So, what happens if Aaron Judge breaks Roger Maris’s record? Technically, he would break Maris’s record and will set a new American League record. Actually, he will set a new Major League record, if he’s clean. Bonds, McGwire, and Sosa are out of this conversation. They all have the permanent asterisk next to their bogus hauls, and rightfully so.
I hope Judge doesn’t turn out to be just the next cheater who found a way to take HGH use to another level. I hope he’s just a naturally big man, a rare specimen perfectly capable of hitting all those round trippers on his own.
