A left handed batter hitting a 102.8 mph pitch for a homer off LHP Chapman, that is crazy.


Already a 1 WAR player at age 20 with a month + left in the season.. Crazy.

Related but unrelated. I traded Bryce Harper in a keeper league for Quintana, Cole, Kimbrel, Iglesias (players to help win this year) but also got Bellinger and Devers (both legit keeper options to help win this year and in the future). I was hesitating to trade one of the best players on the planet but these two guys are STUDS.

Aaron Judge has been horrible since the home run derby. Only batting .184 with a strikeout in 30+ consecutive games.

Home Run Derby ruins swings or simple regression?

I think it's mostly the latter. Literally no one is pointing out major swing flaws from him, and his contact/HR/Fly ball rates were all screwy in the first half.

Agreed. Mostly the latter. The fact is, people do the derby because of their torrid first half pace. A lot of them regress, but that's expected in 162 game season.

Dude was on a 70 homer pace in the first half. He is getting back to the norm.
