Right Now, I Hate Baseball.

How did the Yankees end up with Judge? SMH. Jeter retires and now they got a HR hitting machine. And judging (excuse the pun) by last night, the moment isn't too big for this kid. 

Not only that, I see a young team that seem like the polar opposite of the way the O's finished the season. They rose to the occasion while we shrunk when the games got bigger.

Judge is an extremely interesting development story, no one thought he'd be THIS good.  In addition to tapping into all of his raw power in games(which he didn't do in the minors), he also cut down on pop outs by 75% and when pitchers started pitching around him, he just walked more.

Just wait until they add Manny in 19. They and the Sox will be on top for a good while.

I'm praying that Judge is having one of those fluky-good rookie seasons and that he'll never be this good again.   He did have that one 48-game slump where he hit .181/.341/.337 and struck out 75 times.    I hope there's more of that in his future.    If not, it could be really scary playing the Yankees for the next 15 years.

I had totally forgotten about the Wild Card game and flipped it on in maybe the 2nd inning. I tuned in just as Gardner was going into the dugout out after his HR. Kind of kept the game in the background, but it was such a slow moving game, that I just lost interest in it. I think it was after the Judge HR that I turned it off. I am just disinterested at this point. I may perk up over the weekend.

It is very frustrating that they have a guy like Judge.  And what about Gregorius?  Where in the world did he come from and why is he better than Jeter?  And scrappy Gardner is the worst of all.  Watching these guys have great at-bats in October is going to be torture after seeing our best hitters routinely underperform in the playoffs.  I think it was in the 7th where Judge led off the inning....it was an at-bat with close pitches that would have struck out all of our hitters....yet he patiently stood up there and took the walk.  It almost isn't fair.

Hate is such a strong word to disguise jealousy.  Unless your a teenage girl.

There's definitely jealousy. I'm looking at a potential dynasty in the making while we're just happy to finish 500.

Absolutely.

Don't worry.   In five years Judge will be a free agent, the Yankees will have done nothing proactive to lock him up, and we can simply outbid them for his services.    B|

Sounds like its a testament to their coaching, but even more of a testament to the kid's intelligence and drive.  I want to hate him, and I am extremely jealous that the Yankees have him, but from all I've watched and read about the him, he plays the game the right way, so I can't hate him. He seems to be the antithesis of Ortiz or Bautista.  If that remains the case, it will definitely soften the blow of him hitting 500 foot homers off us a liiiitle bit for the next 10 years for me.
