No Judge is honestly pretty huge for Means.

"Side soreness" for Judge. 

So far in (only) 10 career at bats versus Means, Judge is 2 for 10 with a .573 OPS. Of course that can always be interpreted as Judge is due against Means, but perhaps maybe not.

So  what you are saying is that Judge is ducking Means.

Not watching on TV but seems like the Yankees are hitting rockets everywhere and Means is a lucky duck so far. What's happening? No movement on his pitches today? Yankees just guessing right?

Lots of fly outs to Mullins in center.  Big centerfield in Yankee stadium.   Nothing that close to the seats.

Looks like a lot of exit velos of 100+.

Obviously not as good as his first outing but he still missed a ton of bats.  His swingstr% was 29% yesterday.  62% of his pitches were strikes, which isn’t awful but it’s below league average.

?? There's nothing crafty about Means. He's got a 93 mph fastball that he can spot in on righties, a devastatingly invisible changeup, and a quality curveball he can throw for strikes or occasionally make people miss on. Capable of striking out a guy per inning. Just because he's left-handed doesn't mean he's "crafty". That's selling his repertoire short. 

In 2021 max velocity of 93 is closer to crafty than overpowering.  Most of the Yanks' pitchers last night had 3-4 mph on him, as well as the O's relievers.  Darren O'Day excepted, of course.

I would take that as 10 PAs is about 100 to few to even begin drawing any kind of conclusions with a basis in fact more than palm reading.
