    Helmet? Better wear Kevlar.

    I grew up in the tri-state area, been to many a Yankee game at the old stadium, those fans in the bleachers are insane, they'll stomp their own grandma's heads for a regular home run ball, no less #61.

    When Judge croaks #61 they'll be an all out riot for that million dollar ball.

    Judge has 60 and the next closest is 40. What was the previous widest gap between 1st and 2nd in HR's? That's very telling.

    Dead ball this year, so to break HR record this year is all the more impressive.

    Dude hitting .316 too. Outside of Bonds' tainted seasons, this might be the best season for a hitter in MLB history?

    Most dominant single season by an individual is more like it, yeah, you're correct, this might be the best season for a hitter ever.

    I work remote, but as soon as I get a chance the geek in me will mine the databases and see if this is indeed the widest gap.

    Great question, now I'm curious.
    I'll get back to you on this.

    yes, JJ, but Judge can handle it.........

    you know the saying, "speak softly and carry a big stick"......


    then again, you probably don't know it:






    as you can see, you don't appear to be "speaking softly"........

    this is the tough one obviously and now boston is walking him too so limiting chances. i would be a nervous/excited wreck before each at bat.

    in reality, this is all a bunch of nothing, as Judge is juiced on new-age peds, which, like it was with sosa, mcquire, and bonds, be revealed down the road, rendering all of this irrelevant...

    i said that to my mom last night how ironic it would be if it comes out like in 2028. we were talking if he is considered the HR king if/when he breaks 61. funny you say it too.

    I think that he hits #61 tonight. I got a few wagers on it.

    getting tough when they walk him 4 times

    that last at bat, he saw 7 pitches and none of them were even close to being a strike

    no pitcher wants to be the answer to the trivia question until the end of time on "who gave up #61 to Judge"

    He's strong enough to 'walk into' a HR or two, but that's about it.
    62 I think is where he lands.

    pressure is already high. at home this weekend Maris' family was there every game. all the fans are standing up each at bat. everyone has their cellphone and flash on. it has to be tough and as mentioned all pitchers are either walking him or giving him their best stuff so he does not hit it.

    i think now if he hits 61 he will get hot. i can see him reaching 65 but he has to hit 61 like immediately tonight. this is the tough one and the one i think he is feeling the most.

    boone wants to rest him too cause boone has that itch to rest guys obsessively so that will hinder the HR total at some point.

    absolutely, they've even been saying as much

    61 or 62, nobody wants to be the guy... 10 years from now, nobody is gonna ask "who is that pitcher that walked judge 4 times and threw nothing but junk 2 feet off the plate?"
