    If you didn't you need only listen to the commentating during the Home Run Derby. It got awkward, I thought about turning the channel for a while so the announcers could have some privacy they were getting so turned on.

    Listen, there's no doubt the kid is impressive, a phenom, whatever superlatives you want to throw out there, but the fact is it's turned up to 1,000,000 because he's a Yankee.


    Seriously, the comments got embarassing to the point where during the entire semis and finals, even if they weren't batting it was just a good old fashioned 70's love fest with AARON JUDGE.

    lol the media is in heaven right now. "THE YANKEES HAVE THE GREATEST PHENOM IN THE LAST 500 YEARS ATLEAST!"


    "Folks, there have been 3 significant events in human history: 1. discovery of fire 2. Invention of the wheel and 3. Aaron Judge!!!


    I love baseball, but the national media coverage of it which ONLY cares about the Yankees and the Redsox (and the Cubs every 100 years or so) is just eye-rolling stuff.


    It's just mindless pandering to their fans. A Yankee fan during the 2001 series argued with me that Jorge Posada was "the greatest catcher of all time."

    Aaron Judge is the story of the first half of 2017. I understand why some may not like that, but the media has to acknowledge it.

    I'm sure playing in the biggest market with the most storied franchise in the history of the sport adds to that.

    no, no he wouldn't lol. It doesn't bother me, the whole post was supposed to be humorous with the main point being exactly what you said.

    If he wasn't a Yankee, we would not have heard his name prior to this event. Instead the entire event becomes the AJ show with the announcers slobbering all over the Yankees and their "phenom."

    It's like when the Cowboys are good in the NFL, it's just embarrassing.

    What I don't get, if you aren't a Yankees fan, why buy a judge jersey?

    Bandwagon? I wouldn't buy a Yankee jersey if I were standing on a glacier in Alaska wearing jockey shorts and that were the only shirt available.

    Hey, do I get honorable mention in the Yankee hater of the year award? :)

    It's deserving but he'll come back to earth. Btw Brian Cashman is one of the more underrated GM's in baseball.
