After the crackerjack of the season with 62 home runs that Aaron Judge had in 2022, he is undoubtedly the biggest name in this year\’s free agency. As a result, the baseman declined the Yankees\’ offer of 214 million USD to land a more lavish deal. Meanwhile, the Yankees have been obstinate about their wish to get Aaron Judge back from the free agency.
There have been several rumors that Judge will eventually return to the Bombers. Chairman Brian Cashman even revealed that the team had offered a revised deal to the player. But now, the news that Aaron Judge is going to meet the Giants has caused some tensions in the Yankees\’ camp.
Aaron Judge Meeting With The Giants!
The majority of this year\’s offseason has been dominated by the news surrounding Judge\’s future in the American League. There have been several rumors going on that Judge might return to the Yankees when the dust settles. However, this does not mean that there are not any other contenders for Juge. Many believe that if there is one team that will give the Yankees some stress over Aaron Judge is San Francisco Giants. Given the fact that Judge is a native of California. Morover, he used to root wholeheartedly for the team during his growing-up years.
Meanwhile, the Thanksgiving holidays for the year are approaching. Therefore, Aaron Judge is headed to his hometown of San Francisco to spend some quality time with his family. On Monday, MLB network\’s Jon Morosi broke the news of Judge arriving in San Francisco. However, in the midst of thanksgiving, there have been reports that while in the city Judge, who, despite his wish to continue with the Yankees, is due to meet with the San Francisco Giants.
As per the reports by MLB.com, the meeting between Aaron Judge and the San Francisco Giants\’ management is set to take place on Tuesday. Ever since Aaron entered free agency, SF Giants have been considered a very series threat to the Yankees in the race for Judge. If San Francisco Giants were to get Judge in their camp, it would certainly take more than just childhood admiration and the location of Judge\’s hometown. As per the reports, after the scintillating season, Judge is looking at the figure of $300 million.
The Yankees are eager to have Judge back. However, the Giants are also willing to pay whatever is necessary to have the slugger on their team. The Yankees, Giants, and other teams, including the Dodgers, might enter a bidding war. And this would be good news for the free agent poised to sign a record contract. The Giants appear to be doing everything they can at this point, regardless of what happens. Even if that means adding several players rather than just one big name.
