Yankees Make Updated Offer To Judge: “We’re Certainly Not Going to Mess Around"

The New York Yankees are getting down to business with Aaron Judge. They're obviously feeling the heat of the rumors that the San Francisco Giants will stop at nothing to bring Judge home to the Bay Area. GM Brian Cashman says they've made a new updated offer to their franchise player.

Judge turned down the Yankees' offer of a 7-year, $213.5 million extension before Opening Day, obviously a shrewd decision, as his MVP record-breaking season has earned him at least another $100M on top of that. 

Cashman knows that time is of the essence: “It’s in real time, so we’re on the clock. We’re certainly not going to mess around.”

Just how important is Judge to the Bronx Bombers?  

The stats show that, after the All-Star break, while Judge hit .349 with an insane 1.287 OPS, the rest of the Yankees hit just .223 with a .652 OPS. 

Cashman did sign one player to a new deal today, but it probably won't excite Yankees fans too much: 

Despite thoughts that he would get non-tendered, the Yanks actually signed Isiah Kiner-Falefa to a one-year, $6M deal.
