Yanks down 9-1 early against the Orioles…but still win (and what will that do to Aaron Judge’s value?)

This is why I love baseball.

Anything is possible up until the last out of the ninth inning. And to mount an incredible comeback like the New York Yankees did last night against the Baltimore Orioles, there will be heroes in the game.

For the Yankees, there were several including Starlin Castro who tied the game at 11 with a homerun before veteran player sealed the deal with a game-winning three-run homer of his own to give the Bronx Bombers a 14-11 win.

Now before the season began, we asked what do you do with Aaron Judge? He came up late in 2016 and hit a few homers (as expected) but struck out a ton.

But this season, he’s batting a respectable .282 after almost being through the first month of the 2017 season with nine homeruns, 18 RBIs and 18 runs scored.

That’s already seen the value of his 2013 Bowman Chrome Draft base autographed rookie skyrocket from less than $100 before the season began to on average $350 as of April 2017.

The only question now is if he continues to play the way he’s been playing to start off 2017, how high can his value reach?
