its odd for a man with 45 (46) homeruns to have more runs than rbis...is it not?

 

I was going 2 say he prob. struggles with runners in scoring position but Judge is hitting .255 so yea its real odd.

Not when he has 115 walks , more probable than not.   Look at Barry Bonds.......300 more runs than RBI in his career and he hit 762 HR

I think it's more of a testament to his on base abilities. Only rook to have 100 runs/rbis/walks with 45 bombs 

Yup, what Rich said ☝️

This is just off the cuff but I think he's a 2nd rounder next year (maybe even a late 1st, depending on league size). 25-year-old with the most raw power in the game who's coming off a 48-50 HR season? No way he slips to the 3rd or 4th.

I think Stanton showed he's still tops in raw power

Judge hits them further and harder than Stanton ever has. Stanton's never had his raw power. 

probably nitpicking, but disagree there.  It almost seemed like when Judge was going off, that it urged Stanton to be even greater.

 

Nonetheless Judge is a sure fire top 15 pick.

This.  It was at the same time, too, the reporters in Miami kept asking Stanton about Judge.  Seems like Stanton said F it, I'll show this kid who's boss.

Judge indisputably hits them harder and further. This is proven, not a matter of opinion. Venture over to baseballsavant or another site with the Statcast data if you disagree.

 

Judge has now hit more homers in his rookie season than Stanton ever has prior to this year, too. So I'd temper the "Stanton showed him who's boss" rhetoric. 

 

And Judge has also had a better all-around year than Stanton from a statistical standpoint, too. So in his rookie year he's already outperformed Stanton's best ever season.

Yeah, he's right there as well. But Judge has arguably had the better season.

i think 2 things hurt judge

 

writers dont love voting for yankees... and that bad month and a half he had.

 

who knows, maybe he finishes his last week strong and voters give it to him.
