    Judge and Bellinger leading their respective leagues in HR

    I assume this has never been done this far into the season, 2 rookies leading?

    Now 46 HR combined, both slugging over 650... Judge 1.144 OPS

    Predictions???

    And Bellinger wasn't even on the big league roster during the first three weeks of the season. That's what makes it so impressive for him.

    Pretty cool. The question is whether either will break McGwire's rookie record of 49.

    I don't think I'd bet on either doing it despite their current pace.

    It's going to be close. Would be interesting to see how many more Bellinger would have had he started the season in LA.

    I'd love to see them both finish with 50+, would be pretty amazing.

    Judging players by HR's alone is not SC (Sabermetricalogically Correct). It's the fips, babips, oba, woba, ops, black-ops, photo-ops, wars, r-wars, d-wars, and star-wars that count.

    The SC mainstream didn't see either player coming, either, which is interesting.

    This is incredible. We have an era in baseball right now that would rival any other in history. Wave after wave of superstars have entered the league in the last few years and these 2 are joining the ranks quickly. Judge is having the greatest rookie season that I can think of. I don't mean to disrespect Bellinger, but he has a 100 point advantage in OBP. The season he's having is unreal, for any player. To be a 25 year old rookie, is unfathomable.

    They were both highly rated prospects...

    Bellinger being top 10 or even top 5 in baseball.

    Advanced Stats are Descriptive, not Predictive.

    This has been your daily reminder not to ask things of #s that they do not say.

    Both were highly touted prospects, with Yankees fans and scouts literally gushing over Judge becoming New York's Stanton.
    We’re pointing out that these statistics breed false narratives, and we value the truth. This isn’t about replacing old numbers with new numbers, or attempting to dissuade anyone from enjoying the aesthetics of the game. It is simply about telling the average fan about the reality of what actually happened on the field. The “Holy Trinity” of baseball statistics fail at this most basic task, and so they are not worth deifying any longer. - Dave Cameron

    I think Judge is a legit threat to break it, Bellinger I think will cool off.

    Both still outstanding players and exactly what this game needs.

    Oh yeah. I'd say both are legitimate threats to break it. Just saying I wouldn't bet on it. Adjustments will be made and they'll each slow down in all likelihood.

    What adjustments would you make for Judge?

    Also, I think Judge was in a platoon situation to start the year, but I am not sure how long that part-time role lasted for to be honest. I definitely think one, if not both, will surpass McGwire's rookie record.
