Let’s remember we’re talking about a .294 hitter with 35 homers and an OPS of 1.037 – on August 10th. It appeared a few days ago that Judge realized what was causing his prolonged slump, and that he believed adjustments would soon be made. “The last couple of weeks, I got off my approach, and when you get off your approach here in the major leagues, people...
