3 Reasons Why the SF Giants will not get Aaron Judge in free agency
Reason #3: The Giants are not the only team that wants Judge
As was previously alluded to in the last slide, the SF Giants are far from the only team who will want the services of Aaron Judge going into this offseason.
While money should not be an issue, there are teams out there with bigger pockets who may be willing to shell out even more money than the Giants are to convince Judge to sign with them.
Teams like the Dodgers and Yankees surely stand out as the biggest impediments to the Giants being able to land Judge. With the year he is having, the Yankees would certainly seem keen to keep Judge, arguably the face of their franchise, for as long as they can.
Judge himself has even said that he wants to be a Yankee for his entire career.
If this is true, then it may be tough for the Giants to break through and sign him if there is a lot of mutual interest to keep Judge in a Yankees uniform for a long time.
In sum, it is easy and understandable to fall in love with the idea of Aaron Judge signing with the Giants this offseason. But given facts such as Oracle Park historically favoring pitchers, the Giants reticence to sign big name free agents to lucrative deals, and the fact that there are other attractive and dedicated suitors suggest that Aaron Judge will likely not be a Giant anytime soon.
