    could be. Looking at the stats, 1987 was the first 4,000+HR season and there were not 4,000+ homers again until 1993 so it seems a juiced ball year.

    You're right, he very well could win the AL MVP
    Yankees single-season strikeout king and being about 20 away Judge could set a MLB strikeout record but I think it's unlikely given the number of games left and he'll probably be given a few games breather as the season winds down now that he's set the rookie HR record.

    Strikeouts mean nothing in MVP voting anymore. Trout won the MVP in 2014, led the league in strikeouts and set the Angels season record for strikeouts.

    He was terrible after the All-Star break, but he's been ultra hot again when it counts in September.
    I said that to my brother yesterday. Trout has slowed and Altuve has been decent but not great. I'd give it to Judge if the season ended today.

    Considering the fact he only has 382 at-bats thru 108 games played this year, I do not believe Trout deserves to win the MVP. Yes, his stats are still excellent for having played such a short time but when you consider that the Angels likely aren't making it to the postseason I just don't see him winning it. I think his biggest competition will be Jose Altuve

    Boggs hit 24 in 87' I think. I think that was his only year where he got double digits in home runs. I could be wrong.

    Imagine Judge on steroids?

    Who knows. The doping labs probably have some compounds they can give athletes that aren't detectable by MLB's drug testing labs... yet. It would be interesting if MLB kept a Judge A and B sample for 10 years and tested it using the drug test technology that is available 10 years from now and see if it's clean or doped.

    I'd imagine judge is clean, his strike out total suggests he isn't holding much back and he's so big and strong if he gets close to barrelling a ball it's gone. I guess the same could have been said for big Mac though.
    Makes me vomit a bit but judge is a real likely candidate for ROY and MVP. I think the exciting pick is Judge, whether it's right or wrong I would debate. Altuve has been really good but for some reason it feels ho hum, the Angels struggles down the stretch and Trout's missed time will likely cost him, even though I'm a firm believer no one has a bigger impact on his teams' success.

    Congrats to Judge. I still think he hits 52 this year.
