3 reasons Red Sox shouldn’t sign Aaron Judge in free agency
2. Aaron Judge’s stats at Fenway Park are concerning
Judge may have notched his 56th and 57th homers of the season at Fenway, but it’s usually not that easy for him at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.
Even with the boost from those round-trippers, his career numbers in Boston are still far from impressive. Over 37 games, he’s hit .193/.301/.393 with 29 hits, including six doubles and eight home runs. He’s struck out 48 times. And it’s not like the Red Sox pitching has been dominant since 2017.
Then there’s the matter of postseason play. Sox fans will recall Judge going 1-for-4 with a single in last year’s Wild Card game at Fenway. Over 35 career postseason games, in general, Judge has hit .230/.340/.504. His 11 home runs are impressive, his 51 strikeouts less so.
He also has yet to play in a World Series; Bogaerts and Devers have won a World Series (two in Bogaerts’ case).
