Anthony Rizzo wants Aaron Judge back with the New York Yankees for more than one reason.

Just re-signed with the Bronx Bombers, Rizzo is clearly happy to continue playing alongside one of MLB’s best players. In his opinion, Judge’s fate is also more important.
“I hope Judge stays just to play,” he told reporters. “Because you see a lot of team icons not getting what they deserve because they put so much into the team.” As perhaps the most prestigious MLB franchise in America’s largest sports market, one of the Yankees’ top stars usually isn’t too worried.
Although team president Hal Steinbrenner is not as spendthrift as his father, in 2020 with Gerrit Kerr signed a nine-year, $324 million deal, showing owners are still willing to do more for elite talent. judges may be an exception.
The Yankees made a seven-year, $213.5 million final offer to the four-time All-Star before the season started. He went on to hit an American League record 62 homers and finish with a 1.111 OPS. – year, $324 million worth of deals this winter.
Despite how much his net worth has skyrocketed, you still think New York is his most likely landing spot. Yankees can’t afford to lose him, their ALCS exit exposed how reliant they are on 6’7″ they’ve turned into hunks … they’re also one of the few teams that can give him the money he wants.
Ironically, If Judge isn’t wearing pinstripes in 2023. Can’t do justice to homegrown stars.
