the dugout for his third season as Yankees manager in 2020? The Boston Red Sox — and the rest of Major League Baseball, for that matter — better hope not, for the Bronx Bombers already look dangerous enough on paper with Opening Day less than two months away.
