Aaron Judge choice is imminent, New York 50% vs San Francisco 50%
Aaron Judge choice is imminent. Still, the odds are 50 to 50.
Jeff Bankrupt, a reporter for “ESPN” in the U.S., reported on the 1st (Korea Standard Time) that “The New York Yankees offered Jersey eight years and $300 million.” This is a predictable figure. Since Jersey qualified for the FA, it has been expected that a contract worth a total of $300 million will be completed. There was also a possibility of exceeding $300 million.
The report was the first to mention the specific amount offered by the Yankees to Jersey. However, the San Francisco Giants, another “hot” courting team, are also likely to pay that much.
John Morosi, a reporter for “MLB Network,” appeared on the broadcast on the 2nd and said, “There is a good chance of choosing San Francisco. I think the Yankees are 70% and San Francisco is 30%, and I think it’s a higher chance, 50% to 50%. “If San Francisco offers about $320 million (about 410 billion won) on an eight-year basis with an annual salary of $40 million, the chances of jersey choosing are high enough,” he said.
Of course, it is true that San Francisco is a little more disadvantageous than the Yankees. Jersey’s hometown team from Northern California is San Francisco, but he has publicly expressed his desire to go to the “winning team.” In addition, it is burdensome to transfer from east to west and across the league. As he has grown from the Yankees to a “superstar,” he is also familiar with life in New York.
Jersey is due to make a decision soon. It is reported that the contract will be signed during the MLB winter meeting in San Diego from the 5th to the 8th.
