The easy answer to this question is, no, Aaron Judge isn’t human. The 25 year New York Yankee rookie is taking major league baseball by storm. At the 84-game point, Judge has 30 home runs, 66 RBIS and is batting .329. One can only imagine what he will do for the next 78 games remaining for the Yankees. These are numbers nobody in their right mind expected.
For a season that started with such high hopes, it all came crashing down rather quickly and to be honest I blame myself. I was too confident in this team, more confident than any Met fan should be. I saw a world where the 5 aces ruled, where we’d go entire turns through the rotation giving up 2 runs total, where the 3-4-5 of Conforto Cespedes and Bruce would remind us of Keith Carter and Straw, where the back end of our bullpen would dominate and where the one major flaw could be covered up. I was dumb to think these things. Only one aces has been able to stay off the DL. Cespedes’ leg injuries cropped up again cause him to miss significant time. A blood clot has taken out the mostly reliable Familia, and that major flaw I mentioned Terry Collins has shown his how to really mismanage and get he least out of a bullpen. In this mess though, there have been a few bright spots.
Steven and Dan welcome in the boys from the Weisman and Oz show. They talk everything baseball. From the recap the home run derby to recapping the first half the season for both the Mets and Yankees. They than discuss the second half for both teams as well as around the rest of Major League Baseball.
