Madden: If Yankees aren’t home for wild-card game, Aaron Boone will be to blame

Since Aaron Judge went down with a chip fracture in his wrist, July 26, the Yankees are 25-20. But this isn’t about one player. The Yankee pitching staff over that 45-game period has a collective ERA of 4.31 and the rest of the Yankee hitters are hitting .235. Overall, the team, with its too often one-dimensional, home run-or-bust offense, has played sluggishly, too many strikeouts, too many spotty starts by the starters, too many letdowns from the bullpen that was supposed to be deep enough to withstand the loss of Aroldis Chapman for an extended period.
