The baseball universe woke up Wednesday with some big news: The New York Yankees agreed to re-sign American League MVP Aaron Judge to a nine-year, $360 million contract that will make him one of the highest paid players in the sport.

For a moment Tuesday, it seemed Judge was leaning toward signing with the San Francisco Giants.

The San Diego Padres were also in the mix at the last minute with an incredible offer:

The Giants’ offer was also believed to be better than the Yankees’.

In the end, Judge sacrificed money and a longer commitment to return to the Yankees.

People in New York are delighted with it.

And Judge, of course, is now a very, very rich man.

This contract is the result of a talented player betting on having a great season and increasing his earnings with a better payday.

The Yanks offered him $213.5 million over seven years before the 2022 season, and he opted to wait until free agency.

A life-changing decision for Judge

That decision changed his life, as he earned almost an additional $150 million.

It was well deserved, after he slashed .311/.425/.686 with 62 home runs, the MVP award and a new AL record for round-trip home runs.

Fans begged him to stay, and after a long process, he made sure to stick around for a long time.

Now that they’ve re-signed Judge, the Yankees can focus on improving the roster they fielded in the ALCS.

They got swept by the Houston Astros there, so they really need to bring in some backup.

Will they have enough resources left?

Will they be willing to use them?

It will be fascinating to find out.
