Default Is Aaron Judge Headed for the Best Single Season with 200 Strikeouts?

He has a chance ; He's at 178K as I type this.

Here are some other players' seasons to compare:


Mark Reynolds 2009

155G-578AB-98R-150H-30D-1T-44HR-102RBI-.260BA-.349OBP-.543SLG-.892OPS-24SB-9CS-76BB-223K

Chris Davis 2015

160G-573AB-100R-150H-31D-0T-47HR-117RBI-.262BA-.361OBP-.562SLG-.923OPS-2SB-3CS-84BB-208K


Several players have had similarly outstanding seasons in spite of 199 Strikeouts:

Ryan Howard in 2007-08 ; Adam Dunn in 2011 ; Chris Davis in 2013 ; Kris Bryant in 2015


I've always been amazed at how high some players BAs are in spite of huge numbers of strikeouts ever since Bobby Bonds set the then-record of 189 whiffs but managed to hit over .300!

per fWAR the best 200k season is Davis in 2015 with 5.6 fWAR and 148 wRC+

in 2013 he was worth 7 fWAR with 199 K's and a 168 wRC+


Judge's defense rates better boosting his fWAR but he's presently hitting 160 wRC+ so he has a good shot of besting Davis' 2015, been slumping lately tho

Have we really lowered the bar on Judge this far lol?

Acutally it's a neat question, but we've gone from Babe Ruth to Chris Davis in 2 months.

to be fair, the Ruth comparisons were insane. MLB is full of guys who had monster first halves to their rookie season and never did that well again. I suspect this will be the best all around season he has, but that power/defense combo will play well enough for him to be a solid 3+ fWAR annually, but he is going to K a ton.


and to be fair to Davis, he was one of the best players in baseball 2013 and 2015.

I think that's right, and if they have not already, his card values are going to drop tremendously from their giddy peak.

If he keeps hitting 40 bombs a year, being a Yankee I think his value will stay up.

I don't collect modern tho,except for the odd Braves prospects, so not sweating it!

Aaron Judge is in the category of Adam Dunn, Ryan Howard, and Dave Kingman. People need to pump the brakes on this guy, great potential talent, but still a lot of work ahead to show.....Someone last month compared him to Mickey Mantle, that is beyond humorous....

Considering home many homeruns have been hit this year, a 40 homerun guy who bats in the .270s is valuable but hardly historic. But since he's on the Yankees he will get hyped well beyond that.

Looks like a Judge card sold recently for $18K plus.
