    Yeah. I was actually thinking that he never does this at Yankee Stadium. I'll have to keep an eye on this next time I'm at a game/

    Good thing there's video - his friends would never believe him otherwise.

    That he did it on the road makes it even cooler.

    He just gets it.

    The YES pre-game just showed him outside the Yankees dugout giving autographs to some kids in Phillies uniforms. Of course he's not the only player to do this kind of thing, but he just seems so approachable and comfortable in these situations. Definitely my favorite player on this team.

    Pretty decent look into Judge's recent slump (.242 in the month of June). Pitchers continue probing for weaknesses in his swing. They obviously found one and exploited it big time after the ASG last year, but Judge managed to adjust. Hopefully he can adjust to the inside pitch as well.

    judge still chases a lot of bad pitches when he does that he slumps.. when he does not he either walks or connects.. you notice that a lot of hittable strikes judge swings at he fouls off.. reminds me of last year when he was going bad...

    Everyone is a Yankee fan at YS. When you're on the road, it's a bit more special to have a young fan.

    Anyway, this is why I love baseball. Football fines players for tossing (or even handing, I think) a game ball to a fan.

    No fine for handing the ball to NFL fans.

    I just googled it. I guess it was a rumor because a ref was mad at him for doing that. Yeah, you have to physically hand the ball to the fans, and cant even underhand toss it to them.

    Re: The 2018 Super Official Aaron Judge Performance Thread

    the home/away stuff is a combo of two things, yankee stadium aiding his oppo field production and a more suitable approach at home relative to how he's pitched.

    he has a .350ish xwoba away, .400ish xwoba at home. but field dimensions and some luck adds 0.05 at home, and takes away 0.05 away, so he ends up at 0.300 woba away, 0.450 at home. if you just look at the raw xwoba it's a very normal home/away split.

    the difference in approach is notable in that he's being a lot more of a pull hitter away, and goes for the short porch at home. he's being pitched very much exclusively low and away on the road, but a bit more inside at home, part of a pitcher side adjustment documented elsewhere. he basically needs a more uppercut swing to hit low pitches better to the pull side, or else if he chooses to pull them he'll just pull them into the ground.

    despite his success going oppo on those low pitches most of his production happens on balls in the upper part of the zone, because his swing is still pretty flat and he'll have problem elevating low pitches, oppo hitting or not.

    it's the old story with his bull................ strikezone. it makes exclusively pitching to him low in the zone a viable strategy for pitchers. he's doing his best to lay off of low pitches but robot umps would help a lot for judge more than any other player.

    Pretty incredible that Judge's homer was the first by a Yankee at the ASG in fifteen years ...

    Just what I was longing for, an interview with Manny Machado during Judge's third (presumably last) at bat. (He grounded out.)

    Watching this All-Star Game is like watching The View. I'm Old School - enough with the in-game, on the field interviews. Just play ball!
