It’s your pal Davey Mac here and I’m back, baby! The Sports Report had to go on a two-day vacation but we’ve returned and we’re ready to rock! Today, we’re talking about Aaron Judge…a.k.a. “The Greatest Baseball Player In The World.”
Sorry, Ohtani. But it’s officially Aaron Judge’s world. And you’re just living in it.
While we were away, Mr. Judge slammed his SIXTIETH home run of the season…tying a certain man named BABE “Freaking” RUTH.
And so Judge sits on the precipice. The Yankees play the Boston Red Sox tonight, Saturday, and Sunday. And then the team is on the road.
That gives Judge three games to tie Roger Maris’ 61 home runs in a single season…which is the American League record (it also is, of course, the Yankee franchise record).
Three games roughly translates into 12 at-bats. Judge needs just ONE home run to tie…two homers to have the A.L. record all to himself.
Can he do it? WILL he do it? Well, I’m officially saying yes. With the Yankees heading off to Toronto on Monday, I say that Judge gets it done this weekend in front of the home fans.
As long as the Red Sox actually PITCH to the guy! After all…Boston manager Alex Cora said that the Sox were gonna pitch to Judge…and then they walked him THREE times last night! Come on, man!
Anyway, the amount of joy that Judge has given us this year has been insane…and I say he gives us a little more magic this weekend! BOOM!
