Yankees fans are freaking out over Aaron Judge’s Instagram post and posting | Tech Reddy
New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge thanked the fans after winning his AL MVP award. Is he on his way out or is there a sign he’s coming back?
Social media advertising in itself is innocent. Despite the messages behind these posts, fans and experts alike can read very little of them.
Yankees fans are different. With AL MVP Aaron Judge hitting the free agent market, fans are looking for an indication of his intentions this winter. Could a simple post thanking fans for their support be a sign that his time in New York is coming to an end?
The last line of Judge’s caption is the most important: “Thank you to the fans and the city of New York- lucky to receive this award in awards.”
Even though Judge’s speech is in the past tense, it is necessary because time has come to an end. It’s not like he’s planning on getting out early, even if some do. Others thought Judge’s caption was a sign he was coming back. Which one?
Did the Yankees make an offer to Aaron Judge?
Although it cannot be verified, Dominican journalist Ramon Carmona said that New York made its first offer to Aaron Judge this season. According to Carmona, the deal is worth $337 million, although it is not known how long the deal will take.
I certainly don’t want to defend Carmona, but he’s no Jeff Passan or Ken Rosenthal, so it’s best to take any report with a grain of salt for now. However, if we are operating under the assumption that the Judge was offered $337 million, we ask whether that offer is acceptable.
Judge reportedly wants more than $300 million — which he’s sure to get after this year. One would think that $337 million is in the ballpark of what Judge’s team is hoping for.
However, Judge is in no rush to agree to that deal, as he has many suitors this winter. The winter meetings haven’t even taken place yet, and contract talks will heat up during that time.
