I had never heard of Judge before tonight but they spent nearly an entire inning talking about him and his size. They were pushing for him to enter the home run contest and were predicting that he would win it all. They claimed he would be a much better home run hitter than Giancarlo Stanton.

Exit velocity is the new rage among sabermetricians, and Judge and Stanton are basically the 2 players who have exit velocity in a different stratosphere than everyone else in baseball. It's basically the speed of the ball right after it's hit. In short, he launches it a fucking mile and it goes there fast.
