Well that was just a ridiculous home run by Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge. It went to Connecticut. He's not having a great second half in terms of making contact because pitchers are treating him different. And he was always going to swing and miss. But he should be among the top power bats for years. Second round on fantasy next year might be aggressive but it's 40-homers a year.

After hitting his 37th home run of the season, a 457-ft monster shot off Robert Gsellman, Aaron Judge talks about his adjustments with Yankees assistant hitting coach Marcus Thames.

Jered Weaver announced his retirement today after 12 seasons and 150 wins in the big leagues. He twice finished in the top three in the Cy Young voting, but he was also one of the more entertaining pitchers to watch with his unusual slingshot delivery and ability to keep batters guessing. Even as he lost his fastball he remained effective for a few seasons, going slow, slower and slowest and displaying the art of pitching.

The injury bug continues to bite the Mets, who made both Wilmer Flores and José Reyes late scratches with left rib cage injuries. The resultant lineup moves led to Travis d'Arnaud making his first career start at third base.

Carl Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown in 1967. "Yaz had the most impactful season on a franchise in the history of the game," said Ken "Hawk" Harrelson, at Fenway for 50th anniversary of Red Sox's "Impossible Dream" season. "It was a renaissance of baseball in New England because of No. 8 and No. 16 (Jim Lonborg)."

Manny Pina has hit some big home runs for the Brewers this season and he hits another, a two-run shot to give the Brewers a 7-6 lead in the eighth. That's five home runs on the day for the Brewers as they go for their fourth win in a row after dropping six straight. Can they hang in the NL Central race? After this game they head out on a nine-game road trip to Colorado, San Fran and L.A.

David Price didn't feel as "free," in John Farrell's words, when he threw Tuesday. Received treatment today, slated for more flat-ground throwing Thursday.

Mets GM Sandy Alderson was not happy with Robert Gsellman, who had told a reporter "I don't really care" when told of Alderson's comment of "he needs to pitch better" on Tuesday. But Alderson did say "I'm going to give him a pass" since Gsellman was pitching Wednesday, his first start since June 27. Gsellman has a 6.16 ERA in 76 IP in 2017. "I hope he reflects on the implications of that statement and the potential consequences of that statement and gives a better response the next time out," Alderson said.

Joe Maddon has moved Kyle Schwarber up to second in the lineup while Ben Zobrist will lead off on Wednesday against the Reds. Schwarber broke a string of 8 consecutive strikeouts recently but has reached base since then several times including as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning last night when he singled. Ian Happ is in center with Alex Avila behind the plate.

It is odd that everyone seems to be hitting more home runs but Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun, who homered today, is headed the other direction. Calhoun hit 26 blasts two seasons ago but isn't likely to approach that figure in 2017. One must assume there has been some underlying injury so don't ignore him as a potential top-50 outfielder next season. He could certainly bounce back.

It's not every day you reach base three times and the fans leave a little disappointed, but it appears Giancarlo Stanton's streak will end at six games in a row with a home run as he's 2-for-4 with a hit by pitch, singling twice on a blooper and groundball hit and also grounding out twice.
