Aaron Judge cashes in with 9-year, $360M Yankees deal

Aaron Judge’s bet on himself paid off in a big way. Judge has agreed to return to the New York Yankees on a nine-year, $360 million deal, sources confirmed to ESPN early Wednesday morning, giving the slugger nearly $150 million more than what the team had offered him in the spring. He decided to remain with the Yankees after flirtations with the San Francisco Giants, the team located about 100 miles from where Judge grew up in California, and the San Diego Padres, who have made it clear they are open to making big moves this winter. The looming specter of Judge leaving for […]

Yankees focused on Aaron Judge, not going to rush him

The New York Yankees want to make clear that Aaron Judge is their top — and currently only — priority in free agency. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman stated Monday at the MLB winter meetings that the team is continuing to have conversations with Judge and his representatives, and that the two sides have been exchanging contract offers. He said owner Hal Steinbrenner, who said last month that he wants Judge to “be a Yankee for the rest of his life,” met with the 2022 American League MVP personally in Tampa, Florida. Steinbrenner is “putting his money where his mouth is,” Cashman said. “We’d […]

Toronto Blue Jays hire Don Mattingly as bench coach

Don Mattingly was expecting to spend a summer at home with his family. A call from the Toronto Blue Jays convinced him to get back into baseball. Mattingly, who left his job as Miami Marlins manager at the end of last season, is joining Toronto’s staff as bench coach to manager John Schneider, the team revealed Wednesday. Mattingly stated he’d been contacted by multiple clubs with offers for 2023, but nothing interested him until Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins called to chat. “Just the first conversation, it felt great, honestly,” Mattingly said on a video call Wednesday. “It piqued my interest right away.” […]

First baseman Anthony Rizzo opts out of contract with Yankees

First baseman Anthony Rizzo officially opted out of his contract with the New York Yankees on Monday night, according to ESPN’s Jesse Rogers and multiple reports. It was an expected move in a deal that would have paid him $16 million next campaign. Now, Rizzo enters free agency looking to secure a new deal coming off a season in which he had 32 home runs and 75 RBIs. But the 33-year-old veteran hit just .224, and was among a host of Yankees who did not hit for average during a season that included an American League East title. New York outlasted the Cleveland Guardians in the […]

Astros sweep Yankees to reach 4th World Series in 6 years

The Houston Astros made going to the World Series look easy. This is October, after all, the time of year when it’s easy to pencil in the Astros for making a deep postseason run — and 2022 marked their sixth consecutive trip to the American League Championship Series. And somehow, this year’s Astros team made things look even easier, steamrolling through the regular season to the tune of an American League-best 106 wins and sweeping all three games versus the Seattle Mariners in the ALDS and all four games against the New York Yankees in the ALCS. The Astros won Game 4 of the ALCS 6-5 on Sunday […]

Mets prep for playoffs with 9-2 rout of Nationals

Francisco Lindor and the New York Mets geared up for the playoffs with a 9-2 rout of the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, completing a fantastic regular season with the second-most victories in franchise history. Jeff McNeil won the major league batting crown without taking a plate appearance, and New York (101-61) finished with the same record as Atlanta atop the NL East. The defending World Series champion Braves had already clinched the division title Tuesday because they hold the season-series tiebreaker after going 10-9 versus the Mets. The only Mets team to win more regular-season games was the 1986 World Series champions at 108-54. Next up […]

Judge held homerless, still at 60, Jays beat Yankees in 10th

Aaron Judge stayed at 60 home runs, one shy of Roger Maris’ American League record, and the New York Yankees’ bid to clinch the AL East stalled when Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit an RBI single in the 10th to give the Toronto Blue Jays a 3-2 victory Monday night. Judge led off the game with a single, then struck out twice and walked twice as New York’s winning streak ended at seven. The Yankees would’ve sealed the division with a win. Judge has now gone six matches without a home run. He’ll try again Tuesday night to match the AL mark of 61 set by […]

New York Yankees’ Aaron Judge hits 60th home run, one shy of Roger Maris’ AL single-season record

Only five players had hit 60 home runs in a single season in the history of the major leagues — that is, until New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge joined that select club with a solo homer versus the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night. Judge turned on a sinker from right-hander Wil Crowe leading off the final frame and drove it 430 feet into the left-field bleachers, starting a five-run, ninth-inning rally for a 9-8 win. He took a rare curtain call, forced by his teammates. “I really didn’t want to do it, especially, we’re losing. It’s a solo shot,” he said. “He hit 60 tonight, and it’s […]

New York Jets QB Zach Wilson likely out until Week 4; Joe Flacco to start season opener vs. Baltimore Ravens

Two days after hinting that Zach Wilson could play in their season opener, the New York Jets revealed Wednesday that the second-year quarterback will miss at least three games as he continues to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery. Jets coach Robert Saleh stated Wilson won’t play until Week 4 “at the earliest” — a road game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. This means the Jets will open the season with Joe Flacco at quarterback, starting Sunday at MetLife Stadium versus the Baltimore Ravens — the team that drafted him in 2008. “We’re going to make sure mind and body are 110 percent and make sure we do right by him,” […]
