"The Yankees beat the Angels that night, and they won again the next night, and they kept winning. From April 23 through June 20 -- Judge came off the DL on June 21, more or less making the Yankees lineup whole -- the Yankees went 35-17. Aaron Boone managed a bench to two wins in every three games, and took his team from a battle for the second wild card to a six-game lead in the division. Rocco Baldelli will win the AL Manager of the Year, but what Boone did over two months stands with anything any manager will do this year."
