Do you think it has to do with facing weaker pitching a la Orioles, and is the increased production coming either in the first couple innings or when the Yanks are already ahead 5 to 7 runs (aka "Danny Tartabull HRs")...? What about down 2-1 in the 8th with a guy on base...?
I don't see Judge getting the Big Papi deadly clutch homers, especially off folks like Indians starters when cards are on the table. I hope I am proven wrong.

His Sep. numbers include games against presumed playoff teams Boston and Minnesota, so he's not just beating up on scrubs.  I'm not going to judge clutch hitting until the postseason.  This team has been incredibly un-clutch in October for years now and I'm hoping the new blood changes that this year.
