Aaron Judge will have to wait for another game to be able to beat the record of 61 home runs ( Roger Maris in 1961). It was last Tuesday when “El Juez” hit homer 60 to match Babe Ruth’s historic mark, but he couldn’t break the record in the next match against Boston Red Sox.
New York Yankees need Aaron Judge to break the drought of 13 years without winning the title. This year, the team have the second-best record in the American League, however, the coach Aaron Boone has reiterated that a better job can still be done on offense.
New York Yankee’s player will be a free agent for the first time in his career at the end of the current season and the 30-year-old outfielder demands a historic contract after a season of such proportions. “Whether we’re at full strength and everyone’s going, that’s huge. And right now, we’re struggling a little and have guys down. His level of consistency and production are the reason we’re in this position,” Aaron Boone said last week. “We know his worth and what he means,”Randy Levine (Yankee’s president) said on “The Show” podcast with The Post’s Joel Sherman and Jon Heyman.
Regular season ends in two weeks and probably Judge will be able to overcome Roger Maris and stay in the MLB history books. Postseason will start on October 7 and we will see which team manages to rise to glory and win the trophy.
