Aaron Judge now leads the AL in batting average. What the fuck.
Imagine hitting #60 and taking the lead in the triple crown in the same swing
What the fuck
Imagine people still arguing for someone else to win the MVP?
I think we officially just passed the point where even the most ardent Ohtani supporters have to admit it's going to Judge.
I'm a die hard Yankee hater and even I have to admit he's the MVP.
There’s no way you don’t give the MVP to someone who hits 60 home runs AND might win the triple crown. That’s mythological status. Type of seasons they talk about 50 years from now.
Aaron Judge slg - .703
League average *ops* - .708
THAT is a crazy statistic
First blue jays flair upvote of the season
Thank you for your sacrifice, that must have been very difficult for you.
I didn’t burst into flames so it went better than expected
My person point was if Judge hit 55, but him leading the AL in OBP, RBI, OPS, and War gave it to him. I love Ohtani, I’m sure he’ll win MVP again if he does it again. But we’re witnessing the best hitting season since the steroid era.
He's going to win the triple crown despite not being a horse
Edit: [Better than Mantle](https://youtu.be/v9C8HuwTC7Y)
Can we confirm he’a not at least *part* horse?
He got that horse in him
Mr. Hands, no!
60-HR seasons through 147 team games
Year / Player | HR | Pace* | Year-End Total
2001 Barry Bonds|64|70.5|73
1998 Mark McGwire|62|68.3|70
2022 Aaron Judge|60|66.1|??
1999 Sammy Sosa|59|65|63
1998 Sammy Sosa|58|63.9|66
1961 Roger Maris|56|61.7|61
1999 Mark McGwire|56|61.7|65
2001 Sammy Sosa|55|60.6|64
1927 Babe Ruth|54|56.6|60
*Several of these seasons featured 163 team games due to ties, and the players hit home runs in the final game. However, the pace here is calculated over a 162-game season, or 154 for Ruth.
60 home runs is genuinely so absurd to think about.
besides for the 3 guys who did it 6 times over 4 years with chemical assistance, it hasnt happened in 61 years. LOT of individual seasons of a LOT of great players in those 61 years. wild.
It taking 61 years to cleanly break the record of 61 home runs in a season is such a perfect baseball stat.
and that record was set in 1961
So 7 more games to get one HR (to break Ruth’s record in 154 games)
Judge*, coming to a theater near you
Starring Barry Pepper as Aaron Judge and Tom Jane as Mickey Mantle. Directed by Billy Crystal.
Setting the steroid-free record in 154 games would be absolutely incredible
Yes. This is what I’m hoping for. Maris’s record always was looked at with an asterisk because of the 162 game season. So if Judge can beat both 60 in 154 and also hit 62 then he’s checked all the boxes.
Can he also add a Triple Crown to it as well? Here’s hoping!
Wowow I totally forgot sosa hit 60+ 3!!!! Times
And never led the league in HR
The juiced up HR competition between him and McGwire was fun to watch though.
Everyone always says that but never mentions Ken Griffey Jr. It was a three horse race for a while. Griffey always was a few behind but still kept pace most of the season. Ended on 56 two years in a row. And he was a way more fun player than the other 2
Yeah KGJ was far more fun than them
sammys HR jump was my favorite. loved griffey too
Brought the sport and league back into the limelight after the strike left a sour taste in everyone’s mouths. It’s a shame those guys will never get the credit, even though Selig is in the Hall of Fame and had no problem with them juicing when they were pulling in insane viewership.
3rd fastest to 60
interesting to see almost all these guys outperformed their pace
BRIAN + HAL PLEASE PAY THE MAN
This has to be the most successful example of someone betting on themselves ever
ELITE Quarterback Joe Flacco would like to have a word with you
3rd in the league in passing yards after Sunday’s games Joe Flacco?
Super Bowl Champion Joe Flacco?
Same amount of rings as Aaron Rodgers Joe Flacco?
One inch shorter than Aaron Judge Joe Flacco ?
2008 Pepsi Next Rookie of the Year Joe Flacco?
Down 2 scores with less than 2 to play with no time outs, wins the game Joe Flacco?
Not before Lamar Jackson signs his new deal
Pete Rose has entered the chat
We're gonna need him to prove he's the real deal first.
Hal's gonna get Gaddafi'd if he lets Judge walk
This was faster than MLB.com box tracker wtf
Never underestimate the speed of those who are willing to get first post!
Plz ignore the scoreboard
Edit: LOOK AT THE SCOREBOARD RIGHT NOW!
How are they going to show THIS ONE on Yankees Classics?
Posts made moments before disaster
I think a Stanton walk off grand slam might do it.
Oh I think they might show it on Yankees Classics
Yeah it'll be on now holy shit
Just u wait....
....okay, you win.
Actually Yankees win
With a walk off grand slam after it
Can we show this comment on Yankees Classics? ❤️
It's okay, we get the walk-off now.
edit : told ya
Holmes blew it so they would pitch to Judge. Great teammate.
Or don't. That score and no men on is why he got a pitch to hit!
It's also why there's so many empty seats there. Imagine leaving early to miss #60
Edit: and now they missed a walk off grand slam. Brutal
I'd be kicking myself if I did that lmao. Craziness. Not quite the 62 but still. I guess beating the traffic, even be it public transit is tempting
told myself I’d leave after Judges last at bat cause watching the 9th in a 4 run game isn’t worth the nightmare subway ride, but I’m still here and glad I am
I'd say that it was DEFINITELY worth your time staying now lol
Still the first guy in over 60 years to hit 60 in the AL.
My boy is at the game. Took a piss break during the AB.
Reminds me of my friend who took a bathroom break right before boone’s HR in the 03 ALCS. He started peeing right before that pitch and was still peeing when the game was over lol
Of all the times to take a piss lol
Tank for ~~Tua~~ Judge
As soon as the Pirates went up by 4 in the 8th and the Yankees ensured Judge's next AB would have nobody on, I knew he was going to go yard.
The only scoreboard that matters is the one with 60 on it
but we can talk about the Phillies/Blue Jays game later
But also, good for Judge. Happy for him.
I am also happy for Judge, at least there was some good this game between #60 and Bader coming back and playing well
It's an amazing moment for an amazing player. No matter what team we support, we gotta give him a round of applause.
Edit: Holy shit, what an amazing win.
But that's the best part of this video
EDIT: The pirates are causing pain to more than just Pirates fans tonight...
Well Stanton just walked it off so...
This hasn’t even happened yet, is this /u/PSGAcademy
that guy is nuts
That guy is faster than my TV lmao
Damn that name made me second-guess what sub I was on. A true r/soccer legend
u/CurryBacon’s legacy in shambles
This is almost as impressive as OP uploading this about 3 seconds after the ball landed.
[He's the new batting leader too!!! So currently he has the Triple Crown!](https://www.reddit.com/r/NYYankees/comments/xjkkha/game_thread_pirates_yankees_september_20_2022/ipa3k6v)
Is this the most HRs anyone has ever had while holding the Triple Crown? I know Mantle's 52 HRs is the most in an actual Triple Crown season, but has anyone with 61+ HRs actually led the Triple Crown at any point? I know Maris didn't, Sosa didn't, and Bonds didn't, so I guess nobody has.
[Mantle's 52 is the record](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triple_Crown_(baseball\))
There's not a lot of seasons to check for guys with 60+ HRs
Pfft, everyone knows the real triple crown is AVG/OBP/SLG
...Oh shit, he has the lead in all of those too.
Judge’s BRef page just gonna be all black
Middle middle to Judge on 3-1 is certainly a vibe
He threw one down the dick 0-0 too. Guy just didn’t have any control
How am I a 34 year old baseball fan that’s never heard ‘down the dick’ until now?
Thank you for your contribution to my life. I will be using this as often as appropriate from now on.
> 60 Home runs. Let’s see someone match that.
- Babe Ruth
>> 60 Home runs. Let’s see some other son of a bitch match that.
>- Babe Ruth
"It was generally agreed that no other son of a bitch ever would."
Kay shoulda said that on air. No balls.
Kay kept repeating it and I was like *that’s not the real quote*
It took drugs and then a literal giant… and whatever the hell got into Roger Maris in ‘61
hell yes the replay of this will forever show the Pirates winning
Well, the video clip will show them winning, temporary as it was
Pirates fans come get your boy
Hes already dead
Still time for a walk off
From your lips....
To ~~God's~~ Judge's ears
To Stanton’s bat more like!
Thank you! <3
this game ain't over yet
Now it is, LMFAO.
Aaaaand that's what we call a jinx, /u/TheCaptainandKing
Especially now! Based loaded nobody out
holy. what a game
Stanton up now with the bases loaded, 0 out, now 8-5
*so you're saying there's a chance?*
Edit: AND IT'S A WALKOFF GRAND SLAM FOR STANTON
That ball had a family
All time r/baseball comment
Denied by stanton
History is written by the victors
Giancarlo "Victor" Stanton
The log cabin is built by the victor
This lasted about 7 minutes
Lol bro, why would you do this
This aged well
You were saying...?
Giancarlon Stanton has entered the chat
Aged like fine milk baby!!
That might be one of the sexiest, most satisfying home runs I’ve ever seen. What a swing 😍
That’s been damn near every single one. His swing has been gorgeous this year, and definitely part of why he’s knocking them like this.
It really has. He's so locked in. If he times *anything* right its crushed.
Literally just switched over from the Jays game and boom. Amazing.
This man is going to get PAID
HE IS NOW LEADING IN BATTING AVERAGE
Judge is at 316, Bogaerts 315, Arraez 314!!!
Babe wake up, Judge has as many home runs as you.
Is this the thread?
All these Judge threads look the same.
in before stickied “This is the one.”
The pitch version of 'fuck it'
All these Aaron Judge ties Babe Ruth threads look the same
chills. there’s something mindboggling about seeing a 60 in anyone’s HR column, we’re literally witnessing history being written in front of us.
He sensed Schwarber hit 40, and realized someone was within 20, and that couldn't stand
On a serious note, i feel so lucky to have seen this happen, i thought that first strike was his pitch to hit, and he'd just walk, but thank goodness we got to see that.
3-1 down the cock will do!
What a way to lose to the Pirates!
Edit: WERE FUCKING BACK
Edit: Told you
Losing the battle so that you can win this war 😎
¿Por qué no los dos?
I'm sure the apple announcers would be stoked in their calling of this shot /s
Now they might get 61 or 62 though
Fuck that, he's gonna hit both tomorrow.
In an unrelated coincidence I'll also be in attendance tomorrow.
Heard on the radio earlier that if you get checked for prostate cancer outside section 220 tomorrow you'll get tickets to 2 games next year.
Idk if you need to be a male over 40, but if you are it's an awesome deal
Good News: Here are tickets to two games next year.
Bad News: You might want to write them in your will.
Enjoy the game!
They still have a chance calling #61, #62, and/or #63
That Apple tv game isn’t till friday lmao this was the YES network crew
Yeah I think he's saying the apple TV guys are happy they won't be broadcasting when he can hit 60. But he could hit 62 on the apple TV cast...
Lmao I really wonder what the idea was behind that pitch.
3-1 up by 4 runs… pretty simple. Respect to Crowe for challenging
I've seen this comment in every thread for Judge's past 20 home runs.
Up by four runs, a homer is functionally the same as a walk in this spot, might as well try to get him out.
Pitcher has balloon sized balls so he decided to do everyone a favour and groove one
> PIT 8 | NYY 5
THAT'S MY TUNGSTEN ARM O'DOYLE MVP
^also ^ties ^Babe ^Ruth’s ^HR ^record
edit: THANK YOU GIANCARLO STANTON
...or maybe its the start of a comeback...
EDIT: No maybe about it!
Happy for Judge even though I am a Red Sox fan. This is a hell of a season. And as far as I am concerned the first legit 60 hr season since 1961.
First non steroid 60 home run season in 61 years
That's crazy. He's gonna break the record of 61, that happened in '61, 61 years ago.
What the fuck.
A Very baseball stat haha
Also of course Maris wore #9 and Judge wears #99
he's hitting #61 tomorrow and 62 before friday, count it
Absolutely fantastic, not only do I hope he hits 62+ but I also hope he wins the Triple Crown. He’s having one of the greatest offensive seasons of all-time and deserves it!
Holy fuck we really just blew it. What a way to be part of history
Such rich history between our two teams, I wouldn’t want it to be anybody else
Even counting steroid users, he's only the sixth player to have a 60 HR season. That's rarer than a perfect game, an unassisted triple play, or hitting two grand slams in a game.
#Aaron Judge hit 60 and it wasn’t even the best homer of the night!
He’s now leading the AL in average too 👀
Babe Ruth. Roger Maris. Aaron Judge. WOW.
What a season. We're looking at 60+ HRs, a 200+ OPS+ and wRC+, 10+ bWAR and fWAR, and a shot at the Triple Crown. Truly a season for the ages.
Edit: if he can win the Triple Crown, it'd be the most HRs in a Triple Crown season, surpassing Mantle's 52 HRs in 1956.
so cool that it’s a yankee doing it after babe and maris
Congrats you won
Easiest 15k karma of op's life
With this homer, Judge is currently leading the AL in batting average. He's now in first place in all three Triple Crown categories.
He did it, the crazy son of a bitch did it
That was a great game, ended by a very depressing, but rather expected outcome...
Unless you're a Yankees fan, then I'm sure it was a great time all around.
GET IN HERE
#EVERYBODY GET IN HERE
I'M STRAIGHT UP NOT HAVING A GOOD TIME BUT ALSO KINDA HAVING A GOOD TIME
I’M HERE NOW WHAT
JUDGE GOT 60! CONGRATS, BUT GO PIRATES
edit: bruh, you had one job, Pirates!
