This is a question that has not yet been answered.
Can anyone stop Aaron Judge?
Or for that matter, can anyone stop the New York Yankees?
The team thanks the red-hot for a crazy start to the Jazz, who have already scored 14 home runs and are batting.315.
A four-hit, two-homer game against the Baltimore Orioles helped keep him warm and keep the Yankees on track to win.
In fact, the judge is in some elite company right now thanks to his hot start.
A Yankees analyst noted that the judge is on 14 homers through the first 36 games for the second time in his career.
The other time he did it was in 2017.
The only Yankee who has done this at least twice is Bebe Ruth.
This is the second time Aaron has hit 14+ HR in the first 36 games of the judging team season (also in 2017).
The only other Yankee who has performed 2 or more times is Bebe Ruth (1926, 1928, 1930).

The judge slowly but surely puts his name next to some of the greatest figures in Yankees history.
He’s hitting home runs at a fast pace, just as he did in his 2017 Rocky promotion.
That year, he won the AL Rookie of the Year and was not far from winning the MVP award.
This year, he is tearing it down and could be the primary nominee for the MVP award.
It’s great to be in the same company as Ruth in anything.
The judge is proving what kind of player he can be if he is healthy.
If he stays healthy and keeps numbers like this, he could easily win an MVP award.
There is probably no hotter heater in the world than the judge at the moment.
He is running the house like someone else’s business and is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon.
We’ll see if this translates into an MVP season.
