The Yankees are on a nice roll, and we all want it to stay that way. There is a lot of hope and excitement for the rest of the season, and a lot of that has to do with Aaron Judge.

After this season, Judge will be a free agent and he's having one hell of a year before he becomes a free agent. So far nothing is standing in his way to earning a big pay day and breaking records on his way out. Or is there?

According to Chris "Mad Dog" Russo the Yankees may be in his way, you can check it out HERE if you want to catch up on his analysis. I must admit, it is an interesting take. I will leave it at that but he says the Yankees will never let him break the home run record.

"There is no chance. The Yankees won’t let him get near it. No chance he’s making it to 61 home runs. None...I think they’re worried. They’re paying him so much money. They’re worried about wearing a player out. They’re worried about somebody getting hurt. They’re worried about pitch counts, and overload as far as 162 games, but it’s a major problem with the sport."


Look, I don't care about him beating Roger Maris' record or getting close to Babe Ruth either. If he makes it there and is still productive and healthy while helping us get back to the World Series then that is icing on the cake for me. It is hard for me to imagine though. It would be nice to see though. What Yankee fan wouldn't like to see an epic record broken? That's something that sticks with us.

But what would be nicer to see is the Yankees continuing to win while staying healthy and winning a 28th title. That is the most important part after all. If the Yankees want to rest him at some point to make sure he is good for the postseason also....then I wouldn't be mad about that either, especially if it turns out to be the right move.

"Mad Dog" can think what he this point, I really don't care about records. I only care about a World Series championship. I'm tired of the drought.
