Now let’s cross boroughs into the Bronx for a second and take a look at the Yankees.

The Bombers have definitely surprised everyone around the league as they are first in the AL East. A huge part of that is due to a 6’7’’ slugger named Aaron Judge. It is no question that Judge will be representing the American League down in Miami for the 2017 All Star Game. 

Let’s compare Conforto’s numbers to Judge’s, who has been the talk of New York baseball for majority of the MLB season. Conforto leads in every major category except home runs, which even then, he is only two behind.

See for yourself below:

Conforto has sparked a club who has been struggling to play consistent baseball. It’s worth mentioning that he has done so batting leadoff, compared to Judge, who bats in the middle of the lineup.

If Conforto can continue this tear he is on, then there is no doubt that he should be taking his talents down to South Beach for the midsummer classic.
