    Rooting hard for him to at least get 62, if not more.

    That pitch was dead center with no movement whatsoever. Morganna could have hit that pitch out with just one of her boobs.

    So the pitcher made a bad pitch, it happens, Toronto are trying to win, don't be so delusional (some hope)

    Now, I'm REALLY hoping Judge gets #62 in the next three games ... against the Orioles.

    I can see him easily getting to #65, based on how he can get on a binge.

    Maybe the O's should consider signing her.

    My (hopefully obvious) hyperbolic bluster aside, I’m not sure what to think of it. Obviously it is by design, and the Braves are a high-powered offensive team with a good record. Has the no bunt policy hurt them?

    It’ll be interesting to see a deep, stat-driven dive into it.

    Until then, I’ll reserve judgement. My gut, however, is inclined to agree with you. Excessive bunting is bad, but that doesn’t make no bunting good.

    Hah! [emoji3]

    Mets take one game - I believe they achieve tiebreak with Braves.
    Mets sweep ends it of course....

    Braves sweep will not end it but then Bravos will have tiebreak.

    Here's to an injury free but kick ass series

    Yep! It’s going to be a whole lot of fun.

    Looks like the Mets called up their #1 prospect.

    ESPN did a cool little article on why this may be the most important regular season series in at least a decade.

    Thank God that the league won't have to make the gut wrenching decision now as to whether Judge or the entire Orioles team gets the MVP award!

    Game 1 was a whole lot of fun! Nice outcome, too!

    Scherzer vs. Wright tonight. Mets likely take this one, right?

    It was interesting to see the Red Sox take a break from their prolonged sucking streak to help destroy the O's chances of making the wildcard, and then immediately return to form.

    O's pitched Judge like cowards today.

    Who puts a player with 61 home runs as a lead off batter. Imagine how many home runs Roger Maris could have hit if he was a lead off batter. Yankees didn't try and help him break Ruth's record.

    Yes, the Yankees want to do everything they can to make Judge's contract bigger.

    Angels just signed Ohtani to a one-year $30 million contract to avoid arbitration.

    Nice raise.
