Judging from the Start

Aaron Judge, huh? Okay, guys, thanks for reading! Check back next week for…something else…and enjoy whatever show Judge’s gonna put on for the next week. Despite Chase Headley‘s heroics and Starlin Castro‘s hot start, the hands-down, no doubt about it, bonafide best thing about the Yankees in April of 2017 has been Aaron Judge. He’s been an absolute monster, clocking...

How 2 Yankees cast-offs quietly became Yankees godsends

PITTSBURGH — Youth movement? Toolsy talent? Eh. The 2017 Yankees’ surprisingly strong start can be attributed to, as much as anything else, the Ro and Toe Show. Chris Carter delivered one of the biggest hits of this young season, an eighth-inning, pinch-hit, tie-breaking, three-run blast to lead the Yankees to an eventual 11-5 thumping of...

Aaron Judge Put a Ball into Orbit Last Night

Aaron Judge is large. He’s 6-foot-7 and 275 pounds of human. A lean, mean slugging machine. He is one of, if not the, largest players in the game right now, and we are blessed to be able to watch him ply his craft in the big leagues. It doesn’t hurt that he plays in Yankee Stadium, which is essentially the size of a thimble, but Judge doesn’t exactly need shallow walls to do...
