Good to be on top again. We’re still a few weeks away from the All Star Break, but this team is outperforming anyone’s expectations. Half game up on the Sox, the baby bombers are combining power hitting, lengthy starter outings, and clutch performances to put together a cinderella esque start to the season.
Aaron Judge is taking the glory as he certainly deserves. But outside of his monstrous (and fast – which is so stupid to track/promote) homeruns, it’s the middle of the infield that I see deserving the credit. Sterlin and Didi both batting .315 with good pop. Their paths haven’t been easy, and with CC and Chase’s leadership, I don’t see this trend stopping.
