    If Judge doesn't hit 62, is it the biggest choke of all time?

    I have been thinking about this for the last week.
    As amazing as his season has been, he's lost the triple crown because of the HR race. If he does not complete that quest, he loses both.

    There have been many game chokes and many situational chokes that are brutal but if he had 30+ ABs to hit a home run and doesn't?


    My bigger concern is if he doesn't, does he carry that into the playoffs.

    Yep, I'm asking, would it be, the biggest choke of sports history?

    Not imo. He has tied the record, quite the accomplishment in itself. I think he may still have a shot at the triple crown. Luis Arraez: .315 Is he pressing? I think so.
    Judge : .311

    You want chokes?

    1) 1969 Cubs
    2) 1986 Red Sox WS flop
    3) 1996 Greg Norman Masters
    4) 2004 Yankees blow 3-0 lead to you know who.


    Sell the Team, HAL!

    They are sitting him!!!

    Norman is up there.
    78 Sox should on that list!

    But this is an individual achievement.

    Doc, I noticed you didn't say, no or even answer!
    It's a rough call. To be very clear, it takes nothing away from what he's done. It is a spectacular season but if he doesn't put the cherry on top after having 8 games to do it? If he was hitting lasers angering hits, it would be one thing but he is clearly pressing and now, with 8-10 chances left, it has to be getting more and more tense.

    I think it will be the biggest choke I have seen for something like this.

    Agreed. Also 78 Sox. 86 sox.
    That's team thing. I am talking purely individual for a moment like this.

    No. I donít even think itís a big deal. In a way, itís almost as cool that he stays tied

    Just hope it doesnít carry over. Without him being what heís been all year, we are toast

    FYI, Expect a thank you from Judge for this thread. When I wrote it I thought, watch, he will hit an hr in his first AB.

    I take full credit for 62

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Johnny was sending him swing thoughts and analysis between AB's on the IPAD.. What else would Judge be reading on that thing all the time ?

    Judges wife probably helped him " relax" between games, got his head thinking straight.

    I was in 8th grade, just starting to get really serious about golf during that spring/summer. I've watched a lot of tournaments, to this day I've never seen another pro choke that badly.. Non baseball collapses that i've ever watched, Norman is at the top.. Best player in the world at the time by a wide margin

    I remember Norman saying he new that was the beginning of the end, because he was trying to hit a wedge 123yrds and it went 116.. He was right, he was never the same

    Can you imagine if that happened this coming weekend?
    "Do you know who I ****ing am? Did you ever hear of 62 HRs? Yeah, that's my husband. He's the guy who hit 62 hrs this year while you were pulling overmen and harassing them. If you live under a rock, I'm married to Aaron ****ing Judge. Yankees superstar and non PED HR king of the ****ing world"
