It’s the question that has yet to be answered.
Can anybody stop Aaron Judge?
Or for that matter, can anybody stop the New York Yankees?
The team is red-hot thanks to a crazy start by Judge, who has already hit 14 home runs and is batting .315.
A four-hit, two-homer game against the Baltimore Orioles helped him stay hot and keep the Yankees on a winning pace.
In fact, Judge is in some elite company right now thanks to his hot start.
One Yankees analyst points out that Judge is at 14 homers through the first 36 games for the second time in his career.
The other time he did it was in 2017.
The only Yankee to have done it at least twice is Babe Ruth.
This is the 2nd time Aaron Judge had hit 14+ HR in the team's first 36 games of the season (also in 2017).
The only other Yankee to do that 2 or more times is Babe Ruth (1926, 1928, 1930)

Judge is slowly but surely putting his name next to some of the greats in Yankees history.
He’s hitting home runs at a rapid pace, just as he did in his rookie campaign of 2017.
That year, he won the AL Rookie of the Year and wasn’t too far off from winning the MVP award.
This year, he’s tearing it up and might just be an early candidate for the MVP award.
To be in the same company as Ruth in anything is extraordinary.
Judge is proving what kind of player he can be when he’s healthy.
He can easily win an MVP award if he’s healthy and putting up these kinds of numbers.
There may not be a hotter hitter on the planet right now than Judge.
He is crushing home runs like nobody’s business and is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon.
We’ll see if it translates into an MVP season.
