Yankees Aaron Judge a Big 'Scary' Hitter, Says David Ortiz

"We've been talking, but right now nothing", Ortiz said, via MLB.com.

Ortiz's former teammate, Pedro Martinez, speculated that he felt Ortiz could return at some point.

Could a Big Papi reunion be in the cards?

The New York Yankees host the Boston Red Sox Tuesday night as part of a three-game series between the two best teams in the AL East.

"No, no. Not at all, man", said Ortiz. "I don't want to be bothering anybody".

For one brief moment though, as I read Pedro's initial tweet, I felt so happy.

I have been secretly holding out hope this whole time that Ortiz would announce a return before his number gets hoisted up to the façade at Fenway, but I also know that in reality, it's not going to happen. It seemed like we'd get the big guy back for one more run and I had visions of a World Series dancing in my head. (Xander) Bogaerts' power is going to come.

Entering Tuesday, Judge leads all Yankees hitters in home runs (18), runs (44), RBI (41), walks (32), batting average (.324), slugging percentage (.681), extra-base hits (28) and total bases (126).

The other familiar face next weekend is the one of former NESN play-by-play Don Orsillo who is slated to be in the FOX national broadcast booth for the Red Sox vs Astros on June 17th. The Yankees missed him when the two teams squared off in April.

Ortiz, who played 20 seasons in the Major League Baseball and was a designated hitter for the Boston Red Sox, said he believes the best is yet to come for Judge, even though he's become quite the fan favorite among Yankees fans already.

The event in question was the "All-Stars of New York" charity bowling tournament, founded by Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia to benefit his non-profit organization known as the PitCCh Foundation.
