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.

Well, things are not going well for the New York Yankees. Losers of seven straight, including a recent loss in their home ballpark, the Bronx Bombers seemed to be non-existent.

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.

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.

So keep voting for those Yankees. Other Bombers in notable positions are Starlin Castro and Matt Holliday, who both sit in second for their respective positions, and Gary Sanchez, who is in third.

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.

So, there you have it! The Yankees may be losing on the field but sooner or later, those wins will come pouring in. For now, keep the faith and keep an eye on ESNY for your latest Yankees news.
