Aaron Judge's Torrid HR Pace Is Now On Track With Barry Bonds' Historic Season

Aaron Judge is on another level this season, but could the Yankees' slugger reach that 

Home Run Tracker (yep, it exists), going into Saturday he was on pace for 66 homers, which would pass Roger Maris (61) for most in team history. Thanks to another tater, he has upped that pace to 67. Sixty-seven longballs would certainly be impressive, and would beat Sammy Sosa to become the third-most in a single-season (Sosa did it during the ELECTRIC 1998 season), but it would still come up just short of Bonds' mark of 73. Mark McGwire is second on the all-time single-season list with 70, which he also did during that '98 season.

16th-toughest schedule the rest of the way, so the opportunity to make up ground will be there. A seven-game West Coast swing at the end of August against the A's and Angels seems like a good week to circle, for what it's worth. Barring injury - or rest, which the Yankees could do with Judge seeing as they lead the division by a billion games - the 30-year-old should give Bonds a run for his money.
