If you follow baseball, you already know what this story is going to be about. It seems like every day Aaron Judge is adding something to his statistics–whether it’s a home run, RBI, or a handful of hits, Judge is seemingly doing it all this season. We just passed the 1/3rd mark in the season, and Judge already has 22 home runs. On pace to break the Yankees' all-time home run record of 61 homers, Judge is doing his best to cement his legacy in pinstripes. If you think Judge can nab the MVP this season, you can bet on that through any Pennsylvania Online Casinos.

Judge, 30, is on pace to have the best season of his career–and that says a lot considering his 52 home run rookie campaign. He’s got 5 home runs in his last 8 games, and averages over an RBI per game in that stretch. He’s been a shining light in a Yankees lineup that, quite frankly, has been a bit dim.

The Yankees starting lineup consistently is home to a slew of hitters with a sub .250 batting average: Gleyber Torres, Anthony Rizzo, Josh Donaldson, Aaron Hicks, and Joey Gallo have all played at least 45 of the Yankees' 55 total games, and all are currently hitting sub .250. In typical Yankees fashion, the power has been there–four players (Judge, Stanton, Rizzo, and Torres) have double-digit home run numbers already. But if I know one thing about the Yankees, it’s that the injury plague is on it’s way, and a big slump is still to come.
