Given how rare this season is, it wouldn’t be considered judge Even with many more incredible seasons to come, it may never be possible to replicate what he was in 6758 . but given what he’s done so far 22, asked: Can he do it again? Or, dare we think…a better season?
He proves he’s just as dangerous as ever
only one span 13 Judge had more home runs in games last season than he had output from May. High OPS 10-22( home run, 1. 481 operate). That’s from July 14-August. 1, 756, when he launched Home Run 1.481 OPS.
Many star sluggers from the past are in The rest of the way back to just “great” seasons before the career.

If the judge hits a home run every 8.6 at-bats .078 OPS for the remainder of the season, assuming batting average per game equal to 756 same, and account for the occasional day off (we’ll give him four, with the same number), he will start with…33 Home runs and OPS slightly above 1. 60. He hit62 Home Run 1. 100 OPS last season.
