The biggest move available, and one that they’re apparently very eager to pursue, would be signing free...

Yankees re-sign Aaron Judge: Checking on media reactions to the deal

Photo by Elsa/ One of the most frenzied blockbuster free agencies in recent memory had the baseball world buzzing. What a way to wake up! If the Giancarlo Stanton and Gerrit Cole acquisitions taught us anything, it’s that the Yankees save their most pressing business for the weirdest hours of the day, and that trend was no different with Aaron Judge. In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the Yankees sent shockwaves around the league inking the 2022 AL MVP to the largest free agent contract in MLB history, ensuring that their greatest homegrown player since Derek...

Nestor Cortes is the best hype man in the business, y’all. | Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The Winter Meetings are done, Judge is a Yankee again, all is good. Yesterday was the conclusion of a months-long saga that briefly looked like it was going towards the genre of tragedy. However, the Yankees pulled through at the last hour and retained their superstar face of the franchise, and Aaron Judge set the market with the biggest contract in free agency history (while turning down an even bigger offer). All is right in the world — now we’ll see what plans...

How will Judge’s contract impact Cashman’s spending room?

How will Judge’s contract impact Cashman’s spending room?

Photo by Adam Hunger/ The answer lies in Hal Steinbrenner’s willingness to surpass the second luxury tax threshold. Rejoice, rejoice. Aaron Judge is officially returning to the Yankees on a nine-year, $360 million contract. To put it bluntly, that number is higher than I expected any team would go to at the beginning of the offseason, but I am glad that owner Hal Steinbrenner knew the value that Judge brings to the Yankees both on and off the field and put his money where his mouth is to bring back the superstar. By all accounts, the number will probably be...

The Yankees made the move they needed to make and secured the services of Aaron Judge for the next nine years. Things were tough for a while as it seemed that The Giants might swoop in and bring the Bay Area native back and the Padres made things super interesting by offering him $400 million, but ultimately, Hal Steinbrenner made a long distance call from Italy and said all the right things to...

What did the media think of the Tommy Kahnle reunion?

Photo by Tim Warner/ Aaron Judge is understandably the story today, but let’s peak at what people said about the Yankees’ reported reunion with old friend Kahnle. Around midmorning on Tuesday, news broke of the Yankees’ second free agent signing of the winter. While many fans at the time were understandably disappointed that it wasn’t that signing (not yet anyway), there’s no doubt that the Yankees are a stronger team after yesterday’s addition to the roster. That’s because New York officially signed Tommy Kahnle to a two-year deal to return to the...

The Yankees won the Aaron Judge saga with a premium price

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees ended up paying over $140 million more than their Opening Day offer to Judge, but finally got their man and can start plotting the rest of the offseason. The Yankees, at long last, secured the services of star outfielder and reigning AL MVP Aaron Judge for the next nine years. It definitely wasn’t easy, and it did look like he was going to be a San Francisco Giant at one point on Tuesday, but the team came through with an improved offer — although it wasn’t the highest — and the player’s desire to stay prevailed. The...

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The AL Home Run King is staying in pinstripes and nothing else would have been acceptable. After reports came out late yesterday afternoon that “Arson” Judge decided to sign with the San Francisco Giants, my stomach started to drop. I felt sick. That report was quickly retracted, but I still couldn’t shake that uneasy feeling all night long. I had trouble falling asleep, and because of how the events of yesterday played out, I had a feeling that I was going to wake up to news about Aaron Judge making the decision that would define the...
