Trevor Gallagher: Would You Return Aaron Judge's Historic Ball?

"Think about you catching the ball or lily catching the ball. I think I know the answer to this, but let me ask you anyway, Aaron judge, all American guy. I mean, the highest paid player in baseball. I'm sure being the Yankees fanatic you are, you're a big Aaron judge fan. I saw him being a nurse. I saw him being interviewed in a reporter said, would you like that ball? And he said, well, yeah, I'd like it, but he gave a very classy answer. He said the fan caught it. Legitimately, and they get to keep it if they want to. What would Trevor Gallagher Yankees fanatic do if he caught that baseball? Would you give it back to Aaron judge or would you sell it? I would give it back to Aaron judge, but I would request some very rare memorabilia, some things from the events I think not the bat that maybe the shoes or the batting helmet, the Jersey, something along those lines autographed photo. Wow. I didn't work my entire life to hit a baseball one particular night, so I don't see why it should deprive him of that, but if the guy that did catch it wants to sell it for three and a half million bucks, God bless them for that. No kidding.

There's a lot going on. We don't need to talk about Aaron judge, you know, and his quest to hit a thousand home runs in the season. We don't need to talk about sports. What would you like to talk about? Well, I've got a new piece up at stream dot org called America is going fascist in the negative sense. Okay? And fascist in the negative sense is a phrase I made up just to say loudly at college cafes on my way out just to leave behind his heads could explode after I left the cafe. But actually, I found a use for that phrase. It's kind of like saying racist in a bad way. And then right, right. But in this case, unfortunately, has too much application. By fascist in the negative sense, I mean actual dictatorial conduct. I mean, a president who gains power by shading means and then punishes anyone who criticizes him, criminalizes any questions about the election by which he took power. By fascists in the negative sense, I mean censorship of the media punishing and beating people up because of their political views, letting thugs off the hook because they beat up your political opponents using the security police to investigate your political rivals, raid their homes, take their put their supporters in handcuffs.

I look down, 22 seconds, the chance ahead, very, my kisses can't take it. Well, congratulations, bear. It's a little quick. Yeah. What do you think? Aaron judge hit number 58 and 59 of the season, Yankees beat the brewers. So he has 11 multi home run games. It's interesting that this is a national story, but he's really breaking Roger Maris Yankee record. It's not a national record. But, you know, in some people's minds it is that, okay, he's clean. I don't know who's clean or not. I mean, I don't want to celebrate it by going, yeah, he's clean because I've been down that road before. I guess if I would look at it, I would say, all right, if we're going to look at the cleaner era of matrix baseball and Aaron judge would be your home run king. If he gets past roger Mears. With 59 home runs, he now has the most home runs in a single season by a right handed hitter in American League history. That is something I did not know. Previously tied with two guys who played in the 1930s. Now that's a big deal. In that stadium, because it's catered to left handed batters, Hank Greenberg, and Jimmy Fox, both at 58 home runs in a season, but Aaron judge now with this 59th. Yes, Pauline. Aaron judge's older than people think because he came in the league at age 24. He'll be 31 when spring training starts. He's gonna ask, this is his only contract he's getting. This is his biggie. Let's say he asked for 9 years, what will be the number three 50? I'm going off top of my head. 9 times 5 is 54. I'm just saying he bet on himself. Let's say 9 times four so 360. Okay, so maybe three 80, maybe 400. By the way, whatever happened to Juan Soto, does anybody remember?

"5 to play for you for the first half of the deal. All right, well, if you're looking at the back half of his contract and what you predict, I think this is a natural gateway. We have to ask you for your favorite thing predictions. Yeah, I am glad you're laughing. It's gonna get real, real, real quick. My favorite thing. You know, the predictions. The one thing that when they turn out well, nobody cares and when they don't, everybody cares. All right, well, let's care about this one. Do you think Aaron judge will eclipse Roger Maris 61 home runs this season? So before the second half on ESPN dot com, I was asked this very question. And this was before Aaron judge went off on a home run jag to begin the second half, which validated my answer, which was yes. I do believe he will exceed 61 home runs this year. I am currently like you can hear it. Yankees fans. I am knocking on wood right now. My wooden desk right here, I don't want to drop a passing curse on him and doom him to the injured list and ruin the Yankee season, but so long as Aaron judge stays healthy, I would be stunned if he did not exceed 61. Well, I'm glad you're speaking directly to Yankees fans because my next prediction I want to ask you is, where is Aaron judge playing next season? Oh boy. This is a tougher one. The Yankees are always around or in excess of the luxury tax threshold, which is $230 million this year, $233 million next year. And let's remember they already have Garrett Cole under contract for a $36 million a year. They already have Giancarlo Stanton under contract for more than $30 million a year. They've got DJ le mayhew under contract. But if you look at their luxury tax number next year, right now it's only at a $140 million. So the Yankees have the room, they have the revenues, they have the reason. And that reason is why my long winded answer to this question is that he will continue wearing pinstripes next season. I think it's because the alternative is kind of devastating. I'm not basing my judgment for what the New York Yankees are going to do with Aaron judge. On my friends who are Yankee fans, but all of them. Men, women. Their children, every Yankees fan I know. Finds the notion of Aaron judge wearing a different uniform, absolutely devastating. Aaron judge, he's the type of player who Yankees fans truly want to root for. And the type of season he's having right now, the possibility that he's going to exceed 61 home runs and win the American League MVP. And potentially take the Yankees to their first championship since 2009. That's the kind of guy, if you're a franchise like the Yankees, you don't let go.

"Jeff, for most of the season, the New York Yankees have had the best record in baseball, though they have slept a little bit of late to the best record currently belongs to the Los Angeles Dodgers. But what does judge meant to this Yankees team? Everything? And I don't mean to be flippant when I say that, but if you look at what Aaron judge has done, just purely in terms of wins above replacement, which is the metric that's used to compare baseball players, not just against their peers this year, but across eras, Aaron judge has accounted for 7 war this year, which barely a hundred games into the season is an absurd number. There are the three walk off home runs. There are the times when judges hitting when nobody else is. There's the fact that Giancarlo Stanton, you know, his bash brother is out right now and judge is picking up the slack. If the Yankees don't have Aaron judge this season, they are a good team because they do have Aaron judges season. They have been a great team. Well, this guy sounds like he should be a Yankee for life, which is our next topic because we need to talk about Aaron judge's contract. He's due for a new one. And the Yankees did make this massive offer to him before the season. It was 7 years more than $200 million, but he turned it down essentially betting on himself. So what if contract negotiations look like since then and where might they go from here? Since then, they've been nonexistent. And Aaron judge said, explicitly, I don't want to negotiate during the season. It's a distraction. If we get an extension done before the season begins, that's great. I want to be with the New York Yankees. I love my life here. Things are good. This organization is the best, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. It's going to be interesting to look back in December or January or whenever he does side. To look back at what the Yankees chose to do and how it might be a potentially historic misstep for the organization or we can look at it 5 or ten years down the road. How will they have saved themselves from a giant mistake? Because the aphorism in baseball right now is that once you are 30 years old, you might as well be 40. That's quite often how free agents are treated by teams. And that tends to be the lower level free agents, not the superstars like judge. You look at Max Scherzer this off season. He's in his late 30s, and he still got an average contract of $43.3 million a year. But Aaron judge is going to hit free agency one time in his career. And this is that time and he is going to want to cash in as much as he possibly can. And you know, I was speaking with someone in the Yankees organization while all of this was going on. And he said, essentially, we're comfortable with our contract offer. And if he goes out and plays well this year, good for him. He will have earned whatever money he made on top of that. And that looks like a bet that Aaron judge made. And reaped a 100 million plus dollar windfall from it. Do you get a sense of exactly what Aaron judge is looking for in this next contract? Is it as much money as possible? Is it security? Is it something else? You know, he hasn't offered any insight into that at this point. But I think there are a few factors in play here. Number one, when you're a player of his caliber, you want to be not just regarded as the best. But paid like the best too. And we saw this with Juan Soto Juan Soto got offered a 15 year $440 million contract by the Washington Nationals, did not accept it and was traded a little more than a month later. For that Emily to be the case to turn down what would have been the largest contract in North American team sports history. It took a lot of gumption and where did that gumption come from? It didn't come from the number of four 40, not necessarily being enough. It came because Juan soda realizes that he is one of the best players in baseball that he is going to have a historically good career. And that settling and I use that in air quotes. But settling for $29.3 million a year when they're in 19 other contracts that have higher AAVs than that was just selling himself short. And, you know, there are players out there who believe that they need to get paid, not what the market believes they should get, but what the numbers say their worth. And if Aaron judges out there, Emily, turning down 213 plus $1 million from the franchise that drafted him, developed him where he has excelled during his entire career. What that tells me is that Aaron judge wants to be paid what he's worth. Not to take a discount because he gets to wear pinstripes, not to take a discount because he loves New York or because he's comfortable. There are no. He would like to get paid what a player who's got 7 wins above replacement, a hundred games into the season should get paid. And that is well over $35 million a year, and that's a contract that extends 8 to ten years somewhere in that range. And that if teams want him, they are going to need to pony up like we have only seen before with Mike Trout with Mookie bets with the highest Echelon of contracts in the sports history. You alluded to an 8 to ten year deal, judges 30 years old, is he deserving of a contract that long, maybe ten or more years that would bring him into his 40s? I don't know if the question should be about deserve as much as it should be about market dynamics, right? Because there are some players who prioritize length of contract. There's some players who prioritize average annual value. Aaron judge is so good this year that he's going to get to prioritize both. And you know that his market is going to start off robust because of the numbers. And it's going to creep into an area where there are only a few teams that are willing to go up into that neighborhood financially. The Yankees could go there. The mets. Oh boy. Aaron judge and a mets uniform. You want to talk about something. The mets though with Steve Cohen could go there and the notion of stealing Aaron judge and bringing him across into queens has to be very tantalizing. The San Francisco Giants could go there the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Chicago Cubs, the Texas Rangers have shown a willingness, but there's only a finite number of teams Emily that are going to be willing to give Aaron judge anywhere in the vicinity of what he desires. Now, we saw a similar situation with a Yankee a decade ago. And that was Robinson Cano's free agency. Now, Robinson Cano was not coming off the type of year that Aaron judge was having right now. And his market, at least for the ten years that he was seeking, simply was not quite as robust and he ended up going to Seattle for ten years and $240 million and he bounced around and it's been sort of an ignominious end to that deal. And because of his age now, Aaron judge, I think, is going to face some of those fears. There are going to be teams that say no, we can't do it for that long. But when the bidding process really kicks into gear when teams have reconciled with themselves, the idea that this is going to be a player who's getting 35 plus $1 million a year, if it takes that tenth year Emily, he's going to get that tenth year because those last few years, they look at it like it's sunk cost. They understand that when you're giving Aaron judge a ten year contract, what you're really doing is buying the first 5 years and inducing him with those last

"Clemente has made more pitches to Alex Korra right now. Then he has made in any inning but the third. 18 pitch. High fly ball into right field back to that way back to the gate. It's gone. Alex Clara on the 18th pitch and the dog is lead for the nothing. Yeah, pretty tough to beat an 18 pitch at bat that ends with a home run Taylor. Yeah, a walk is nice, but home run a little bit better. Brian role at base at Brian baseball 5, oh boy, tough time reading this morning. The schedule has been terrible this year, too many four game and two game series, teams having off days on Memorial Day and 4th of July, series against the same team, bunched together these issues are not lockout related to what gives. Well, I would say this, Brian, since I started covering baseball a million years ago, the complaints about the schedule come every year. Somebody's always got an issue with the schedule, which I get. Of the issues that you mentioned, the one that absolutely jumps out to me is why all the teams aren't playing a Memorial Day and 4th of July. Taylor, I don't get it. We've talked about it before. I mean, everyone's off in America sitting around. Probably on the couch, not doing much. I mean, it'd be a great time for Major League Baseball to showcase their product, but that seems a little too tricky for them. Reggie, a baseball and weather nerd at baseball Yoda weather. He writes in, I think he's mentioning boog. He's advocating for a mercy rule up ten or more in at least the 8th here. He had a whole explanation for this, but that's what he wants. Ten or more, and at least the 8th inning. What do you think of that? Yeah, you know, whatever the specifics are, I agree with boob that when you get into a situation where you have a bunch of position players pitching, that's not good. Mister jakey writes in are the a's tanking or do they just suck because their owners cheap and lost money during the pandemic? Yes. Corey Rupert is gonna shut us down for the week at Corey R underscore 12, which upcoming free agent gets more money this off season and how much judge or trade Turner. It's getting closer 'cause judge is having this sort of season that makes an owner lose his mind, you know? Like when Artie Moreno jumped in on the Albert pools bidding and I think something is going to happen like that and I don't know who that's going to be, but some owner is going to be able to tell his friends at the country club. You know what? I landed Aaron judge and I think that contract is going to be for $300 million, but here's the thing. Trey Turner is two years younger than Aaron judge. So I think that the contracts are going to be really close. A team to watch for me with Trey Turner, the Atlanta Braves. I'm wondering, you know, you got dansby Swanson headed to free agency this fall. You got trade Turner. At the early stage of their careers, trade Turner has been a more dynamic offensive player than dansby has been. Dansby is probably been much steadier, defensively. I'm going to be really curious about where the braves land. Oh, I love it. All right, that is it for bleacher tweets for the week.

"The future, but I remember that great video you did with your family when you asked each one of them about whether or not they wanted to continue. Is that at all play a role could certainly right in the cusp of right in that conversation? Well, you know what's fun to me is to even be considered in the conversation at all. Because I thought I was done four years ago, yeah? 2018, I thought my career was over. So to be playing the baseball four years later at somewhat of a high level and have people even start bringing up that conversation is a really cool thing for me because I remember back in 2018 watching MLB channel and outlier in a couple of guys were on there talking about people who might have been Hall of Famers that they never got hurt. And one of them mentioned me, I think it was out. I mentioned me like, yeah, if he hadn't been hurt, you know, he would have been there, but he's never going to get there now. Or whatever he said, it was rigged, respectful. I felt great about it at the time. But now I look back at that and go, wow, how cool is it that that conversation can be brought back up? Yeah. And that I'm even considered in the realm of possibility, you know, is a special thing. I don't know. I don't know what I have to do. More than I'm doing. I mean, I can't affect or change it anyways. People are thinking about it. Can't affect or change anything that happened in the past? Yeah. You know, I missed three seasons. With injury and sex, but what are you gonna do about it? Maybe that's why I'm getting these extra three or four at the end. No, because I missed those years, you know? I don't know why things happen like they do, but they happen for a reason and I'm just enjoying where I'm at. Last one, if you could identify one thing, the most important thing in your mind for you to get from where you were in 2018 to what you've been able to do in recent years, what do you think that was? Fucking identify one thing that helped me get here. From that point, when you're thinking, boy, my career might be over. Yeah. Well, it was I had to change how to change a lot of stuff, you know? Changed my diet, stopped eating gluten, dairy, and sugar, and processed foods for about 18 months. You know, didn't eat anything bad for a long time, got all the inflammation out of my body, changed my workout program. Who started trusting the people who were working with me, our team is just done such a great job with me. Adam Olson, Chris Conroy and Jason shut. Thomas Knox and Lance thomason, this guy's just poured into me. It's been hours and hours and hours working on my program and working on my diet. Working on my conditioning program, throwing program all these things had to change in some way. You know, for me to keep playing. And it was either not eat all the stuff I love eating. For a while, like you've been doing, not doing the same work and changing the mindset where I have to change if I want to keep going and doing it. What's a very rewarding process for them? You know, if I didn't, I wouldn't be playing right now. I'd be home for these fine too, but I probably still be hurting and it would probably be fast. Is that what I lost 35 pounds? I went from two right at two 52 48 down to two 15. And then worked my way back up. So now I'm at two 35. And I play, I play it this way now. I used to, I used to really like being heavier. Feeling stronger on the mound. Yeah, now I feel stronger on the mound. Heavier. It's not how I feel stronger than me. It's different way. I get stiff. I can't move as well. And now mobility and having my body be able to work for me instead of work against me is a big process that helps me to compete. And so I had to change a lot of things. So being able to be taught, it would be coached. That was important for me. Bleacher.

"My grip wasn't right. I was figuring out my too high and my too low and then, you know, you changed the grip. It's funny how grips change like that. But so last game, you know, I was telling somebody to hate somebody, show me your curveball grip and so I was showing them and then I was like, oh yeah, I need to hold it like that more. And so I started throwing it and started getting a little better finish. There must have been right went up a little bit. So, you know, it's a game of who was a player. Okay. And so did you immediately want to go out and say and go and throw after you guys talked about? I knew it right away. I mean, you know, one of the keys in my curveball is getting it on the side of my thumb, okay? And not gripping it with the patty or something. Right. You get it on the side of your thumb. You can create way more spin. The thumb is a part that doesn't get talked about on the curve ball much, but it's a really important part of it. Especially on my curveball, I've really created a lot of torque for my thumb. And I wasn't doing that at all. And so I was throwing the same shape, but it wasn't having that bite at the end of it and you guys were getting lots of hits on it. So we'll see what happens going forward, but it's now I've got the spin going the right direction. I like where it's at. Is your confidence to the degree with the pitch that, you know, through the years when you throw in bullpen sessions flat ground, you don't really need to throw it that much or do you work work on maintaining it. I still work on it. I mean, I think you still, your strength, you still have to work to keep them where they are, you know? You work on your weaknesses too, but you really work. You can really hone your strengths. I work on fastball command a lot. I don't work on curveball command as much, but it's much more natural thing for me than fastball command and so I have to work on that harder, but I do work on my fair ball command. But it's one of those pitches where people are like, hey, talk to me about how you're throwing that for a strike and I go, dude. That's one of those things I'm not thinking about. All right. I don't have keys, you know, that I'm thinking throughout it's a natural thing for me to be able to reach back and throw that pitch where I want to, most of the time. That's why I've been able to pitch for as long as if I didn't have a curveball, bless her, you know, you know, I don't get out of a ball. So it's been a great pitch for me. What was the conversation led it to your brother showing you that pitch? Do you remember any of that when he first showed it to you? He showed me all the groves. Yeah, yeah. Show me all the grips, all the thought processes behind pitching and all that. I learned from Trey. Student of the game. You know, I was a player in the game. I wanted to go out and perform. He wanted to study. Yeah. Why? And that's why he was valedictorian and eagle scout, and I was a dropout scout and, you know, not a valedictorian. But he told me how to study the game. Taught me how to watch, and he taught me how to really prepare better, you know, and he showed me the curveball group change up fastball grip. He was reading books by a guy named dick mills and other pitchers that pitching coaches throughout the years. We read Leo mazzoni's book together, you know, a lot of different coaches throughout the years. He was reading those books and saying, you need to do this, you know? You need to study this, and you need to do more of this. And so we tried all that kind of stuff. Did you have a member Mike massina telling me about how, when he initially started throwing his curveball, he actually had difficulty having catches you could catch him. Was that an issue? Was yours that good right away? It's always, I think they can catch my, I mean, I'm such a fan of the most, you know. Such a fan of his curveball. I'm gonna start to when he went 20 games his last year. Right, exactly. Kind of love that guy. Anyways. It's not a thing of whether they can catch it, but the first time it surprises him. The first couple of times, you know, it's surprises him. They don't really never seen a shape like that or maybe a finish on the pitch like that, which makes me feel good, you know, I was facing this year getting ready for the season. I was facing the high school team down there in Georgia. And one of the kids came up to me and said, hey, you know, you're pretty good. That curveball is pretty good. It's better than any curveball I've seen and I go, buddy, I hope so, you know, if it's not, then I don't need to be playing in the big leagues, you know? No offense to your high school friends, but yeah. Interpret this stat for me. We were talking about this number with you. You have easily the highest percentage of cold strikes in the major leagues. How would you interpret that number? Well, that sounds like a scatter report to me. Okay, mister bester. Okay. I don't want to go too far into that, but you know, part of that is the Greg Maddux. Thought process. And this is the, this is the most I'll say about it, but Greg Maddux taught me back in the day if you wanted all the strikes to look like balls and all those balls look like strikes. So if it comes out of the hand look like a ball, then you get a little bit of a hesitation from the hitter's point. Right, and then you have the edge, you know. So maybe things are coming out looking like balls, you know, I throw a curveball there. Looks like it's gonna be a couple feet high. It ends up being a strike or basketball that ends up, you know, starting off the plane working back to it. Right. What's your thought beyond this year? Beyond this season now. At this point. I try not to go there..

"I got a chance to talk with Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright about pitching about how long he wants to keep on pitching. Give a lesson. So I wanted to, when we had our production call the other day, David Cohen was talking about your curveball and how amazing he is by the fact that you've been able to maintain it so well during the course of your career. And, you know, he was wondering in a basket, but during the course of your career, how have you done that? I mean, my curveball is a pitch that since I was ten years old. You know, my brother taught me the grip. It's pretty much look exactly the same. Over the years, my arm angles changed a little bit and the way I have to take the ball back to change a little bit. So it's shaped a little different, but I mean, it's a game of constant adjustment, but it's been the one pitch that, you know, I could always rely on and I could always know the shape of it, know how it's gonna come out. So I could throw the ball as hard as I can possibly throw it and it's gonna come out 75 miles. You know, like this. And it has, you know, since I was ten years old, it was the exact same shake, but he said that that's what he finds to be amazing, was that you, he said, a lot of curveballs that are that slow and that velocity. They're kind of rollers. He said, but yours is, well, you know, to counter that a little bit, my curveball was kind of a roller this year a little bit. Couldn't get the end of the end of the pitch. People weren't swinging and missing it like they want to. Last game was the first game that I realized my correct grip..

"And I could just see in his face like, oh yeah, you're right. Because of the experience and what we've seen from Peyton recent years, I actually think it'll be one of the more enjoyable home run Derby games, Pete's kind of become the Darth Vader of the event. To anyone step up and beat Pete Alonso with all of his experience and the fact that he can keep his heart rate at 55 while everybody else is losing their minds. And the fact that he enjoys it. I mean, he has, he has made that his thing in the summer. This is what I do. I take the $1 million, I make great donations to a variety of charities. I love the stage. I've had my buddy do it. I've had another guy pick like it doesn't matter who's pitching to me. Yeah, he's a wonderful ad to that and the same way that Freddie Freeman may always be remembered as an Atlanta Braves or, you know, Pete Alonso may be the greatest home run Derby champion of all time and we've had Ken griffey junior and we've had individual seasons where you're like, oh my God, we've had Josh Hamilton at Yankee Stadium and Todd Frazier doing it in Cincinnati. In the end, you know, that may be a thing. Nobody could be Pete Alonso and the home run Derby when he was in it. Nobody could do it. We'll see. All right, Robbie.

"Yankee Stadium last night, huh? You know, on the Internet. Wow. Yeah, buster every night and Yankee Stadium. Aaron Boone, I think he's searching for superlatives. Researching for adjectives, they're trying to put their finger on the pulse of everything that's going on there. It has been magical and the man who is wearing the magic hat and pulling rabbits out of his hat, seemingly every day. He's Aaron judge. And then, I mean, I don't know, we just, we just got finished talking about Freddie Freeman. This is another one that's currently not making a lot of sense. You know, we are going to arbitration with, again, as I mentioned, the guy who is most associated with this franchise since maybe maybe Babe Ruth, I don't know, because of his produce home runs. The idea that we are not able to figure this out where he's made it clear he wants to stay. And it's obvious that the Yankees have a particular place point that they're willing to go and years, whatever it may be that we can't we can't figure this out. We can't be adults in the room. We can not get Aaron and cash or Aaron and Steinbrenner to sit down and hammer out a deal. I'm blown away by the inability sometimes of adults to act like adults, but yes, for judge, for Aaron hicks for the Yankees for Aaron Boone. We grind and we grind and we end up winning again. Look, if I'm Aaron judge, he told me and we go over this all the time. He winked at me that night. We saw him early in the season. We're in a good place. My God. And is there some magic formula? He was aware of because as good a place as he's been in his career, this is something different. This is Nirvana, and he's living in it. Yeah. It is remarkable to set up circumstances leading into this hearing. And I heard the circumstances of the hearing today, which is going to be on Zoom, that in itself is going to be surreal. Aaron judge is probably going to put on a suit coat and like you and I, when we do a studio shows, we might be in shorts. As he's listening to that and you're having conversations throughout that whole thing, and you feel like, as you say, it should be worked out, but it's just, I mean, we have no indication that it actually will be worked out. Aaron judge someone, as you say, you know, he should be with the Yankees, but the more and more this goes on, Carla reminds me of Albert pools and the cardinals in 2011, where in the end, despite the fact we all sat there and go, of course, Albert's going to stay with the Cardinals. That's where he belongs, I think the promise of an owner spending a lot more money than what the current employer wants to pay. I think Aaron's going to pursue that, which is totally his prerogative, but I don't think the Yankees are going to chase him. We'll just have to have to see where that goes. Underneath judge last night and what he accomplished with the Yankees accomplished, you're down Alvarez hit another home run. He's just ridiculous. We saw him the other day in Houston, you know, talk to folks in that organization about how good he is right now. You better get him for the Derby Carl 'cause I know you got that kind of pull. Well, we actually, we did kind of broach the subject. I do think it's something he's interested in. A lot of times, you know, you get your contract and you feel good and you're willing to go out and do some of those things. But boy, I'm looking at Pete Alonso and who could challenge somebody like him, assuming he gets to the All-Star Game, which is certainly looks like he will. He's one of those guys. Aaron judge is one of those guys. I don't get into the minds of the players and what goes into their decision making. But I'll be honest, I'm not certain that the first thing I want to do is go on a national stage and deal with somebody who appears to be a machine when it comes to this event. That's not a challenge to anybody's, machismo, and their competitiveness. But I mean, you've got to think about it. The way he Alonzo rolls through it, if you're somebody else, are you embracing the challenge? I think most of these guys would, that's how they got to where they got to. But maybe in the back of the minds of some of them, it's like, you're not so keen on doing that because if you've seen that guy, now when Tiger Woods was winning every event on the PGA Tour, the majors, there was a there was not a reluctance, but there was a resignation to if he's at his peak, we lose. I don't think that people are like that with Alonzo, but I got it. It might creep in there. So I don't know if that acts as a deterrent or a motivator for some people. I hope you're done Alvarez ends up in it. The same way I would always hope that Mike Trout, Aaron judge, John Carlos Stanton, you know, I'd love to home run Derby to be the best home run hitter in Major League Baseball, competing against each other. And those names are on a list. So I think you were still in dusty's office the other day when David Cohen and I bumped into Alex and Trump, the hitting coach for the Houston Astros, and we were talking about Alvarez and the possibility he would be in the Derby. And Alex looked at us and was like, this guy would be unbelievable in the Derby. You know, this guy would be the favorite and then I mentioned, yeah, there's Pete Alonso also,.

"Than in Atlanta. For our game on Sunday Night, we've got the braves and the Dodgers and of course tonight will be the first sign that Freddie Freeman is played in Atlanta since he signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers and you know I've actually heard a little debate seeing a little debate on social media about how he's going to be received Carl. I think you and I are going to agree on this one. I hope. I mean, I don't know why there's I don't know how there's any other option. You know, you want to be upset with Freddie for not inserting himself more into the negotiations. That's fine, but that's not a reason to boost somebody that helps you win a World Series and was the face of your franchise and very likely when it's Hall of Fame career and barring just a number of incredible years in Los Angeles. He goes into the Hall of Fame as a brave. I don't think there's any I don't know there's a better option. I mean, you get up, you stand, you clap. You bow, whatever you got to do to show your appreciation for somebody who clearly had mutual respect and admiration for the city, his opinion about the organization or the way that negotiation went down may change, but I know that would be nuts. I'm trying to think of players and maybe Aaron judge the Yankees is one, but players over the course of our years covering baseball who were more associated with one franchise than that guy. I think he's at the top of the list, so I don't have an option. I don't know if you have another option besides getting up, standing for a long time. Clapping. Yeah, that's why it was a shock when he left the braves, right? Because we associate Freddie so closely with the braves, he assumed all along, okay, those two sides will work it out. And I know that Jack Peterson doesn't have that sort of history. But we got a little bit of a preview, I think of what we're going to see with Freddie the other day when jock got his World Series ring, his teammates are messing with him on the field. He got huge ovation when he came up and played appearances during that the Giants and brave series. He got big cheers. That's what it's going to be like tonight, Carl 'cause you know, and you know Freddy's personality. He's going to have the biggest grin as he walks across the field because they're going to do this ceremony. I'm sure the ring ceremony right in front of the braves dugout. He's going to have all of his former teammates. He was very close with, you know, he was calling it, in some cases, he was weeping after he signed when it fell apart with the negotiations and fell apart with the braves. You know, he's calling teammates and saying how awful it was that it turned out this way. He was really upset. So he's going to stand in front of his former teammates are going to be a couple with him. Brian snicker will come out. Freddie will probably be crying 'cause he's a really emotional guy and there'd be about a million hugs and the crowds will the fans will cheer for him is all that's shown and then they're going to cheer for him, give him a standing ovation. His first box. First time in the box and he's going to have to wipe his eyes. Yes? A hundred, yeah. You know, I think this would be, I think this for him would be the most difficult of all of the days since he got that phone call and his son's birthday party and he realized like, oh my God, I may not be coming back here. This is older. The rub, the challenging part of all of that is how did you not reinsert yourself? How did you not make a phone call to say, hold on, time out? They're gone. We are going to work this out, Alex. And you and I. That's how this is going to happen because it's quite clear. The only thing I want to do is come back here. I want to be paid. What I think is my right and what's going to be fair, we're damn close on that. Let's finish this. That's the part that is so troubling and puzzling in all of this is how that didn't happen. How the agents didn't go back to them and say, here's our plan, or we just hung up and this is where we're at and he says, okay, thanks. I'll take it from here. That's the part that frustrating, because I think it's the hardest night of all of them. I think when you go back there, you're going to a different Clubhouse for the first time. You're stepping on the same field, you're seeing the same ushers, you're seeing and hearing the same public address announcer, you're seeing your teammates, you're seeing snitch, all of those things, that would be very, very difficult. Emotionally, for a guy who wears emotions, honestly. I think this knight is going to be very, very, very hard. I know it's going to be wonderful to get the ring and he'll be able to focus on baseball, but this is a hard, hard night, because this is where I'm supposed to be in that uniform in that dugout. So I think this is really going to be an emotional challenge. I.

"By play man on Sunday Night baseball, the Ravi trained lately has been in Omaha, Nebraska for the college World Series. Robbie, what you doing? Well, we're enjoying a preview show, a golden spikes award show this evening where I'm guessing Ivan Melendez will end up being namely college baseball's best player of the year out of Texas, a big hitting kid who's going to impact the major leagues. But we've seen a wide open tournament. It's not like Major League Baseball. You've had these tremendous teams. You came here with three national seeds, and that was it, and now we're down to our last two. You have old myths that surprised, I think some people yesterday when they knocked off Arkansas. And a team from Oklahoma, middle Oklahoma is going to be in the SEC in a few years, 2025, and it's kind of an SEC dominated world, as you know, and we're back at it again, starting with game one on Saturday, which should be really good. Oklahoma's got a little advantage because they have been free and out here. So they've rested their starters and the whole miss had to play a massive game yesterday and they use their race still in delusion. And I don't know if you saw it buster, but the game flew by, it took two hours and 6 minutes to play. Wow. Yeah, you got to love that. I wanted to ask you about, you know, as you watch all these teams, as you watch all these elite players, many of whom are going to name, we're going to hear in the draft next month. Is there a guy that's jumped out at you where you said, okay, I'm going to see that guy in the big leagues really soon. There's a couple. I'll tell you the most impressive part for me has been the defense. It usually is the guys that hit the ball over the wall, occasionally see like we did with lighter and rocker, two guys stand out on the mound. You know, the picture yesterday Dylan de Lucia was terrific, but Arkansas got Dayton more sun, Robert Moore who plays second base is shortstop partner, is his kid named Jalen battles, Kate and Wallace's Arkansas third baseman. All of them do stand out. The defense was really incredible. And on that team in particular, they stood out their first basement as a kid named Tate and stovall, who on a high school allegedly turned down about $2 million and you can tell he's still a little green. You can pitch to him and get him out in certain spots, but then in another game he'll have four hits and look like you, you'll never get him out. To me, the kid named Jalen battle stood out. He's the shortstop for Arkansas. Just really talented and we're watching dance. We Swanson have kind of a monumental season for the Atlanta branch. He shined here a few years ago. There's some of that in watching battles. I don't think he has the bat tool yet, but I'm sure he will. He's athletic. And that's the kid that has stood out for me and it's unfortunate the country won't be able to see him in a final series because they lost, but he's really been special. I don't think there's any place you'd rather be in Major League Baseball.

"He will much of the rest of his career in all likelihood will be played in anonymity if he chooses to go that direction. Again, not a value judgment. It is a statement of fact based upon the base full of situated right now in the national scene. All right, before we go, let's play a rapid fire game, which you made up called reminds me of. I'm gonna give you a name of a rookie and you're gonna tell me who that player remind you of. And we'll start with Bobby witt junior. Mister Bobby went junior reminds me of Ryan Braun. Here's what I see. I see similar bat path that sort of violent hip rotation that high finish. It's a swing that looks very similar to me. And obviously his season so far has been I think sort of a mixed bag. But look over his last 40 games. 11 doubles, three triples, 9 homers, a 5 39 slugging percentage. That's a premium bat. Will he be a superstar? Well, I think that will be largely dependent upon whether or not he ever learns to control the strike zone at a high level. The buster, what I know for sure is that Bobby witt is going to hit the living snot out of the ball for a really long time. Yeah, he's going to have 80 extra base hits and his rookie year and all. That's a pretty good season for a first year player. Michael Harris center Fielder for the Atlanta Braves. Michael Harris reminds me of Johnny Damon. Here's where I'm coming from. So the swing obviously has got the high leg kick and a high hands with that sort of classic sweeping swing. And you've noticed buster that produces just a lot of hard opposite field contact. He's got 30 hits this year is only pulled 8 of them. That bat stays in the hitting zone forever. I see a plus glove. He's obviously a better thrower than Johnny Damon, but I want when I watch Harris hit, especially, that's the swing that he most reminds me of. Johnny Damon. Yeah, I just can't get past the arm. And preparing for Sunday baseball was we going to did some digging into his history. I'm sure you know this. A lot of teams viewed him as a better pitching prospect than position player prospect before he was drafted in 2019. Johnny Damon's arm was not of someone who was going to be a pitcher. I agree. Like to me, Michael Harris has been a big part of the reason why the braves are just gathering momentum as we go along. And lastly, the Padres Mackenzie gore. Buster Mackenzie who reminds me of John Lester. Here's what I see. I see a picture that hides the ball really well behind his body, a really quiet lower half outstanding balance and a really calming presence. He's the co favorite right now to win the national league rookie of the year, despite just being lit up in his last two outings. But he allowed 8 runs over his first 8 starts during which time the league posted just a 5 21 OPS against him. I see a very similar makeup on the mound, a body that I think you'll really, really grow into and sort of the frame of someone who I think can be a really effective picture of the big league for the better part of a decade. I'm glad he bounced back, you know, there's a lot of conversation last year about whether or not he was developing a case of the yips. Would he be able to bounce back and he's been terrific this year? All right, ambo, thanks for doing this. Later, man. All aboard. It's the rabbit train we're call rabbit. More.

"Of course, is Paul and bikinis a researcher at ESPN who's a honcho on the show get up and I apologize from my appearance this morning. It felt like the flow was all over the place. It wasn't happy with it. When I got done, I was throwing stuff around. If I had been in a dug out some place, it would have been bouncing helmets, breaking bats, all that. I'll let you, I'll give you an opportunity to do better than I did and talk about Aaron judge's arbitration hearing and how you think this might play out the Yankees have offered 17 million and Aaron judge looking for 21 million. It seems weird to answer the question this way, given the context of his season, which of course is irrelevant in regards to the hearing. But I think it's going to be an uphill climb for Aaron judge and his representation in part because of his lack of availability leading up to the season buster. He played a 155 games in 2017. He put a 148 games last year, but in the three seasons in between he missed a 142 games. So the question is not how good are you? The question is how often? This is a body of work decision. Based upon you at your best, those aren't the only data points here. So obviously a lot of Yankees fans might be confused when the news winds up coming out that energize lost its cage, which I think is more likely than not, but of course it's worth reminding everyone that this year has nothing at all to do with it. And Aaron judge's career to date has been in large part to find by his unavailability. You're a 100% right. That's exactly right. It's as if the arbitrators, it's a three person panel, has to suspend, go back in time and imagine how they would look at Aaron judge in February versus now because of course everything got backed up by the owner's lockout. You normally wouldn't have an arbitration hearing in mid June, you'd have it in February. And so the arbitrators can't consider evidence of 2022, the two sides can't present evidence related to 2022. So that amazing night he had last night, about 27 home runs, all that. That is all out the window for this case. Now breaking news here, the Yankees offered Aaron judge a settlement at the midpoint between the two sides, the Yankees proposal was $17 million. Judge was the $21 million. The Yankees offered a settlement in 19. If you had been there and judge, would you have taken that base in which you just told me? Yes, but if I were Aaron judge, I also would have taken the 200 plus $1 million contract that the Yankees offered me in the off season. That's the difference between Aaron judge, a world class athlete, and me, an average television producer. And my judgment, $90 million sounds like a great salary for this year. In my judgment, 213 and a half $1 million sounds like a great salary for the next 7 years, but this guy's built differently. He thinks differently, and that's why we're in this position to begin with. Yeah, and I've talked about this and I think it's worth repeating. You know, every time we have a negotiations, one side is considered to be the idiot, the other side, the genius, everything is viewed through the prism of the result. And I've been telling friends like, in this case, there are no villains. There's nobody who is stupid. You know, the Yankees, everybody in the industry feels like that the Yankees offer 213 and a half $1 million was absolutely fair. And it would have been the second highest contract in the history of baseball for an outfielder behind Mike Trout ahead of Mookie betts and Joe Carlos Stan and Bryce Harper. And so the Yankees offered him the 7 years at 213 and a half $1 million more than 30 just a tad over $30 million a year and Aaron judge as his Parra is his prerogative wanted to be more in the Mike Trout territory of $36 million a year. So I hope that it gets looked at in a different context than one side's the idiot once our one side is brilliant, but I don't think that's going to be the case embo. Nor do I. If you think Brian asked me to stupid, look at the Yankees results on the field this year. You're the stupid one if you think that. It's also considered the fact that he had to make his decisions based upon the facts at hand and given the fact that he was going to be paying Aaron judge for his 30 somethings. This is an unprecedented player of size and skill, but the idea of paying a 6 foot 7 player with a massive strike zone, $40 million a year into his late 30s is just not good business. If he loses 5 or 10% of his bat speed over the next few years, buster, he's just going to be a shell of the player that he is right now. The player that Aaron judges this second, the last three months that he has had. It was not necessarily representative of the player he's been throughout most of his 20s. It's representative of the very best that he's been, which he's been on occasion, but let's look at the body of work. This is a body of work decision. Brian cashman's great at what he does, Aaron judge is great at what he does, and they can both be great at what they do without creating a villain and without creating a hero. You asked me a question as a producer on that segment today. Do I think that Aaron judge is going to be with the Yankees next year? And I've gone back and forth on this. I'm increasingly beginning to believe that this negotiation is going to play out a lot like Albert Pujols in 2011, where you get a face of the franchise, superstar player, MVP caliber player, and in the end, the team will look at the metrics and look at the age of the player and say, nope, we're not going to do that. And some other owner will step in. Does that make sense? It makes sense. And I'll say this much, and this might get me canceled on Aaron judge Twitter. But Aaron judge needs the Yankees way more than the Yankees need him. The value of that franchise won't decline by 1% at the expense of the cubs or the Giants or whomever. But Aaron judge's public equity, if you will, his public stock will plummet. And that isn't an errand judge judgment for lack of a better term. That is just the reality of the situation. Baseball, right now, just can't market and build it superstars in any market, the way that the NBA can and the way that the NFL can. Aaron judge in New York City is a match made in heaven, a perfect marriage, Aaron judge most anywhere, most anywhere else is going to disappear just like that agent said in the piece you wrote over the weekend..

"Driven down the left field line. It is a base hit. It goes into the corner and the Yankees have done it again. Trevino scores and they come all the way back for a dramatic 7 6 victory. They're 9th walk off of the year. And their record is 52 and 18 after beating the Astros yesterday, right after the game, Meredith moroccans spoke with Aaron judge. Aaron, this is this team's now 9th walk off of the season. How are you guys doing it? Where does the never equipment mentality continue to come from? You know, it comes from believing in each other. That's what this team is about. We believe in each other. And when you got a packed house like this, how can you not? This is, this is amazing. This is amazing, man. You know, a lot of great at bats throughout the whole night to get to this moment. Yours obviously was the difference maker in this one standing through you four straight splitters. How did you remain locked in throughout that at bat? I know I was going to get the job done. You know, I had faith that I was going to go up there and do my job and I was able to get a pitch I could handle and I got it done. How much do you love coming to the plate in those situations with the opportunity to end the game with one swing? That's when this game's at its best right there. Moments like that. Crowds on their feet. Games on the line are the moments in your backyard. You dream about, you know? You mentioned some of the other bats. You don't get the opportunity to be the hero with that home run from Aaron hicks, just how much life did that inject not only to the stadium, but into that dugout. Oh, this was the playoffs atmosphere right there. When hicks hit that home, I just looked into the bleacher. Everybody was jumping around and going crazy. This is a big series, and we're looking forward to tomorrow. Play out badmos fear last night, and it nude Eastern Time today. He's going to be on a Zoom call for an arbitration hearing.

"You watch him play every day and you could just you see how he has expanded his own. He's actually you know he's he's been able to identify balls or the plate too much better. I don't have the d the metrics to back that up. I don't have the The the nerd stats to back that up. It's just be watching the games every single day and the confidence that i haven't a player and i have that confidence in him i got. I got no more confidence than anybody else. Dj lemay you. It'd be the only guy just because of the track record but there's nobody else. I'd rather have a big situation. What do you think. Aaron judge's strikeout percentages this year. Do you have in front of you. Yes i do. You want me to tell you for how about this. His career percentage is thirty point. Three percent what do you think is percentages this year twenty-four bob. Guess things a little lower than thirty. Say twenty six bob pretty much now but it's twenty five point nine percent. He striking out less this year than it has in previous years. See the eye test is good for something the eight yeah and i would whatever he just. He just looks like a more complete. He looks more comfortable. He looks like he's got more control of the of the strike zone. He's he's just up there looking different and i honestly before even big situations i still have the confidence i think as a fan when you're thinking about a clutch player it's it's a matter of who'd you have the most confidence in as well i guess he's also a big home runs. You know if you look at all the numbers You don't you. Don't see the consistency like you did with a guy like derek jeter who essentially had the exact same numbers he did in. I was just going to bring that up so he had moments seaside moments. He's made phenomenal place in the field. He's he's he's. I think clutch performer. I think in the moment big. Aaron judge does buckle down in. I have i have confidence. So the the one of the my favorite stats from derek. Jeter is that his career batting average in his playoff batting average are virtually the same. It was like one or two percentage points off and when you realize that he had basically multiple seasons worth of postseason play. It's not just a small sample size. And i because he played a while ago i don't think fan graphs has the leverage. But i'd be curious to know in leverage situations what judge what jitters stats are. And if we're using the same logic to measure aaron judge. He performed worse in high lever situations than he does in medium and low lever situations. Yes he's better than league average which is good but he is worse than he normally is in the pressure moments. Yeah i mean the the sample size again. We need to have a larger sample size for that as well as we go on for his first career. He's got a pretty good pretty good size right now And if we're looking in the postseason as well you're you're up against better competition. You're up against today's. You gave me a lot. More specialized Pitcher so you're getting the best of the next of pitch when you're right we're not. We're not just comparing him junior but it's impossible. It's an impossible thing to do. But again i look i don't know how else to say it. Besides the fact that. I have confidence in him. If you can into other name another player either either one of you know your side. Your is who came over to the team. I wasn't really thinking your point lighthouse. I have a. I do have a level of confidence in from what we've seen in the past but again it hasn't i haven't seen enough for for him to give me anything that i haven't seen from chicago but yeah i i don't know other else on this team that that people want up in a big situation. That's a good point. That's a good way to think about it and to use one of bob stats here. The only player since two thousand seventeen to have more go ahead or game-tying hits in the seventh inning or later than aaron judge is gleyber correct. Die that right yes. That's how i read it to you. And i'll tell you what cut you not long. Labor door is up in a big situation. I will tell you this. The other thing about the the narrative from yankees fans is that we did. Derek jeter play. We saw great teams with great clutch hitters performing big moments. So it's almost like we're ready for it to happen because we've seen it in the past and subconsciously we compare those moments to the other ones. We've seen in the playoffs. So when you do that after you've seen you know. The jeeter teams those championship teams. That it's a two thousand nine. Yes you're looking at at amazing amazing runs historic don't happen historic and probably won't happen and the same thing with the bullpen. I tweeted this out today. As i was just like praying that the yankees didn't blow the lead in the ninth inning. It's at for twenty five years even on teams. That weren't so great. The yankees basically had locked down end of game. Obviously mariana rivera. But then david robertson was pretty damn good. They had that one year of raphael soriano. He was pretty damn good and then they went to andrew miller. I was pretty damn good and then aroldis chapman pretty damn good and now we're sitting here and it's like throw shit against the wall. Is that britain. Could actually have the balls to pitch chad green. Let's see if he can get through the ninth inning. Lucas liqi sure. Why not. it's like we're not. We're not accustomed to this. We are not conditioned to watch this kind of bullpen. In the late innings. But you know what this happens all across baseball. This team's live. Yeah i also. I also think fans we sometimes do have short memory like aaron judge the last couple of days. He's had big hits in late in the game a week from now if he's in a big position in the nines and he strikes out..

"Because of of him in the outfield it just makes his team. It does make it better. And it gives them the ability to match up. And that's something they haven't been able to do. James seventy seventy okay games. We went from seventy two to zero. I don't get it. I don't get it all right. Let's talk about aaron. Judge bob your segment. You have a question. But i i wanna talk about aaron judge and how he has been on fire so since coming back from covert on july twenty seven. He has eighty plate appearances. Twenty two hits five homers sixteen. Rbi's ten runs scored that is three six average with a five fifty six slugging and then this week he was he was just another level. Hit four fifty five with a nine fifty five slugging this week. Now on the season hitting two eighty six with a three seventy on base a nine to up yes very very very good numbers not mvp level numbers. Not as good as we've seen him in the past but still very very very good. So what is your segment. Well it starts after the last few days. We've seen him in the eighth and ninth inning. Thursday ninth inning. Two run shot to give us a chance to come back into iraq in which we did. Obviously we all know what happened next. And then going to saturday night. Top the eighth inning. He hits a home run to take the lead which inevitably inevitably we blew that so. My question is because over the years. Everybody's said oh aaron. Judge isn't really clutch hitter. But then there's people that say no. He is pretty close so my question is do you guys consider aaron judge a clutch player a clutch hitter. You consider them. Clutch should have made that catch today. In right field that would have been clutch. It was a tough couch but he he would tell you that he should have made it. Okay aaron judge is kind of a victim of his own success because he's he's such a good all around player that when he doesn't do something like make a difficult catch on the run at the wall. You're like well. I've seen you do that before. So why didn't you do it. And it's kind of the victim of being a superstar and same thing with his leverage numbers which fan graphs does breakout situations the high medium and low leverage. We've talked about this specifically before and in high leverage situations he's got a one nineteen wrc plus that's nineteen percent better than league average. That's good that's solid. But the problem is in medium and leverage situations. He's got a one fifty eight and a one forty nine. Wrc plus which is far and away better than his high liver situation so we see as fans sitting at home him perform so fantastic in the low and medium levers situations and then perform just kinda good in the lever situations and we. We say that's not clutch. Because i saw him hit a two run home run in the second inning and hit the two run home. Run in the ninth inning. So what's up. Maybe he walked. Maybe he just flew out. 'cause that happens a lot in baseball you. You don't get hits most of the time in baseball. So i think a problem and a reason why people say he's not clutch is because he performed so great in other situations and also he's supposed to be the guy always coming through he supposed to be the best player. He's supposed to be the face of the team so everyone's harder on him when he doesn't come through if ruth negga door strikes out in the ninth inning tyler wade or jewish ella or literally almost everyone else except giancarlo stanton. We'll give a shit. But when it's aaron judge we say not clutch if i mean if you look back at the numbers the numbers are going to give you a case for for what you want to hear it. The numbers will give you the case that that you know is the average. Isn't there the the all of the The metrics that you're looking at you could be make the argument that the stats don't back up that he's a clutch clear. That said aaron judge to me today is a more complete header that he ever has been. I think he's becoming. He's become a much better baseball player. Just all around you. She hasn't put up. The you know the biggest numbers recently. He's had some some good success but he's been pretty consistent. I liked him in every big spot. She has cut down his strikeouts to point. Two dozen seventeen. Didn't he set the record for postseason. Strikeouts think he did the record for him and gary sanchez like as a tandem set some sort of record. I don't know if it was him specific. I think he did as well. I remember looking it up. But he also is a tremendous outfielder. He's a he's become a i think he's become a leader in that clubhouse he's he's the guy that criticized him earlier in the year for for maybe criticized him for wondering if he was a guy or what he was doing or not. I did not that. I can stop happens. I got real pissed off when he was not starting the game against shohei ohtani right and you were barking. That look on putting that on the. I arab i mean he has been lately. Dominant aaron boone. I don't like aaron boone. Aaron judge for the record the Aaron judge is a guy that if you ask me who i want up in a playoff situation in a big moment right now right now i will give you two guys you still. Dj lemay absolutely aaron. Judge digi limit. You those are the two guys up. Who else what about rizzo. I know we've not seen a lot of rizzo and he's been out with covert but i like rizzo's cow ability to strike out with big spots. That is so huge in the playoffs. I knocked on ball. That on ball and aaron judge has gotten much better at that. Aaron judge is taking the ball the other way. Aaron judge is giving you the flyable that you need. He's become a much more.
