Well...I think he's a lock for ROTY. That might help settle your mind.

I was talking long-term, not just his rookie season. There have been guys who won Rookie of the Year who went on to become perennial All-Stars and even Hall of Famers. On the other hand, there have been those who quickly became baseball afterthoughts.

I see. Well, time will tell.

Is he favorable with the media again?  First he was the greatest player ever.  Then he hit a slump (ignoring the whole rookie thing) and his career was projected to possibly be the worst ever.  ESPN...

And the Blonde he was spotted with at the US Open is credited with helping him break out of his slump. :lol: NY Post...

It's still hard to figure this guy because just when you think he's breaking out, he'll have a stretch of two or three games where he's o-fer with six or seven K's. 

Baseball, probably more than any other game, is subject to regression to the mean, but with Judge, it's difficult to tell where the baseline actually is. 

If he consistently bats .280 with 45 Homers and 100 RBIs most seasons, no one will care if he strikes out 200 times per season

Reggie Jackson struck out a lot too

Outside of the high number of Ks, I don't see many holes in his game

Just hope he doesn't turn into Chris Davis.

Yep. The only redeeming quality of Chris Davis at this point is that he plays very good defense

I wonder if him or Stanton have been tested recently?  

I think the Ball is juiced not the players

Homers are way up this year throughout Baseball

It makes me happy that McGwire's rookie HR record was surpassed.

Don't say that to the Commissioner.  He'll tell you you're delusional.

Plus the approach of a lot of hitters is HR or bust.  Certainly for the Orioles.

What's ironic is that the O's hit a lot of solo shots. That says to me that a lot of the time, when they're not over trying to hit home runs, their natural swing kicks in and they DO hit home runs. But when they try so hard TO hit home runs, they strike out.
