I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Aaron Judge with a price of $31. What do you think?

The drop in slugging seems to result from a drop in launch angle. Still, he was a fearsome hitter. They were talking him up last night on the MLB network as next year's MVP.

What should his bid limit be?

The AB ended for Judge 27 times on a 3-1 pitch. Twenty of these were ball four. The seven times he swung and put the ball in play, he hit two singles and two doubles.

No homers, surprisingly.

One day an astronaut will find that ball he hit in the first inning tonite.

Headline of the front and back covers of the New York Post: TEAR DOWN THIS WALL! When you flatten the paper out, you see the entire Green Monster. Various Yankees are rappelling down it, others climbing it on ladders. Judge is in the foreground, pointing to it with his bat.

Sometimes Rotoworld is incomprehensible:

Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Aaron Judge (wrist) was a little sore about doing some throwing on Friday.

The hope was that maybe Judge would be able to do some dry swings in addition to his throwing, but he's not quite ready to push his wrist like that. The original timetable indicated that Judge could be back within three weeks, but it's not likely that a return won't happen until September.

Has taken a called strike three on a full count 13 times, most in the majors. Has swung and missed 15 times. Has taken ball four 26 times. All told, he's taken the count to 3-2 in 81 plate appearances, which may also be the most in the majors.

His slash stats with the count full: .218/.469/.418.

.174 avg .387 OB% vs lefties. Only the best of the lefties pitching to him perhaps.

Yanks rank first in the majors in homers and walks. On the pitching side, they’re second in the AL in fewest home runs allowed, eighth in fewest walks allowed.

It adds up to a Beane Count of 12.0, best in the majors.

Next best?

If you guessed  the Red Sox, you were wrong. Red Sox aren’t even second best in the AL.

Astros 16.0, Red Sox 21.0.

Fourth best in the AL: the underachieving Indians (23.0).

Still, the Beane Count, which ranks each league by the standings in just these four categories (HR, BB, HR allowed, BB allowed), does a very nice job of expressing the actual standings.

Of course, It should be called the Earl Weaver count.
