Good morning, gang! It’s your trusted Sports reporter Davey Mac here and I know I’m usually quite calm and composed but SCREW IT!! I’m not holding back!! Watch out, folks!! This little editorial might get nuts!!
…OK…let me breathe for a second. Sorry for that instant and insane explosion. But, you see, Aaron Judge of the Yankees is having arguably the BEST offensive season in Major League Baseball history. It’s a fact. Check out the stats, jack. Judge is hitting .316 which is currently just ONE point off the lead in the A.L…meaning that he is in serious contention to win a Triple Crown.
Judge is currently leading ALL of baseball in RBI’s (127), slugging percentage (.701), on-base plus slugging (1.120), runs scored (122), total bases (368), walks (92), WAR for position players (9.6), on-base percentage (.419), and…of course…home runs…with 59 homers. Judge can break Roger Maris’ American League record and Yankee franchise record of 61 home runs. Amazing. THAT, my friends, is what the BEST season in MLB history looks like. Period. Oh, yeah, by the way, unlike Ohtani, Judge’s team is in first place. And he’s extremely well-liked by his team-mates. So there’s that, too.
So why is my blood boiling today? Because I just looked at the Yankees’ TV schedule. Tonight and Wednesday’s games are on the YES Network. That’s a good thing. Thursday’s game is on regular FOX television…and that, too, is a good thing.
But, Friday’s game is on Apple TV. And guess what, gang? I don’t bleeping got Apple TV!! I have Disney Plus, and Hulu, and Netflix, and HBO Max, and Amazon Prime Video, Paramount Plus, and I ain’t getting any more damn streaming services!!
And so now I may miss Judge slugging his way into history if he does it on Friday!! For shame, Major League Baseball!!! Put Judge’s chase of Roger Maris on regular TV!! Grow the Sport!! Have people tuning in!! Like McGwire and Sosa in ’98 when their games were on NORMAL TELEVISION and the whole world tuned in!!
Wake up, Baseball!! THIS is your time to grab a younger and stronger audience!! Put the game on Apple TV on Friday if you must…but also make the game available on regular TV for the rest of us!!
I’m Davey Mac and that’s just my two cents!!
