Aaron Judge: $360 million
Patrick Mahomes: $450 million
Nikola Jokic: $270 million
Connor McDavid: $7
Aaron Judge just signed a 330 million dollar contract in baseball . I just cancelled my son’s mma membership and signed him up for baseball 😂😂😂
How the Yankees stole Aaron Judge from the Giants at the last second.
“I’m a Nationals fan. I really don’t care about Aaron Judge at all.” -Kevin Durant
The #SFGiants failed to receive a rose from
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.
The Padres offered Aaron Judge $400M over 10 years before Judge signed his deal with the Yankees, per @BNightengale
Every five games, for the next nine years, Aaron Judge will earn $1,234,567, which is more than Mickey Mantle earned in his entire career.
Giants thought they had Aaron Judge signed, Warriors thought they had a win against the Jazz, and I thought I found the girl I was gonna spend the rest of my life but here we all are.
-Aaron Judge, $360m
-Trea Turner, $300m
-Xander Bogaerts, $280m
-Jacob deGrom, $185m
-Willson Contreras, $87.5m
-Justin Verlander, $86.7m
-Taijuan Walker, $72m
-Jameson Taillon, $68m
...among others. Way more than $1.5 BILLION in guaranteed money spent over the last six days.
Kevin Durant was asked about Aaron Judge returning to the Yankees:
"I'm a Nationals fan. I really don't care about Aaron Judge at all."
AJ Preller was asked if he feels like the Padres had a real chance to sign Aaron Judge, or if it was more about Judge's leverage in driving up the price for the Yankees:
Ayer en #MLB 👀
• Willson Contreras 🇻🇪 acuerda con San Luis por 5 años.
• Aaron Judge se queda en el Bronx por 9 años.
• Kenly Jansen acuerda con Boston por 2 años.
• Mosataka Yoshida 🇯🇵 acuerda con Boston por 5 años.
AJ Preller says talks with Aaron Judge started in the last few days, which led to a meeting.
AJ Preller talks about the Padres' interest in Trea Turner/Aaron Judge, and what the team's looking for moving forward:
The Padres reportedly offered the most money to Aaron Judge and Trea Turner, but couldn’t land either player.
explains that while Padres fans can feel disappointed, the team’s continued willingness to invest bodes well for this remaining free agent class and beyond:
Alright, lets see if Jed has the stones to offer Correa a deal he is probably really uncomfortable with. Aaron Judge 40M a year, Xander 25M, Turner 27M a year. I would love Jed to come in with a 8 year 280M contact or 10 years 310M for Correa. Gotta have star power.
In a way, I think Aaron Judge returning to the #Yankees helps the #Mets chances with Brandon Nimmo. Could take NYY out of the mix and with SF going into the shortstop market instead, could reduce the number of suitors.
But it’s Scott Boras and he always has a rabbit in the hat.

EDITORIAL | Yankee forever: Aaron Judge in pinstripes to stay
Congratulations to Judge and the team on the deal. It’s a perfect way to cap a season that will never be forgotten.
It was now or never for the Padres.
After missing out on Aaron Judge and Trea Turner, San Diego made its big splash signing Xander Bogaerts.
Plus, the Suns had to pull their starters halfway through the third quarter against the Celtics.

Aaron Judge is also hardly the kind of player you'd expect to age gracefully between now and age 39 (although yes I'm mad that the Giants didn't get him)
