After the important session, the Yankee captain, Aaron Judge, appeared before the media for a quick chat.

Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees captain, revealed how urgency has always been a part of Yankee culture. Furthermore, the slugger lauded the front office’s off-season moves to upgrade the roster.

The New York Yankees are reportedly active in Blake Snell’s curious pursuit. Despite financial tussle, the Bronx Bombers seem ready to strike if the starting pitcher lowers his ask. However, Scott Boras continues to play the chasing game to fetch a hefty contract for his client. That being said, Yankee captain Aaron Judge, who holds a significant say in front-office matters, dropped a major hint on the team’s off-season plans. In his first press conference of the season, Judge said another big roster move could be on the way. While the captain refused to reveal details, many linked it to Blake Snell’s pursuit. Just days ahead of the Grapefruit League, the two-time CY Young pitcher’s market is heating up. As per rumors, the Yanks have an offer on the table for Snell.

However, the pitcher’s agent, Scott Boras, suggested a counteroffer. Since then, the negotiations have hit a stalemate. Additionally, the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Angels are also floated as potential landing spots. However, the reigning NL CY Young champion pitcher is interested in donning the pinstripes. At this point in the off-season, a short-term contract remains a realistic possibility. However, for that, Snell has to settle as his ask is unrealistically ambitious. Overall, as the offseason progresses and the Yanks’ roster takes shape, the question of whether the team will sign Blake Snell remains unanswered. Judge’s comments offer insight into the team’s mindset and approach. However, only time will tell what the future holds for Snell and the Bronx Bombers.

In a fresh take, Yankees captain Aaron Judge revealed of having a detailed conversation with the club’s managing partner Hal Steinbrenner and general manager Brian Cashman about the team’s philosophy. He said scoring runs and driving RBIs are things he has always held to the highest standard. “That’s one thing that I try to take pride in,” said Judge.

According to Aaron Judge, driving a walk cannot be measured, but it’s an important skill. Last season, as well, Judge dropped hints on bringing in a change in the team’s philosophy with regards to hitting. He wants more guys who can play traditional baseball instead of guys who can slam towering hits. Having said that, it remains to be seen how much Steinbrenner and Cashman offer levy to Judge to carry forward his alleged game plan.
