Aaron Judge has been on a tear this season. The Yankees stud outfielder is putting up miraculous numbers. The 6’7 25 year old righty slugger has 26 home runs while also driving in 59 runs and we haven’t even reached the halfway point of the season.
If he keeps this pace up for the rest of the year, which many baseball fans can’t see why not, he will be one of the top candidates for MVP. The 2017 season is full of young stud players but nothing like what Aaron Judge is doing right now. Judge is certainly “spreading the news’ around New York and the Bronx pinstripes are certainly lucky to have him. The Yankees currently hold the top spot in the AL east with a 41-33 record.
This has large part to do with number 99 for the navy and white pinstripes. Judges .330 batting average in the middle of the lineup, is producing most of that Yankee pop. It seems like everyday you turn on the highlights and see another home run from Mr. Judge. The Yankees have been a little bit of a surprise around New York.
Many fans didn’t believe they would be playing at this level. Judge is on pace right now to hit between 45-50 home runs. That would be “unheard of.” In only his second season to be putting up these numbers is pretty mind blowing. The AL’s Giancarlo Stanton?
You never know what kind of players rise to the occasion when being called up to the big leagues. Judge rose to the occasion like never before. His bat in that dangerous Yankee lineup, this year makes the city that never sleeps more alive than ever.
When October rolls around don’t blink cause you could miss these Bronx bombers in the thick of the playoffs.
