Why Yankees’ Aaron Judge is changing his two-strike approach

Read the whole thing.

Much like Ted Williams espoused, there is a science to hitting, and Judge is a student of the game and his swing.

“I think that is where a lot of guys actually get messed up, with their leg kick,’’ Judge said. “There are so many times I tell myself not to worry about it and still get messed up. My swing is pretty simple the way it is, just with a little leg kick and stuff like that, but there are times in the season I don’t even know what [the front leg] is doing. I feel like I am on time but I keep getting beat so I will have the chance to go back to the no stride, where it is kind of a rock to get into my hip and then swing, it’s simple.

“For me, I can always go back to something simple that will produce results,’’ Judge said. “Just be accurate with the barrel. That’s all I want to do.’’

That is great advice to all hitters.

Expectations Sky-High For Aaron Judge In Year 3

Could be an interesting season:

“See, that’s kind of the thing that drives me, to be honest,” Judge said in front of his George M. Steinbrenner Field locker earlier in spring training. “Nobody really knows. I don’t even know.

“People can speculate and say, ‘He’s like this guy, he’s like that guy.’ But that unknown is kind of what drives me. Like, how good can you be? How good could somebody be? Just having that constant motivation of the unknown is kind of what pushes me.”
.  .  .
“His competition, for me, is in the monuments. His competition, for me, is the history of the Yankees,” said Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, referring to the plaques in Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park.

Aaron Judge would switch positions for Harper, but should he?

Spring training is right around the corner and Bryce Harper still doesn’t have a team to play for. New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is hoping his pitch to Harper works.

The New York Yankees have yet to make that splash free agency signing that fans are accustomed to around this time of year. It’s looking less and less likely that they’ll sign Manny Machado even though the third baseman is holding out hope that the Yankees get back into the race.

Just because they won’t be signing Machado doesn’t mean that they can’t or won’t sign free agent outfielder Bryce Harper. Just imagine the kind of lineup the Yankees could put together by adding a player like Harper.

Is there a reason why they couldn’t trade positions every inning, just to keep the opposition on their toes?
