How overrated is Aaron Judge?

On pace to set the single season record for strikeouts, how overrated is Aaron Judge?

Definitely struggling since the all-star break. Just missed robbing Cespedes of a homer earlier in tonight's game. AB now... HR.

He's a freak of nature, that's for sure but his struggles of late are because the pitchers are starting to figure him out.

I don't know that makes him overrated. He's certainly talented and it's hardly unusual to see a young guy hit a wall in their first full MLB season.

He better hit in Aug/Sept or there will be no post-season. Yankees fading, which makes me smile.

At this point I would not call him overrated, he was a virtual unknown 4 months ago. And one of the main reasons we know him as much as we do is because he plays in NY. Stanton plays in Miami, and is still hardly a mega super star because of the city he plays in.
The league has found a weakness or "hole" in his swing. Until he makes the adjustment, he'll continue to struggle.

He's a tremendous physical talent. I'm not sure how you can "over rate" what he is.

The kid is a victim of the long stretch of "Yankees' meh" and the media hype machine. They've wanted a star in NY to replace Jeter since Jeter's final two seasons. The home run derby just brought it all to a head.

Since play resumed after the All Star break, he has expanded his strike zone so much in trying too hard that he has made himself ineffectual at the plate, and everyone in baseball has seen it. Baseball adjusts to new players, and now it is on him to counter with some plate discipline.

If he doesn't get it together, he may become just a modern day Dave Kingman.

...which wouldn't be an extremely terrible thing, either. Fans will go to see him play if all he does is hit 'em as high as he does long. Hopefully - for him - he is experiencing the sophomore blues early and will adjust. Go Yankees!!!
