The New York Yankees had five All-Stars accumulating stats in Tuesday’s All-Star Game.
The American League won 3-2, and the Bombers had several contributions on that victory.
The biggest contribution, however, came from Giancarlo Stanton: his two-run home run tied the game in the fourth frame.
He was later declared the MVP of the hotly contested affair.
Media members, talking to Judge, questioned him about his teammate’s performance.
Stanton Has Been Doing This For A While
If you are a Yankees fan, you will love Judge’s response.
“‘I’ve been seeing that all year. That’s nothing new.’ – Aaron Judge on Giancarlo Stanton’s home run,” SNY tweeted, with a short video of that segment of the interview.

Not only has he seen it all year, he has seen it a lot since Stanton joined the Yankees.
The slugger belted 38 home runs in 2018, and while he suffered lots of injuries in 2019 and 2020, he rebounded last year with 35 blasts.
He already has 24 round-trippers.
The two sluggers have 57 long balls between them in 2022, and there will be plenty more in the second half.
In fact, Stanton, who has enjoyed much better luck in the health department in the last couple of seasons, seems to be well on his way to establishing a new career-high in home runs wearing the Yankees uniform.
His career-high overall, 59 in 2017, is proof that he is one of the premier power threats in the game.
