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!

  • Mets in Oakland tonight
  • Celtics coach suspended

  • Eagles go against Washington
  • Giants Vs. Cowboys on Monday Night Football

  • Yanks Beat Boston

    The Yankees beat the Red Sox last night in extra innings…5 to 4…though Aaron Judge did NOT hit home run number 61.   Judge walked three times…just didn’t see tons of strikes…and then in the bottom of the ninth Judge hit a fly ball 404 feet right in front of the 408 sign in centerfield that sent the fans into a frenzy…but it fell just short.   Nonetheless it was Josh Donaldson getting the game-winning hit in the bottom of the tenth for the Yanks.   Giancarlo Stanton had three hits…including his 28th home run of the year.   The Yankees now lead the A.L. East by seven-and-a-half games over the Blue Jays…eight-and-a-half in front of the Rays.

  • Phillies Shut Out The Braves

    The Phillies shut out the Braves…one to nothing…behind spectacular pitching from Phillie starter Ranger Suarez and the Phillie bullpen.   Suarez picks up the win.   The Phillies are still in the third and final, National League, Wild Card spot…two-and-a-half games ahead of the Brewers.

  • Celtics Coach Suspended For Entire Season

    Celtics head coach Ime Udoka has been suspended for the upcoming NBA regular season because of an alleged “inappropriate relationship” with a female employee of the Celtics organization.   ESPN reports that night Udoka had a “consensual intimate relationship” with the woman…who is on the Celtics’ staff…and this is a violation of Boston’s franchise guidelines.   The suspension is considered unprecedented for an active NBA head coach.
