10 thoughts on “Yankees.com: Judge ‘a little oversized for the park’ with 467-ft HR, three doubles

  1. I rarely consume baseball media outside of Yankee-centric blogs so I really don’t know how Judge is perceived in the larger world, but I get the feeling that Judge is underrated/underappreciated by Yankee fans. Or at least by Yankee fans that follow such blogs.

    I know I do.

    It might be the strikeouts or familiarity or just the anticipation of him dropping off a cliff.

    I think it’s that as we become more educated as fans we start looking at what a player doesn’t do well instead of appreciating what they bring.

    Anyway, Judge is awesome. I won’t be surprised if he ends up with better numbers than Soto and I won’t be surprised if I spend more time fretting about his injuries and body type than appreciating that awesomeness.

  2. 1:10 start
    A Volpe (R) SS
    J Soto (L) RF
    A Judge (R) DH
    A Verdugo (L) LF
    G Torres (R) 2B
    A Rizzo (L) 1B
    A Wells (L) C
    J Berti (R) 3B
    T Grisham (L) CF

    1. Ugh.
      Kidnap Boone and treat him really well in his underground cell.

    1. Dominguez was f*ing Superman in his short time in the majors. If he’s anything like that, I don’t think you worry too much about Verdugo. And you have to give him that chance, right? At least the chance you have Volpe? In short, I think Dominguez plays, and if it’s largely instead of Verdugo – so be it. And we’ll just be pleased that while he was out we got lucky with a patch of well-above-average (and well-above-expected) from Verdugo.

      UPD: having read Brian, who must know the lay of the land better…. really?

    2. The Martian could force the issue by dominating the minors, of course, but unless he does, he’ll almost assuredly head to the minors once his rehab is over.

    3. Brian, I can’t see them leaving Jasson in the minors all season. He was up with the intention to stay last year and not just because the OF was thin. I think they’ll bring him up and give him a chance to make an impact. He may go back down but I just feel like they are into him and want him in themajors.
