Aaron Judge: The Verdict Is In

Everything is bigger in New York – but no-one is bigger than Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees’ 6-foot-7, 282-pound slugging outfielder that has taken Major League Baseball by storm. The 25-year-old rookie leads the American League in … well, just about everything, and the “Baby Bombers” are in first place in the American League East. The car-length California native has been nothing short of baseball’s most valuable player this season – as his MLB-best 4.1 WAR attests.


Mad Max Giving Hitters Fits Over the Last Month

No starting pitcher has been more effective lately than Washington Nationals righty Max Scherzer. Over the last 30 days, the 32-year-old Scherzer has the lowest ERA among MLB starters at 1.13, ahead of C.C. Sabathia (1.21), Robbie Ray (1.30), Corey Kluber (1.61) and Brandon McCarthy (1.91). Over that stretch, no starting pitcher has struck out a higher percentage of batters than Kluber (39.7 percent), and no one is allowing a lower batting average against (.132) or has a lower WHIP (0.63), either.

Which Round is it Best to Draft a QB?


Quarterbacks come in all shapes and sizes. Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger is one of the best in the league, and he checks in at 6-foot-5, 241 pounds. Seattle’s Russell Wilson is also part of that elite class, despite being just 5-foot-11 and 206 pounds. New England’s Tom Brady is the best of the lot, and he’s somewhere in between at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds.


New Homes For Veteran Wide Receivers


While many NFL teams will be looking to add new wide receivers to their roster in this week’s draft, several teams already shored up this need via free agency.
