The New York Yankees and Aaron Judge could not agree to extend his contract in the offseason. This is undoubtedly one of the most talked about stories in sports. Check out the top sports betting sites for betting on baseball.
Judge came into the 2022 All-Star Game having a.284 average and 33 home runs. He’s probably playing for the title of Most Valuable Player this year. The media have been trying to get him to answer questions about his plans to return to New York for a while now. ESPN asked Aaron if he would stay with the Yankees at the All-Star Game. His response was interesting.
It is difficult to grasp what Aaron Judge is trying to say here. While some people think he is leaving, others believe he wants to stay. Judge is determined to remain a Yankee, based on everything he has seen over the last few months.
“Jacob, buddy, you know we got a lot of great Yankees on this team. You know, there are a lot of great Yankees that will be here for a long time, so hey, don’t be upset, don’t be upset. Hopefully, you’ll be a Judge fan for life.”
The Yankees will pay Aaron Judge, but only if they give him the money he wants will Judge stay a Yankee. It would be crazy for them not to give Judge a blank check and let him go with the production he has given them.
He’s already hitting 33 home runs this season, meaning he’s on pace to hit more than 50, which would be his second consecutive season of hitting at least 50. He has been a huge asset to the New York Yankees and is the main reason why they are currently at the top of the American League East with the most impressive record in baseball, 64-28.
Crazier things have happened, but in my opinion Judge will be a Yankee for a long time!
