Yankees: Aaron Judge’s contract value ‘to heaven’ thanks to his season

The New York Yankees are most likely having second thoughts. of not awarding his star Aaron Judge the contract that he asked for before starting the regular season of MLBsince very probably it would have been cheaper than what he will ask for when he becomes a free agent at the end of the current campaign, which is undoubtedly the best of his career and He is the great favorite to win the MVP if he continues with his current rhythm and without injuries.

The truth is that Judge did the right thing by ‘taking a gamble on himself’ as he stated at the start of the campaign, and according to FanGraphs, his value has skyrocketed, as at the moment, according to their estimates, his salary should be of $30 million for this campaign for his contributions to the team, being the second most valuable player in all of MLB.

The first is Manny Machado, who narrowly beats Judge by estimating a salary of $30.7 million, quite close to what the third baseman of the San Diego Padres earns, who will be earning $32 million for this 2022 as part of the contract that signed in 2019 for 10 years and $300 million.

Machado and Judge have 3.8 WAR at the moment this season, but because of the Minister’s defensive position, which is third base, his value is slightly higher than that of Judge, who in these matters plays an ‘easier’ position such as being right fielder, although this year he has started playing center field.

I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy.
