Judge’s 200th homer came in his 671st career game, behind just Philadelphia's Ryan Howard, who achieved the feat in 2009 in 658 games.

Interestingly, both of these guys came up as old.

Howard hit 2 HR as a rookie when he was 24.
Judge hit 4 HR as a rookie when he was 24.
Judge hit 52 the next year, setting the true rookie record. Ryan hit 58 in his 3rd year. Ryan holds the record for fastest to 100 and 200 HRs.

If you understand baseball, if you understand how athletes age, it is easy to see why Cashman is reluctant here.
a ten-year deal for a soon-to-be 30-year-old player is a terrible baseball business decision. For a 6' 7" giant who weighs 270-plus pounds, well, the historical comps are simply awful.

The odds that this is the absolute pinnacle of Judge's career are 3-1, at worst.

I just saw an IG post about how Dwight Howard hurt his back at age 26, and how that changed the trajectory of his career.

Don Mattingly hurt his back in the offseason after his age 25 season, which was his 3rd full season in baseball. Here's what he did in those 3 years:
207, 211 & 238 hits, leading the league two of three times.

44, 48 & 53 doubles, leading the league all three seasons.

110, 145 & 113 RBI, leading the league once.

.343, .324 & .352 BA, leading the league once, and when he hit .352, Boggs sat out his last series at .354, Mattingly went 7 for 12 and almost caught him.

He led the league in SLG% once, OPS once, and total bases twice.
