What Are You Lookin’ At?

The Yanks clinched the AL East on Tuesday night. They’ve got eight games left (including a double header next Tuesday in Texas). Under normal circumstances, Aaron Judge would get a game or two off. That’s not going to happen with him sitting on 60 homers.

You know he’s got to be pressing and yet last night he walked four times. He was up five times and the count went full in each at-bat. In the first inning, he lined out sharply to third and after that, he spit on the 3-2 pitch, all enticing, and took his walks.

One of Roger Maris’s sons sits next to Judge’s mother at each game. It’s all exhausting—Michael Kay has to rev up into “historic” mode each time Judge comes up—but in the meantime, the Yanks are winning and all is well.

Everyone should have such problems.

Never mind the great expectations:

Let’s Go-Yankees!

It Ain’t Easy

Hitting home runs is not easy even for the best of the them.

All eyes on Aaron Judge again this afternoon. Yanks have beat the Sox 5-4 each of the past two nights; he walked three times on Thursday and hit a long fly ball that he “just missed”; got a base hit and whiffed twice last night. The magic number for clinching the AL East is down to four for the Bombers.

Never mind the pressure:

Let’s Go Yank-ees!


Mr. Big Stuff

Aaron Judge hit home run number 60 last night to lead off the ninth inning. Four batters later, Giancarlo Stanton hit a line drive home run—the kind Dave Winfield used to hit—for a game-ending grand slam.

Tonight Judge goes for 61.

Let’s Go Yank-ees!

Bombs Away … And Counting

Well, the Yanks offense has been lousy this summer but Aaron Judge continues to astound.

What a season, with a couple more homers last night in Boston and Maris’s 61 within reach.


We All Scream

Wow, this has been some kind of ugly, eh? And to think they still have the second best record in the league.
