BBB Debates: Aaron Judge in the Leadoff spot

With Opening Day just six days away at this point, the Yankees 25-man roster is coming clearer into focus.  What may not be clear, just yet, is the batting order that Aaron Boone will roll out next Thursday when the Yankees take the field against J.A. Happ and the rival Toronto Blue Jays. Today, Boone may have peeled back the curtain a bit into what exactly he might be planning.

In a few minutes, the Yankees will take the field against the Boston Red Sox in one of their final games of the 2018 Spring Training season (TV: YES, ESPN).  You may have noticed already, but Boone is batting 2017 American League MVP Runner-Up and 2017 American League Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge in the leadoff spot today versus Boston left-hander Brian Johnson.

All-Star ballot update #3: Aaron Judge reigns supreme

After a big night in Anaheim, Aaron Judge continues to collect accolades in 2017 as he is the leading vote getter in all of the American League for the second week in a row. The man who heard MVP chants 3,000 miles away from his home stadium and is currently leading the league in the Triple Crown categories is pulling away from second place vote getter Jose Altuve by almost 300,000 votes.

The rest of the team remained relatively stagnant in terms of their position from last week. Altuve is pulling away from Starlin Castro by a little less than 600,000 votes. Holliday is closing in on Nelson Cruz for the designated hitter starting position, but still sits at second place by about 180,000 votes. Gary Sanchez and Didi Gregorius are having a scorching hot month of June and are making strong cases for both of them to selected to play in the Midsummer Classic. Gary Sanchez is up to ten home runs and 28 RBIs, while Gregorius is hitting .344 and is in the midst of a 14-game hitting streak. However, both players remain fourth and third respectively among players in their position. Brett Gardner is still five players out of a starting position, and Aaron Hicks is not on the ballot.
