Last night he did, you just have to be patient, he goes on hot streaks when he’s not injured half the time…..

Yup, he'll hit 10 in a week

That one last night was a laser beam.

My prediction was just on a delay, that's all!

EV like 118, that was gone in a blink….I would have guessed even faster…..

No one smokes em like he smokes em

I'm good if he wants to save the hot streak for a couple of weeks. however.
He’s certainly capable of it, but I don’t know what happened to him, in general. He’s not that old, but he has badly regressed this season. He was never going to win a batting title but a .210BA this year?? He used to be a pretty good hitter(still has a .264 career BA). Career lows in BA, OBP, SLG, OPS, OPS+ & WAR in 2022. Also he can’t play in the field, right? It’s going to be a long 6(?) more years of that deal.

He played a ton in the field earlier in the season (and did a capable job) and right up until the ASB he was top 10 in HR and RBI, but then he made his bi-monthly trip to the IL and has not really been able to get back in the groove.

I"ve said it before, I've never seen a guy who can look so bad and so good, in the same game, and sometimes within the same AB.

Well Judge got me $72.50 by hitting his 60th homer... So there's that. Why didn't I bet more!

Pretty gutless pitcher last night, down 11-2 and throwing a 3-0 changeup in the dirt to Judge.......

I know he's missed time but I didn't realize Michael Wacha was having such a good season. 11-1, 2.61 era and a 1.03 WHIP.

Not much has worked out for the Sox this year, but Wacha has been a revelation. He went from an afterthought as a signing to a guy that will certainly receive a qualifying offer.

Can Aaron Judge get 24 more total bases and reach 400 for this season?

can't say there was much to be optimistic about the Wacha signing at the time. He's been a very pleasant surprise.

His stuff hasn't looked great tonight but he's limited the damage

FOX announcer seriously just called Brasier the most reliable reliever behind Schreiber... and he promptly blows the lead.
