It was a really nice catch. I just didn't go for him pounding his chest afterwards. I never saw Willie Mays or Paul Blair - two center fielders who were better than Bradley Jr. - do that. And I saw Dave Winfield rob hitters of home runs by jumping and reaching over the fence numerous times with no chest pounding. I guess it's a different time and when players have a high opinion of themselves, humility takes a back seat.

Unfortunately, it's a sign of today's athletes, prevalently seen in football, which started it all.

Dallas Keuchel pitching a rehab game tonight here in Corpus Christi for the Hooks (Astros' 2A team).  

I'm tempted to go, but it's still hotter than hell at this hour of the day, and I think the tickets are sold out and going for a premium.  

That said, it's *NOT* hotter than the time I went to a 51's game in August 2011 in Las Vegas.  They were the 3A team for the Blue Jays then, I think they're the 3A team for the Mets now.  That was ridiculously hot.

I think Judge has been robbed of 2 HRs by an outfielder this season

Aaron Judge snapped out of his power slump last night by hitting a home run that almost went out of Safeco Field:

Judge's mammoth home run

And D-Rob struck out the side in his first appearance as a returned Yankee.

This team may end up at best scrabbling for one of the two wild-card spots, but Judge and Clint Frazier alone are making them a ton of fun to watch.

I have had a couple of people ask me if Judge is juicing.  I hope not but his stats have changed drastically since the minors. He will quiet these claims by doing it again next year.

If he is juicing, and continues to do so next year, he'll not prove he's not juicing by having the same type of perfomance.

Has the guy's physique undergone any noticeable changes since his minor league days?

Just another sign of Judge`s impact on some players ;) ....

According to this article, when Judge played football in high school he was 6:7 and weighed 240 pounds. Eight-nine years on, he's still at 6:7 (or 6:8, by some accounts) and weighs 282 pounds. That kind of growth in a well-trained athlete doesn't seem so unusual to me between the ages of 16 and 25. I'd truly be shocked if he were discovered to be juicing. Aside from his much-improved plate discipline this year, my response to Brad's friends would be that home runs are way up this year across all of MLB. Pitchers say the ball's more tightly wound; whatever the case may be, a lot more of them landing in the seats this season.
