Journalist Jon Heyman raves that ‘Judge’s year is one of the best ever’
Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani and Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge are in a heated battle against the AL MVP. There are voices pushing on every side, and predictions and prospects for the MVP race are featured every day in various US media outlets.
Under such circumstances, MLB Network reporter John Heyman, who also writes a column for the New York Post, a local media outlet in New York, home of the Yankees, recommended the judge, who hit 59 home runs until now, as MVP, and in response to Otani’s voice, “West Coast patronage,” he pointed out.
In a New York Post article, Hayman said, “Judge’s year is one of the best ever. Heyman, who has covered MLB for many years, said: “I’ve covered the sport for so long that I’m chasing (current Yankees manager Aaron Boone’s father) Bob Boone as a player, but this year I’m ‘ I’ve never seen an activity like a judge),” he said.
It’s true that Judge has hit 59 homers so far, and the Yankees are still leading the American League East, although they’ve slowed down. Judge leads the Yankees to the district championship, and Hayman’s reporter also said, “Judge sends a season like Roger Maris, beating about four minutes more than him, and unlike Maris, he’s behind. There’s no no Mickey Mantle in. In 1961, he scored a .269 batting average with 61 home runs and 141 RBI, compared to all-time hard hitters.
