There’s always something good to talk about, no matter how badly the New York Yankees are playing during this rough stretch of the season.
Except for the usual hero, right fielder Aaron Judge. Judge launched his own home run during last night’s game but before the game, he was given the opportunity to take his monster home runs to the Midsummer Classic.
Aaron Judge said that he hasn't decided if he'll hit in the Home Run Derby. "I'm more focused on what I can do for the team right now.”

As Bryan Hoch reported on Twitter, Judge isn’t sure if he’ll accept the invite to the Home Run Derby.
Of course, everyone has an opinion when it comes to whether or not Judge should participate. Whining about it ruining his swing, causing a mid-season slump, etc.
Well, Judge has a good head on his shoulders. Let the man do what he wants to do. After all, in Judge we trust.
At least we know we’ll see Judge in the All-Star game, as he is still leading all American League outfielders in votes, according to the voting update that surfaced yesterday.

A former All-Star, Jacoby Ellsbury will get his first taste of full baseball action before tonight’s game. Ellsbury is reported to be taking full batting practice with the Yankees after working out for the past week.
