Hola, gang! It’s Davey Mac here…and it’s a good morning if you’re a Yankees fan. That’s because New York Yankees superstar outfielder Aaron Judge has officially won the American League MVP award.

Judge slugged an American League record 62 home runs this year…beating Roger Maris’ legendary total of 61 homers…61 years after Maris set his mark.

And on top of all of that…Judge is extremely popular with his teammates (as well as with the fans). It’s time already…Yankee owner Hal Steinbrenner and General Manager Brian Cashman NEED to re-sign Judge NOW. Do it before he gets away. I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents.
