In the original post, Judge, who finished runner-up to Altuve that season, wrote the following:
“M-V-P!!! Nobody more deserving than you!! Congrats on an unforgettable 2017!!”
Well, it sure was unforgettable.
Hence, don’t expect the two to star in any remakes of the movie “Twins” anytime soon.
That season the Houston Astros second baseman edged the New York Yankees right fielder, garnering 27 of 30 first-place votes. Judge would earn AL Rookie of the Year honors, swatting 52 (actually he was screwed out of 53 by instant replay) home runs that season. Altuve finished with an 8.3 WAR, while Judge posted an 8.1 WAR that year.
So, while you can’t erase an MVP Award, you can erase an Instagram post acknowledging it happened or well technically not really in this case because the Internet is forever.
