NBA Award Predictions

Kia NBA Most Valuable Player:

Candidates: Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden, and LeBron James

Prediction: Giannis Antetokounmpo

Reasoning: Giannis had an incredible year averaging 29.5 PPG, 13.6 RPG, 5.6 APG, and 1.0 SPG. Giannis also led his Bucks to having the best record in the NBA at 56-17. James Harden and LeBron both had incredible years however, Giannis had the best season in my opinion and did the most for his team.

Kia NBA Rookie of the Year:

Candidates: Ja Morant, Kendrick Nunn, and Zion Williamson

Prediction: Ja Morant

Reasoning: Ja Morant had a great rookie year for the Memphis Grizzlies. Ja averaged 17.8 PPG, 3.9 RPG, and 7.3 APG while taking on the leader of the team. Zion had a great rookie year as well but he did not play enough games or minutes in his rookie year in my opinion to earn this award over Morant. Nunn also had a good year especially since he was undrafted however, his stats were not as good and he did not lead the Heat.

Kia NBA Sixth Man of the Year:

Candidates: Montrezl Harrell, Dennis Schroder, and Lou Williams

Prediction: Lou Williams

Reasoning: Before I get into my reasoning, I am confused as how there are two players from the same team going up for this award. However, I will give this award to Lou Williams. He has pretty much made a career off of this award. In Doc Rivers system, Williams provides solid scoring and defense off the bench. This season he averaged 18.2 PPG, 3.1 RPG, and 5.6 APG. This is a tough award as all three candidates have similar stats.

Kia NBA Most Improved Player:

Candidates: Bam Adebayo, Luka Doncic, and Brandon Ingram

Prediction: Brandon Ingram

Reasoning: This was another tough prediction to make. However, I feel like it should go to Brandon Ingram. Bam Adebayo also broke out and had a great year averaging a double-double. I feel like Luka should not win because he is still a superstar and all he did was just have a better year. He still averaged over 20 PPG and is still the leader of the Mavericks. However, this time he is in the playoffs. Ingram went from being LeBron’s sidekick in Los Angeles to being the best player on a young Pelicans team. Ingram averaged 23.8 PPG, 6.1 RPG, and 4.2 APG. Now throw in a healthy Zion and these two can make a dynamic duo for many years to come.

NBA Coach of the Year:

Candidates: Mike Budenholzer, Billy Donovan, and Nick Nurse

Prediction: Billy Donovan

Reasoning: These coaches are all great coaches. Budenholzer led the Bucks to the best record in the NBA, Nick Nurse led the Raptors to be a strong second seed even without Kawhi Leonard, and Donovan led the Thunder to a 5 seed tied with the Rockets, when it seemed like the Thunder may be rebuilding. Not many people thought the Thunder would make the playoffs especially in a tough Western Conference especially being tied with the team that they traded Russell Westbrook to. In my opinion, Billy Donovan deserves this award the most.

AEW Dynamite Results With Analysis 8/12/20

The Young Bucks vs. The Dark Order (Stu Grayson and Evil Uno)

As The Young Bucks were coming out to the ring, The Dark Order used their strength in numbers against The Young Bucks. Nick Jackson and Stu Grayson started the match for their respected teams. The heels had control in the beginning of the match. Matt Jackson took out some of the members of The Dark Order at ringside. Once Matt Jackson got involved in the match, The Young Bucks were able to take advantage. The Young Bucks used their speed and high flying abilities to their advantage while The Dark Order used a ground-and-pound, physical mentality. Matt Jackson went under the ring at ringside to avoid being surrounded by the members of The Dark Order at ringside until being slammed by Evil Uno. Nick Jackson was tagged and took over the match with strong kicks to both Uno and Grayson. Stu Grayson took out Matt Jackson and threw him into the tunnel. He then ordered The Dark Order members to stand in front of the tunnel blocking Matt from coming back which was smart. This would allow for a 2-on-1 handicap essentially. However, Nick Jackson was able to recuperate and pickup a rollup pin for the three count.

Results: The Young Bucks defeat The Dark Order via pinfall

Grade: B-

Scorpio Sky vs. Cody for the TNT Championship

Cody is accompanied by Arn Anderson, his wife Brandi, Allie, his brother Dustin Rhodes, and QT Marshall. Cody shows off the newly designed TNT Championship as he looks to defend hit title against Scorpio Sky. Sky is a formidable opponent and this match has been hyped up as a potential match of the year candidate. Both wrestlers traded takedowns until Scorpio Sky gained the advantage. Sky showed signs of disrespect as he faked out Cody by holding the middle rope for him until Cody came closer to the ring. Cody got revenge by flexing in front of Sky and then doing the same thing after throwing Sky out of the ring. Cody had the advantage as they went to commercial break. When the commercial break ended, Sky was in control of the match. Cody was able to regain control and pickup the victory. After the match, Brodie Lee appeared on the titantron and announced he will defeat Cody and win the TNT Championship

Results: Cody defeats Scorpio Sky via pinfall to retain the TNT Championship

Grade: A-

Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy) vs. Kenny Omega and Hangman Page for the AEW World Tag Team Championships

As soon as Kenny Omega, came out to the ring he held up his championship in front of Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy. Omega and Jungle Boy started off the match for their respective teams. Omega pinned Jungle Boy against the ropes and then smacked Marko Stunt in the face as he stood on the apron. Jungle Boy then took over and was able to tag Luchasaurus. It appeared that Omega was injured after landing awkwardly. Shortly after, Hangman Page was tagged in. Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy were able to make frequent tags as Luchasaurus was tagged after Jungle Boy started to take a beating. Omega delivered two snap dragons to Luchasaurus then delivered one to Marko Stunt. Jungle Boy flew through the ropes to hit Omega before being hit with a snap dragon by Omega. Luchasaurus was able to take out both Omega and Page. Jungle Boy distracted the ref while Luchasaurus threw Stunt into Omega. The challengers have been picking up numerous nearfalls before Omega broke up a two count. Page threw Jungle Boy into his partner as Omega flew over the ropes taking them both out. Omega and Page hit The Last Call for the win.

Results: Kenny Omega and Hangman Page defeat The Jungle Express to retain the AEW World Tag Team Championships

Grade: A

Monroe vs. Hikaru Shida

Monroe went right after Shida landing a couple of strikes. After Shida went right to work getting a few moves in until Monroe shortly gained advantage and picked up a nearfall. Monroe reversed the Falcon Arrow for another nearfall before tapping out.

Results: Hikaru Shida defeats Monroe via submission

Grade: F

Orange Cassidy vs. Chris Jericho in a $7,000 Obligation Match

In this match, Best Friends and The Inner Circle are banned from ringside. If Jericho wins, Orange Cassidy must pay Jericho $7,000 for the damages to Jericho’s jacket. Cassidy went right after Jericho knocking him down and then out of the ring. Cassidy went for the Superman punch before Jericho took him down with a boot. That was the momentum change Jericho needed. Jericho tried to trick the referee into looking away while Jericho uses the bat, however the recently hired and former WWE referee saw it coming and pulled it away from him. Jericho put his hands on the referee while Cassidy rolled up Jericho for a nearfall. Santana and Ortiz were fighting the Best Friends at the ramp. The referee had his intentions on them while Jake Hager ran to the ring and attacked Cassidy. Cassidy somehow kicked out and was able to pick up the win.

Results: Orange Cassidy defeats Chris Jericho via pinfall

Grade: A

Analysis: This weeks episode of AEW was very good and well booked with the exception of the women’s match. There was no storyline involved and it was the champion against a local competitor. I would give this weeks episode of AEW Dynamite a B.

How COVID-19 is still affecting the MLB Season

Even though the MLB season started, this pandemic is still affecting baseball. Many games and series have had to be postponed due to potential players being exposed and positive tests.

A few Miami Marlins players went to a Gentleman’s Club in Atlanta after a series with the Atlanta Braves. A few days later test results came back and 17 Marlins players tested positive. Anybody that played the Marlins or the teams that played the Marlins also had their games cancelled. The Marlins essentially created a plague all because some players were too immature to stay away from the club.

The St. Louis Cardinals also had some players and staff test positive. They were sent to the hospital immediately. This also led to games and series being postponed between the Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Pirates.

So far we have 17 MLB players opt-out of the season due to this pandemic. Some notable players are Marcus Strowman, Yoenis Cespedes, Felix Hernandez, Lorenzo Cain, Michael Kopech, Buster Posey, and David Price.

It has gotten so bad that the MLB had thoughts about completely cancelling the season. Luckily, they didn’t but if positive tests rise it may have to be a possibility. Even though I would be mad if the season is cancelled I would understand because players and staff’s safety is the most important thing.

Raw Results with Analysis 8/10/20

Seth Rollins vs. Humberto Carrillo

The show began with Samoa Joe hosting the contract signing between Seth Rollins and Dominik Mysterio for their match at SummerSlam. Both Joe and Dominik went off on Rollins. Rollins said Dominik is ungrateful because without him, Dominik would not be a WWE Superstar. Rollins made relatively quick work of the Mexican Superstar after a superkick into a powerbomb and the Stomp. Afterward, Murphy attacked Dominik, and the two trapped the son of Mysterio in the ropes before smacking him with kendo sticks repeatedly. They left welts all over Dominik’s body.

Results: Seth Rollins defeats Humberto Carrillo via pinfall

Grade: B

Andrade vs. Angelo Dawkins; Bianca Belair vs. Zelina Vega

Angelo Dawkins battered El Idolo early with right hands, but Andrade’s singles experience allowed him to quickly grind down the larger man. Zelina Vega tried to interfere, but Bianca Belair attacked her. The distraction allowed Dawkins to hit the Cash Out for the three-count. This quickly transitioned into a match between Belair and Vega. The manager used her speed and ingenuity to get the upper hand on The EST. She did not account for Belair’s stamina, as The EST got back up again and again. A powerbomb from The EST set up the K.O.D. for a dominant win.

Results: Angelo Dawkins defeats Andrade via pinfall; Bianca Belair defeats Zelina Vega via pinfall

Grade: B+

Apollo Crews vs. Shelton Benjamin

MVP called out Apollo Crews on “The VIP Lounge,” demanding an admission that he caused the lights to flicker. The United States champion laughed at the accusation. He rushed the ring and fought off The Hurt Business enough to set up an impromptu match with Shelton Benjamin. Bobby Lashley distracted Crews, allowing Benjamin to get a surprise roll-up to pick up a huge victory.

Results: Shelton Benjamin defeats Apollo Crews via pinfall

Grade: C

The Viking Raiders, Ricochet, Cedric Alexander vs. Akira Tozawa and His Ninjas

Akira Tozawa demanded all his ninjas get into the action instead of him. One of the ninjas refused, and Tozawa decided to bail instead of fight. The Viking Raiders hit the Viking Experience on a ninja for the win. R-Truth rolled up Tozawa on the ramp to take the 24/7 Championship.

Results: The Viking Raiders, Ricochet, and Cedric Alexander defeat Akira Tozawa and his ninjas via pinfall

Grade: D

Liv Morgan (w/ Ruby Riott) vs. Peyton Royce (w/ Billie Kay)

Peyton Royce planted Liv Morgan early with a spin kick. Ruby Riott tried to stop Billie Kay from interfering, but the referee caught only Riott on the apron. The distraction allowed Royce to catch Morgan with the Deja Vu for the victory.

Results: Peyton Royce defeats Liv Morgan via pinfall

Grade: D

Bayley vs. Asuka

Asuka attacked Bayley at the bell, but The Role Model fought back. As the lights flickered, the action raged back and forth. Both women were willing to batter the other for this victory. Sasha Banks distracted the referee to help her best friend and also took cheap shots at The Empress of Tomorrow when she could. The Role Model used every opening to target the legs of Asuka, using a variety of impressive submission transitions. After a sunset bomb into the corner, Bayley mocked Kairi Sane, taking too long. As The Role Model charged at The Empress, she got rolled into the Asuka Lock and quickly tapped out.

Results: Asuka defeats Bayley via submission to earnt he right to face Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Championship at SummerSlam

Grade: A

Randy Orton (w/ Ric Flair) vs. Kevin Owens

The Viper escaped the early onslaught with a thumb to the eye. The two blocked the other’s finisher early and focused on battering each other inside and outside the ring. Orton injured KO badly after throwing him onto the announce table. Owens refused to give up and headbutted The Viper off the top rope to set up a senton bomb. KO was in position for a stunner, but The Viper turned it around into an RKO for the win. Afterward, Orton told Flair to stick around as The Viper had something to say. Orton called out The Nature Boy as a liability. He had forced The Viper into a match because of his ego. He labeled his former friend washed-up and a junkie for the spotlight. Flair told The Viper that he took those words personally. He wanted Orton to know how much he respected his ability and wanted him to break his 16-time world title record. They hugged, but Orton followed through by catching his mentor with a low blow. The Viper punt-kicked The Nature Boy and whispered a final farewell to his friend. Drew McIntyre ran down to make the save. The WWE champion told Orton he would pay for his actions.

Results: Randy Orton defeats Kevin Owens via pinfall

Grade: A+


Analysis: This weeks episode of Raw was good with the exception of the Raw Underground segment and the Liv Morgan-Peyton Royce match. However, the last two matches were very good and well booked. I would give this weeks episode of Raw a B-.

2020 NFL New York Giants Record Prediction

The Giants finished the 2019 season 4-12 and took Andrew Thomas 4th overall. The Giants made many other moves in the offseason such as signing James Bradberry, Blake Martinez, Kyler Fackrell, Dion Lewis, Cooper Rush, Colt McCoy, and drafted Xavier McKinney and Matt Peart.

I expect Daniel Jones and Darius Slayton to also breakout and have a great sophomore season.

The Giants also hired a new coaching staff as they brought in Joe Judge to be the head coach, Jason Garrett as the offensive coordinator, Patrick Graham as the defensive coordinator, Marc Colombo as the offensive line coach, and Freddie Kitchens as the tight ends coach.

I expect the Giants to play a lot better than the previous year but still make the playoffs.

Wins: Bears, Washington, Washington, Cowboys, Bengals, Browns

Losses: Steelers, 49ers, Seahawks, Rams, Cardinals, Cowboys, Eagles, Eagles, Buccaneers, Ravens

I expect the Giants to finish 6-10 next year. However, I think the Giants could potentially beat the Steelers and the Cardinals. In my opinion, I feel like the Giants can win anywhere from 6-8 games next year. This will be an improvement from last year. The Giants are surely but slowly progressing and completing their rebuild.

Smackdown Results with Analysis 8/7/20

Matt Riddle vs. Sheamus

The Celtic Warrior asserted his dominance early by forcing The Barefoot Bro to the corner and wrestling him down to the mat in a side headlock. The MMA practitioner found his way out and began relying on his striking ability to combat Sheamus’ raw power. Riddle tried to employ a few submissions before the former world champion powerbombed him to stop him in his tracks. We returned from a commercial break to see Riddle kick out after taking three consecutive backbreakers. The Bro started to make a comeback and hit several signature moves before one White Noise put him down for a near fall. As Riddle struggled to get up at ringside, Chad Gable attacked him out of nowhere to cause a disqualification. Sheamus watched as Riddle rebounded and beat down the former Olympian. The Celtic Warrior was angry when he found out he lost and made Shorty G pay with a Brogue Kick.

Results: Matt Riddle defeats Sheamus via disqualification

Grade: B-

Cesaro vs. Lince Dorado

Gran Metalik and Shinsuke Nakamura watched the match at ringside cheering on their respective partners. As expected, The Swiss Superman used his significant power advantage to bully the high-flyer as much as he could. It took some creative use of the plexiglass barrier for Dorado to take him down with a hurricanrana. After some back and forth action, Cesaro scored the win with The Gotch Neutralizer.

Results: Cesaro defeated Lince Dorado via pinfall

Grade: C+

King Corbin vs. Jeff Hardy and King Corbin vs. Sheamus

Hardy and Corbin met for a match after The King interrupted Hardy last week. As soon as they locked up, The Charismatic Enigma started unloading with punches to the head. The painted warrior hit a few quick moves for a two-count before the former Golden Gloves fighter drilled him with a right hand of his own. Hardy spent the next few minutes on defense. He was able to make a brief comeback, but Corbin planted him with Deep Six for another two-count. Sheamus ran down and delivered a Brogue Kick to Hardy to cause a disqualification in retaliation for his own loss earlier in the evening. This led to an impromptu match between Sheamus and Corbin after the commercial break. Riddle showed up to cause a distraction that allowed Sheamus to hit his Brogue Kick for the win. The Bro even applauded Sheamus after it was over. 

Results: Jeff Hardy defeats King Corbin via disqualification and Sheamus defeats King Corbin via pinfall

Grade: B

The Miz and John Morrison vs. Heavy Machinery

Tucker and JoMo started for their teams. Tucky took The Friday Night Delight down a few times with a waistlock slam before he laid him out with a straight right hand. He spent a long time in the ring, and it led to The Miz and Morrison taking control for a long period of time. Deville cheered them on while Otis waited for his partner to tag him in. Mr. Money in the Bank was unable to help his partner get the upper hand, but Rose ran down and attacked her former best friend. The ref called for the bell as Otis and Tucker tried to hold Rose back. The two tag teams tried playing peacemakers, but the women would not be held back. They kept breaking free until the show went to a commercial. After the break, everyone could be seen arguing backstage until the lights started flickering. When we went back to the announcers, several people in black hoodies rushed the ring with weapons and started causing mayhem. Retribution sent the crew running before going into the crowd and attacking any wrestlers they could get their hands on.

Results: The match ended in no contest

Grade: C+


Analysis: This weeks episode of Smackdown was alright. It was much better than Raw in my opinion however. I would give this weeks episode of Smackdown a B-.

Best NBA Dynamic Duo

The NBA is no longer in the super team era. Now most of the good teams have two superstars otherwise known as a dynamic duo. There are many good dynamic duos in the NBA. Some of the best in my opinion are Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, Paul George and Kawhi Leonard, Anthony Davis and LeBron James, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Also, John Wall and Bradley Beal, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Kemba Walker and Jayson Tatum, and Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Also, Russell Westbrook and James Harden. There are also many more as well as some in the making.

However, I feel the best dynamic duo currently is LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

In his first season with Anthony Davis, LeBron James is having an amazing season. James averaged 25.4 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 10.3 APG, and 1.2 SPG during the regular season. This season from James made him an MVP candidate. This duo has been exciting to watch and they clicked and have made exciting plays. These two have also led the Lakers to a 51-18 record which is the second best in the league.

In his first season with the Lakers and LeBron, Davis also had a great season. Davis averaged 26.1 PPG, 9.4 RPG, 3.2 APG, 1.4 SPG, and 2.3 BPG. AD is also a defensive player of the year candidate. These two superstars have worked well together and are looking to bring home a championship to Los Angeles for the Purple and Gold.

AEW Dynamite Results with Analysis 8/5/20

12-Man Tag Team Match: The Elite and FTR vs. The Dark Order

A hot start by The Elite and FTR came to a screeching halt, courtesy of a big superkick by Lee that stunned Omega and led to isolation from his tag team partners. A tag to Dax Harwood turned the tide back in the babyfaces’ favor. The action continued, back-and-forth, neither man gaining a considerable advantage. As expected, The Elite showed the best tag team chemistry, the group’s history of partnering together evident. At one point, FTR delivered the Demolition Decapitation to Grayson, but Harwood appeared to injure his knee. The ringside trainer, Cash Wheeler and Hangman Page helped Harwood to the back, leaving their teammates to fend for themselves against the driven and determined Dark Order unit. The commentary team shined a light on the peculiar actions of Page, questioning why he wouldn’t allow Wheeler to accompany Harwood on his own. Cabana delivered a big splash at one point and nearly scored the pinfall victory over Matt Jackson. Matt fended off the onslaught of his competition, dropped 5 with a cutter and inched closer to his partners. Uno, though, pulled Nick to the floor and delivered a belly-to-belly that took him out of the equation. Page returned just in time to receive the hot tag from Matt and exploded into the match, laying waste to any and everyone around him. His run came to a crashing halt when Lee exploded through the ropes with a tope suicida and wiped him out on the floor. Cabana tagged in and nearly earned the win over Page, but Omega broke up the fall. The 450 splash/corner cannonball by Grayson and Uno failed to put Page down for the count, too. The Bucks returned to the match and uncorked a series of superkicks, including one to Lee, right into a snapdragon by Omega. Lee recovered, delivered a big clothesline and scored the win for his team.

Results: The Dark Order defeated FTR and The Elite via pinfall

Grade: A+

Best Friends vs. Santana and Ortiz

Trent scored a near-fall for himself and partner Chuck Taylor with a bridging Northern Lights suplex on Santana early. Heading into the break, Trent and Taylor delivered stereo clotheslines and then followed with a tornado DDT to Ortiz before engaging in the fan-favorite hug. During the break, the babyfaces continued their roll until Santana grounded Trent and applied a single-leg Boston Crab. Back from the commercial, Trent looked to fight back, but Santana sent him crashing into the guardrail. After several moments of a focused attack on his back, Trent created separation and tagged Taylor into the match. Taylor hoisted Trent onto his shoulders, and in an electric chair spot, Best Friends brought Ortiz crashing to the mat with a superplex. Later, as it appeared Santana and Ortiz were setting up for the Street Sweeper, Taylor blasted the former and Trent scored a roll-up for the win.

Results: Best Friends defeat Santana & Ortiz via pinfall

Grade: B

Cody and Matt Cardona vs. John Silver and Alex Reynolds

Cardona and Cody rolled early, but a miscalculation on the champion’s part left him nursing a rib injury while isolated from his partner. Silver and Reynolds picked away at Cody, hoping to cut the ring off from him and pick up the win without having to deal with Cardona. The Dark Order tandem’s control of the match continued throughout the break as Cody struggled to break free of their grasp. Silver teed off on Cody with a barrage of kicks before The American Nightmare flattened him with a snap powerslam. Cardona finally received the hot tag and unloaded on the competition in what was his first in-ring action since his release from WWE in April. He downed Reynolds with a double under-hook powerbomb for two. With Cody hurt, Dark Order momentarily regained the upper hand. Silver and Cody fell over the top rope and to the arena floor, leaving Cardona to deliver Radio Silence on Reynolds for the win.

Results: Cody and Matt Cardona defeat John Silver and Alex Reynolds via pinfall

Grade: B

Big Swole vs. ‘Reba’

In order to get her much-desired match with Dr. Britt Baker, Big Swole would have to take on an opponent of her rival’s choice. That opponent: “Reba,” known to literally everyone but Baker as former TNA Knockout Rebel. The right-hand woman of Baker struggled to rediscover her in-ring skills, succumbing to Dirty Dancing as Swole rolled to victory.

Results: Big Swole defeated ‘Reba’ via pinfall

Grade: C-

Jon Moxley vs. Darby Allin for the AEW World Championship

An intense, physical start to the AEW Championship match between Jon Moxley and Darby Allin saw the champion manhandle the face-painted enigma, bloodying his mouth and driving his elbow into Allin’s chest. The challenger answered with an arm drag off the top rope and a dropkick but ate the steel post heading into the break, leaving the champion standing tall. During the break, Moxley wore Allin down in the ring, working a single-leg Boston Crab before floating over into a Regal Stretch, undoubtedly an ode to the man who had a major influence on him during his time in WWE developmental. Allin answered by flipping his opponent the bird, almost stunning the champion with his brashness. Allin caught Moxley and speared him through the ropes. A sliding tope suicida through the bottom ropes wiped out Mox. Allin targeted the right hand of Moxley, taking away his striking advantage, and launched himself off the top rope with a plancha. Allin followed up with a Code Red for a near-fall. Moments later, Wardlow appeared, hopping up on the apron in an attempt to distract the official. MJF rolled into the ring, blasted Moxley with the AEW title and escaped. Allin, unaware of what happened, launched himself off the top rope with a Coffin Drop, but the champion kicked out. His face painted with the crimson of his own blood following the belt shot, Moxley struggled to regain his fighting form as Allin attacked from all angles. Another Coffin Drop proved ill-advised, though, as Moxley caught him and looked to put him to sleep with a choke. Allin again flipped him off, and Moxley delivered a piledriver. Moxley, frustrated, reluctantly delivered the Paradigm Shift for the win.

Results: Jon Moxley defeated Darby Allin via pinfall to retain the AEW World Championship

Grade: A+

Analysis: This was a great card on this weeks episode of AEW. My two favorite matches was the 12-man tag and the main event. I would give this weeks episode of AEW a B+.

Why Aaron Judge is an early MVP Favorite

Aaron Judge has started off the 2020 campaign hot. The Yankees are first in their division with a 10-6 record. Part of the reason the Yankees are so good is because of Judge.

Judge is currently hitting .272 which is not amazing but also not terrible. However Aaron Judge is tied with Fernando Tatis Jr. for most homeruns with 8 and leads the MLB in RBI’s with 19. Judge has been one of the most best players in the league so far. Most of his homeruns and RBI’s have come when the Yankees were trailing. If he continue to dominate on offense he should be an MVP candidate.
