All Rise! Judge Signs 9-Year, $360 Million Deal With Yanks
Judge is back with a Major Contract.
Was there any real doubt that the New York Yankees would come up with whatever was needed to re-sign the Fan Favorite and Franchise player, Aaron Judge.
I would say that I would have liked to see him in another uniform, just to be intrigued on what he could have done on another stage, but why leave the biggest baseball stage on the planet.
So the Yankees finally put to bed any and all rumors of Judge leaving New York and sign him to a 9 year, $360 million deal that will almost ensure he remains in the Bronx for the entirety of his career.
Will we really know if Judge was always going to remain a Yankee or was he just overwhelmed with the numbers that he could not refuse. The thought was real that he would remain with the same team that drafted him and etch his name as another homegrown Yankee Legend to possibly retire with the only team he has ever played for; that is what Yankees fans wanted, one of their own to show loyalty and remain a Yankee. They got what they wanted.
Today on MLB Radio, there was a mention that the San Diego Padres offered Judge in the range of $400 Million, but he turned that down to stay in the pinstripes.
So overall, Yankee fans are thrilled with the signing and now hope the organization will do whatever it takes to improve the team and help Judge get his first of many Rings.
Yankee fans went to Twitter to express their joy of finally hearing the news:
