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.

Clutch comes with experience.  I'd like to think he'll develop that intangible as he gets older.
I do feel like many of his hits and HRs do tend to bury teams and or put them in a hole early.  He's on base a lot early, making pitchers work.
